Westgate Shopping Centre

project Year: 
05/2016

The refurbishment of the Westgate Shopping Centre was awarded to Esor & P Wise Joint Venture on 14/01/2016 with a contract value of R50 million subject to the BOQ finalization.

This is a refurbishment project of approximately 9000 m2 and is planned for 12 months.  It includes demolition and installation of new shopfronts, ceilings, tilling and ablution block refurbishment.  New lifts and new escalators will be included. New shops for new tenants are included as well as the involvement of tenant relocations.  Most of the work will be taking place after hours especially the noisy work.  The Mall will stay operational during the construction period. This Mall is buys and shoppers safety will have to be our main goal at all times.

With the project going as planned all participants are doing their fair share to get us to the planned practical completion date of 30/11/2016.

Although it was a difficult start to this project, it has armed us with knowledge and skill to work in this live environment.
