This project involved the major redevelopment of the Brandsmart Outlet Superstore designed in conjunction with Cox Architecture. The project comprised of a new 1,500m² multi-level frontage featuring roof space-trusses and expressed shopfronts. Design features include:

  • Sustainable-design facades together with a carefully designed mechanical system that reused existing chillers to meet variable tenancy requirements and ensure user comfort
  • Optimised structural truss design allowed for simplified fabrication and construction process whilst achieving a striking architectural design

WGE modelled the entire job in Revit, and were commended by the steel detailers for providing a ‘first-pass’ 3D roof model which greatly assisted the fabrication process.
