West Keira Shopping Centre (Wollongong Central Development) wins two International Awards

Last week it was announced that GPT Group (owner) won both the Popular and the Juror’s Choice A+ Awards in the Shopping Centre Category of the Architizer A+ awards. The global awards program received more than 3,000 entries from 80 countries this year. According to Architizer, winners "represent the best of architecture and design worldwide." Architizer are the largest online platform for architecture and interior design enthusiasts.
 
TBH was engaged to update and reforecast all of Hansen Yuncken’s (builder) documentation to better reflect the intended on-site methodology, preparing contract / target / and subcontract programmes and provide the required planning support to their on-site team. In addition to these programming roles, TBH continued an ongoing monitoring and reporting cycle for the works, that were used both for internal and external stakeholders.
 
The complex design / high quality of finishes / large number of relevant stakeholders / strict commercial requirements and contractor concerns all made this a challenging project where TBH was able to provide some clarity and assurances in an otherwise high risk project.
 
The project did experience a number of delays and issues, so as a priority TBH continued to work with HY to help reduce and mitigate these issues with their client (GPT) where possible. This allowed for open and transparent communication between the parties.
 
TBH also assisted in the preparation of a number of EOT claims / reports and assessments.
 
The project opened in October 2014.
