Scentre Group engaged Delta Group to deliver a challenging and complex integrated Early Works programme to drive a $300m transformation of the historic David Jones building into a luxury retail precinct in the heart of Sydney CBD.
Our scope of works included:
Unique to this project was its high profile and restricted/congested location between Hyde Park and Pitt Street Mall, as well as an accelerated programme to accommodate delays incurred during the COVID-19 Pandemic. With an 80 year old heritage listed facade requiring extensive protection/retention systems, bespoke methodologies and fabrication techniques were successfully employed to connect new and old steel.
Other challenges of the accelerated programme involved significant client and developer involvement/liaison; multiple large crews across 15 different floors and interface between contractors; strict environmental controls – noise, vibrations and dust; and extensive traffic management planning and key stakeholder engagement.
