Banksia Grove Village
The Banksia Grove Village shopping centre for ISPT and Coles Property Development Group is a two stage development. Stage 1 was a 8,000m2 complex with Coles occupying over 4,000m2 of the total floor area. The complex also includes two fast food outlets, a fuel station and 20 specialty retail tenancies. Architectural features include two entry statements at the northwest and southwest corners which include slender columns with a shallow roof structure. Stage 2 included construction of a 488m2 day care centre including external play area, 900m2 commercial building with two tenancies, and a 1,825m2 fast food pad site with associated car parking and a principal shared path extension along Pinjar Road.
Pritchard Francis was awarded the civil and structural scopes of work for both stages of the project.
Kingspan roof cladding was utlitise for the Coles building in Stage 1, alleviating the need for ceiling insulation. Furthermore, Kingspan has increased spanning capabilities compared with traditional roof cladding. To take advantage of this, the purlins have been designed at 2.4m centres which are significantly larger than standard building practice.
Within Stage 1, civil design and documentation has included bulk earthworks, 1:100 ARI stormwater detention, limestone block retaining walls and modification of Pinjar Road and Joondalup Drive to include slip lanes to the satisfaction of City of Wanneroo and Main Roads WA. Liaison with the northern developer was also undertaken to ensure the future road reserves blend in smoothly with the Stage 1 car parks and Stage 2 building expansion. Stage 2 works are proposed to be complete in April 2018.
