Castle Towers Shopping Centre – Enabling Works 1
The Castle Towers Expansion Project – Enabling Works 1 consisted of the ‘enabling’ of future demolition works for the Main Development $1B+ master plan to take place.
The works consisted of re-diverting all active services from a central arterial road (Castle Street) below the Shopping Centre and around the perimeter via new easements and consolidated service corridors. The services that required re-diverting included such authorities as Telstra (Comms), Endeavour Energy (HV Power), Optus (Comms), Jemena (Gas), Sydney Water (Water), UECOMM (Comms), Hill Shire Council (Comms) and the like.
Due to the critical nature of the project works took place over a 20-month period with planning, scheduling and execution of the works being paramount to ensuring the success of the project and major outages did not take place. One crucial element interweaved within the project was the construction of a new Substation and Main Distribution Frame (MDF) Room for the Shopping Centre to assist the demolition of one third of the Centre making way for the Master Plan works. Such works work critical in nature with a fully operational Centre requiring no loss of service.
The team successfully handed over the project to QIC, July 2017 prior to an additional Enabling Works package being rolled out.
