Kane Constructions has been awarded the Lump Sum contract to deliver the DFO Jindalee Refurbishment Stage 1 & 2A project.
Stage 1 involves the reconfiguration of the factory outlet shopping centre tenancies in the south-eastern corner which will accommodate the proposed large format retail outlet. Stage 1 includes a reconfiguration of the southern loading zone, and changes in the hours of operation to suit the extended hours of the retail outlet.
Stage 2A accommodates a new six theatre cinema, which contains a premium ‘luxe’ cinema. The proposal includes a 207m2 increase to the existing shopping centre, featuring new food and drink outlets along with improved pedestrian connectivity on the eastern wall. Stage 2A will also include changes to the eastern façade and existing outdoor footpath access ways.
Additional parking spaces will be provided throughout the site.
The existing eastern wall will be replaced with additional entryways and permeable shopfronts which address both internal and external frontages. The outdoor footpath will be improved to incorporate landscaping treatments to accommodate the outdoor dining area.
The project will be staged to ensure continuity of operations to the remainder of the shopping precinct whilst construction works progress.
This project is set to reach Practical Completion by November 2020.
