Woolworths have been implementing their new store fit out for a period throughout Australia. Macquarie Builders were successful in tendering and completing four of these refurbishments at the Newtown, Eastland’s, Sorell and Sandy Bay stores. The Sandy Bay store will be the largest to date and required 3 shifts a day at times to complete the works, while the store remained in operation. The scope of work included replacement of all surfaces and finishes in the bakery, deli, meat preparation, seafood and general trading floor. All checkout counters, work in the back of house and delivery areas was replaced. The stores remained trading throughout the process and special attention was made to health and safety and maintaining a tight program. All Woolworths’ projects required complex management of public zones during the construction and critical time management of the project deadlines. One of these projects involved a 24 hour working day and 7 day week, demonstrating the project management and site management team’s ability to deliver outstanding results and flexibility.
