Description of WorksScentre Group commenced refurbishment of the dining space, currently home to six restaurants will transform into a ‘modern-village’ style rooftop dining and entertainment precinct complete with up to 14 restaurants and is due for completion in 2020.

Casmar Group were engaged to complete the demolition phase of the works which included:

  • Internal strip out of 5 existing tenancies

  • Penetration to create a new lift opening

  • Demolition of floor tiles

  • Mechanical Plant demolition

  • Roof penetrations for new skylights

As the shopping Centre was remaining open throughout this project, stakeholder engagement was crucial to successful completion. Casmar site team successfully staged the demolition through the use of night shift and staggered start times to maximize the working window and minimize the impact on both retailers during the day and the cinema at night.

Casmar Group successfully completed two major pieces of structural demolition during this project. The first part involved creating a penetration through suspended slab to allow for the installation of a new elevator.

Secondly, we demolished a rooftop plant deck, mechanical plant and then created two skylight penetrations through the roof structure after the new skylights had been installed. This required a meticulous approach without utilizing any hot cutting methods due to the proximity of the glass.
