Rejuvenating a tired shopping centre while maintaining many existing tenants is never an easy task. Foster Construction accepted this challenge however, as well as the need for the project to be completed before the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
The demolition phase continually provided more surprises, with further unexpected remedial works adding cost and programme pressures. Foster demonstrated their commitment to achieve the client’s needs and produced a quality result. Very good H&S initiatives were undertaken not only for the workers but for the retail public as well. The client has continued to negotiate additional works with Fosters since the project finished.
