Dan Murphy’s Secret Harbour had very tight time constraints and was completed in an impressive time frame of 16.5 weeks, which was a remarkable ten weeks ahead of schedule.
Wajuk Country | Secret Harbour, WA
The deadlines for this job were critical for Dan Murphy’s to be able to open and commence trading to meet their commercial objectives. The acceleration of the project enabled the store to open in November 2017 and take advantage of the Christmas trading period, rather than the originally forecast opening date of early February 2018 exceeded everyone’s expectations.
As well as the time constraints, i2C and TRICON were also required to construct the store with minimum disruption to the existing centre and its tenants. Collaboration and communication were paramount to ensure that any potential impacts on local customers were minimised. The project site was restricted to a confined area so that car parking was not impacted, hence precast concrete wall panels were produced offsite and delivered on the day of erection.
i2C exceeded all expectations in adopting a ‘can do attitude’ and collaborative approach as architect and lead consultant for the new Dan Murphy’s in Secret Harbour.
i2C played an integral role in the early completion of the project ensuring that design information was finished to accommodate the accelerated construction program and early project completion.
