ADCO was proud to deliver Harvey Norman’s biggest large format retail project in Australia.
The $70 million design and construct project, located on the Queensland Sunshine Coast, includes one of the largest Harvey Norman stores in Australia, a Domayne, over 16,000sqm of specialty large format retail tenancies and 5,000sqm of support offices, all suspended over undercroft car parking for 901 vehicles. The centre covers approximately 72,000sqm of built form and is one of the largest enclosed homemaker centres in Australia.
ADCO’s design and delivery teams incorporated several innovations on the large-scale project. Our in-house design managers provided an alternate in-ground solution whereby the entire building structure was lifted 1.5 metres. As the site was situated in challenging, swamp-like ground conditions, the amount of material needing to be exported was greatly reduced.
The design team also redesigned the roof structure to reduce the overall head height of the building. In conjunction with the lifting of the building, the roof redesign effectively squashed the building avoiding potential delays in lodging amendments to the existing approved development application. This also provided the client a significant cost saving, helping the financial feasibility and approval of the development.
