The Canberra Centre is now one of Australia’s leading CBD centres which boasts an exciting mix of stores presented in an award winning, modern design with an unrivalled visual connection to its surroundings. A landmark expansion of the Canberra Centre (completed in 2007) allowed the creation of both commercial and entertainment precincts complemented by car parking and retail infrastructure.
Benmax was awarded the mechanical services contract for the expansion project and was responsible for delivery of systems to serve the 100 new specialty stores, two mini-major department stores, and new multi level car parking facilities that enhanced the existing Centre.
The expansion increased the Centre’s size by 33,000m2 bringing the Centre’s GLA to a formidable 90,000m2. New basement and naturally ventilated above ground carparks added 1500 spaces. Benmax worked in close partnership with the project consultants throughout the concept design, construction and into final tenancy fit-out to ensure the needs of the client remained the priority.
Since that time, Benmax has completed many projects throughout the Canberra Centre precinct including the refurbishment of the Monaro Mall building to create the centre’s new Beauty Precinct, upgrades to multiple long term tenancies, and fit outs of many of the centre’s new retailers.
