Renato U. Maccarone & Associates

Building Engineering was appointed in March 2016 to carry out extensive alteration and addition works to an existing retail site at 280 Whitehorse Road in Nunawading.

Works included the complete internal demolition and partial structural demolition of the existing building, followed by extensive structural steel works and a suspended slab poured within the existing shell.

Works also included a large extension on the main street frontage towards Whitehorse Road, utilising the considerable setback space of the original building shell.

The facility now features two storeys with three retail tenancies, with an additional 144m² office space on the second floor. Tenants consist of furniture stores Adriatic and James Lane/Sleeping Giant, consistent with other retail stores in the immediate area.

The project was completed in careful consultation with client representatives in order to respect religious holidays throughout the construction period.
