Hungry Jacks was originally built by Sitzler in 1989 and was destroyed in a gas explosion on 10th September 1994.
Hungry Jacks engaged Sitzler on a cost plus contract to rebuild the store. The clean up commenced on 21st October 1994 with construction commencing on 7th November 1994 and completion on 19th December 1994. Sitzler was under extreme pressure to complete the project for Christmas trading.
Sitzler utilised the original documentation, working around the clock to complete the project within five weeks. The difficulty at hand was the number of trades involved in a relatively small area and the sourcing of materials. To the credit of the project team these obstacles were overcome and the store was completed to high quality as was evident by a small number of minor defects on handover.
