Additions to and refurbishment of Woolworths' existing store at the Mitcham Shopping Centre.
The additions totaled some 250m2, including new Deli, Bakery, Meat Preparation and Sales areas. The loading dock was extended and part of the existing first floor offices demolished and replaced with a new raised section of floor. Refrigeration equipment, cool rooms and air conditioning plant were replaced.
In addition, the trading areas and stockrooms were re-orientated, the whole store effectively being turned through 900 and extended.
Each of the stores separate departments had to remain in operation throughout the construction process. This meant that two shifts for the majority of the period, whilst the store was effectively gutted, renovated and extended in stages.
A number of existing tenancies were vacated to make room for the extended Bakery and Checkouts and a new entry from the existing Mall. New slabs and ramps were constructed in the Mall to effect the extensions.
