Project Description

FDC has recently completed the construction of the Home Hub building, a new bulky goods retail centre within the Sydney Business Park Estate on Hollinsworth Road at Marsden Park.

The 40,000sqm site includes the construction of a two storey ‘homemaker and lifestyle destination’ with over 18,000sqm of GLA which includes 35 different tenancies with tenants that range from takeaway food & beverage shops, a medical centre, a childcare centre, a gymnasium and homewares stores. Key tenants include The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Forty Winks, Snooze, PETstock, Repco, Supercheap Auto, Beacon Lighting and Plus Fitness.

In addition, FDC oversaw the delivery of 450 car spaces, an internal service road for deliveries, landscaping and multiple paved communal areas.

The 48 week project was delivered on time for clients Hargreaves Property Group, LaSalle Investment Management and Nix Anderson despite a large volume of variation works associated with the fitout of each of the tenancies.

A large team of consultants and subcontractors contributed to the success of the project including; architects Leffler Simes, structural engineers SCP Consulting, civil engineers ACOR, electrical contractor Apex Electrical, mechanical contractor Whiffen & Andrews, hydraulic contractor Ascend Services, cladding & partition contractor DDI Group, roofer Axis Roofing, civil contractor Menai Civil and Statewide Concrete.

Home Hub is currently open for trading with the grand opening of the centre scheduled for early October.

This is the second project that FDC have completed in the Estate, following the construction of IKEA, Marsden Park which was delivered in March 2015 and awarded a Master Builders Award for Best Retail Building $30M – $50M (NSW) in 2015.
