This project consists of the construction of a 1900m2, three tenancy commercial / retail facility, including one large tenancy for ccupation by the key tenant; Officeworks. The building structure consisted of large tilt up concrete panels as the wall structure and dividing tenancy walls, steel roof structure and steel roofing, extensive use of cladding materials and large signage structures to give the building significant positioning along a prominent arterial road into Darwin city.
Sitzler undertook to complete the demolition and civil works for the building and carpark areas using their extensive experience and capacity within their own Civil division. In addition, Sitzler undertook to fully design, construct and erect all of the tilt up concrete panels for the project using their own in house labour and equipment. These self performed works were completed within strict and outside normal work time periods to ensure quality was maintained in the finished panels.
During the initial commencement of demolition and civil works for the site, Sitzler encountered and dealt with old fuel tanks, old building debris buried in the site, an existing sewer main diversion through the centre of the site, and asbestos pipework buried in the ground. Sitzler dealt with all of these issues efficiently and to the requirements of authorities without delay to the program.
Fit out of the Officeworks tenancy was required to occur prior to the completion of the project; this necessitated partial completion of the project prior to Practical Completion and managing the platform for Officeworks to carry out their fit out in time for the store opening in mid February 2011.
