The former Masters store located in North Lakes has been converted into the first Home Consortium store to open in South-East Queensland.

The scope of works carried out by Tomkins consisted of the creation of 10 new retail tenancies within the existing building. Works for the tenancies included new electrical distribution and base build hydraulic services to each of the tenancies. Inclusive in the works, Tomkins completed the full fit-outs to the Toys R Us and Focus on Furniture tenancies and warm shell fit-outs to six of the other tenancies.

The new retail mall features epoxy flooring and feature ceilings to the mall entry. The Tomkins team were required to infill the existing Masters garden centres’ roof and walls while also resurfacing the flooring to be suitable for the tenancies.

Tomkins relationship with the client was kept professional and well organised. With an already tight time-frame, Tomkins managed 23 floor plan revisions and 50 head contract variations. Tomkins did what was required to complete the project within the original time-frame, this included, working 7 days per week with night shifts to cover the additional works added during the construction period.

The new Home Consortium centre is a modern addition to the local area which will provide new job opportunities for the local community.
