Riverton Shopping Centre
To refurbish the existing shopping centre and provide new services to a major extension, which included new installation of all electrical services. This included high voltage switchgear, HV transformers, medium voltage distribution cabling, switchboards, power, lighting, communications, security CCTV and ‘people counting systems’ to the existing and fully operational shopping centre, including 2 large department stores and over 40 specialty shops.
The building program was extremely tight and access to various working areas very difficult. With completion required for Christmas ‘09, there were no time extentions available. We split our installation team into two – day shifts for new areas and night shifts for existing areas. Night shifts commenced at 6pm and finished at 3am. Each morning the shopping areas had to be clear of all building equipment including scaffolding, work platforms and all materials.
