Top Shop – Carillon City
2013 – 2014
The Project Insight Project Services were appointed as Project Managers for the remodelling and upgrade to the Carillon City retail arcade in Perth’s CBD. The property is owned in partnership by Hawaiian Management and Brookfield Multiplex.
The project encapsulated the vacate of 30 existing retail tenancies over 3 levels of the northern end of the centre, demolition of the existing glazed barrel vault roof as well as the removal and reconstruction of the Murray Street level floor slab. The existing structure was modified to accommodate the new Topshop Topman tenancy over 2 retail levels and 1 back of house basement level totalling some 2,200m2.
In addition to creating a serviced tenancy for Topshop, the project included the construction of new façade to the Murray Street mall, installation of new escalators and lift to the tenancy as well as extensive modifications to the buildings mechanical, fire and electrical infrastructure. The malls on the Hay Street level were simultaneously upgraded with the removal of 4 existing escalators, installation of 3 new escalators and replacement of the mall flooring from the entry of Hay Street mall through to the new Topshop tenancy.
Significant portions of the work was carried out outside of normal trading hours to minimise disruption to the remaining tenants in the Centre as well as maintaining public access through the arcades which is Perth’s busiest pedestrian arcade.
The works were undertaken on a Managing Contractor arrangement with daily site meetings undertaken to determine design and buildability solutions arising from discovery on site as well as the tenants requirements.
IPS managed the Lessor/Lessee Scope of Works documentation and cost control on behalf of the Owners and worked closely with Topshop’s designers and delivery team to handover the tenancy for fit out on programme and fully compliant with the AFL and City of Perth requirements.
The Carillon City Topshop Topman store is the first in WA and the fifth nationally and opened its doors to the public in October 2014.
