Located on the Central Coast of New South Wales, the Erina Fair Shopping Centre is a major retail facility for the region boasting over 330 stores and services. With a Gross Leasable Area of 113,741 the precinct caters for major retailers, specialty stores and dining outlets with an estimated 11.8 million visitors to the centre each year.
Benmax is partnering with retail building specialists Mainbrace Constructions to complete a major upgrade of the HVAC mechanical services at Erina Fair in a project that will see the team on-site until early 2020. The centre has undergone numerous major refurbishments and minor extensions since its original construction in 1986, and this upgrade project will replace ageing equipment and bring the centre’s HVAC services up to standard.
Benmax has completed numerous major upgrade projects within the retail sector and the experience of the team will be crucial to ensure the staged demolition and construction works do not interrupt the operations of the centre. The team is currently on-site with demolition of the existing plant rooms complete and upgrades to the equipment and systems underway.
