Turner & Townsend Thinc has been chosen to project manage the redevelopment of the Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
The US$260m contract will increase the mall’s size by 25,000 square metres, with room for approximately 570 stores when work is completed.
The redevelopment will create a new entertainment precinct including a new cinema complex with 13 screens and a revitalised west mall.
James Coffey, Turner & Townsend Thinc director said: "Billions of dollars are being spent on major shopping centre redevelopment projects across Melbourne.
"We are delighted to be working on this prestige iconic project which is one of the largest shopping centres in the Southern Hemisphere. Â
"This redevelopment will further enrich Chadstone Shopping Centre as a distinctive and unrivalled retail and community destination."
Chadstone Shopping Centre’s expansion is due for completion in mid 2017, with the first stage set to open in late October 2016.
Turner & Townsend acquired Thinc in April last year.
