Project Details

Located in the heart of Canberra’s CBD, the Canberra Centre is one of Australia’s leading CBD centres which boasts an exciting mix of retail, entertainment and dining experiences in an award winning, modern design with an unrivaled visual connection to its surroundings.

Benmax has a long association with the Canberra Centre having successfully completed numerous projects across the precinct. From major expansion projects, upgrades to long term tenancies, and fit outs for many of the centre’s new retailers, through to major plant and system upgrades across the site, Benmax has played a key role in the development of the centre over recent years.

Completed in 2007, Benmax delivered the mechanical services for the landmark expansion of the Canberra Centre that saw the creation of new commercial and entertainment precincts complemented by car parking and retail infrastructure. The team was responsible for delivering systems to serve 100 new specialty stores, two mini-major department stores, and new multi-level car parking facilities that enhanced the existing centre.

The expansion project increased the centre’s size by 33,000 m2 bringing the Centre’s GLA to a formidable 90,000 m2. New basement and naturally ventilated above ground carparks added 1500 spaces to the site. 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.

In 2017, the team went on to successfully deliver services for the major refurbishment of the Monaro Mall building. The project involved the refurbishment of the existing ground floor space and development of an expanded first floor creating an expansive beauty and wellness precinct, along with a dedicated lifestyle and homewares quarter.

Benmax has completed numerous fit outs for stores opening in the centre and upgrades to long term tenants. Some recent works includes King Pin, David Jones, Myer, H&M and Aldi, through to small retail stores including Watches of Switzerland, Adidas, Body Shop, Husk, Le Creuset, Robinson Books, The Pen Boutique and Gewurzhaus.
