Working alongside retail building specialists Mainbrace Constructions, Benmax will deliver the mechanical services for the $9 million expansion and upgrade project at Hoyts Cinema Erina Fair.
Located within the popular Erina Fair Shopping Centre, the project will see two new movie theatres added to the complex and will include a much-needed update of HVAC systems serving the foyer, administration areas, amenities and bio box. The central plant will be brought up to standard with a new chiller, boiler, cooling tower and associated works completed, and the Building Management and Control System (BMCS) will also be upgraded to accommodate the system and equipment improvements made at the site.
One interesting feature of this project is that all mechanical services equipment items, including the ductwork, will utilise vibration isolation mounts to limit vibration transmission across the complex.
The Benmax team has commenced work on site and is expected to be completed in mid-2020.
This will be the second project Benmax has delivered at the Erina Fair Shopping Centre with Mainbrace Constructions. The team is currently on site completing a major upgrade of the HVAC mechanical services across the retail facility.
