Project Description

Location: Mill Park, Victoria
Client: Westfield
Architect: NH Architecture
Value: $110 million

Umow Lai provided Westfield with independent Contract Administration consultancy advice for the new $110 million Westfield Plenty Valley Shopping Centre located in Mill Park.

The project, which was delivered on time and on budget, included mechanical and electrical engineering, a building automation system to control all the air-conditioning in the building, fire detection and protection and security. As part of our role, we reviewed the fit outs for all the 100 tenancies – they include five major retailers as well as a new Community Centre – to ensure that they complied with Westfield’s stringent guidelines.

As the independent contract administrator, Umow Lai took a pro-active approach to our work. We also formed a tight team with NH Architecture and Westfield, which helped resolve construction issues as they arose.

The Westfield Plenty Valley project won the 2009 UDIA Victoria’s Award for Excellence, ‘Master Planned Development’ category.
