Retail developer Con Berbatis has appointed Sydney-headquartered construction firm Built to carry out building works on Kardinya’s new $100 million town centre, under an early contractor involvement framework.

Dr Berbatis said Built would join the project and planning team for the redevelopment of Kardinya Park Shopping Centre, which is proposed to include a 12-storey apartments tower and a doubling of the retail floor space on offer.

Designed by Hames Sharley, recreational facilities such as a cinema complex, a swimming pool and rock climbing walls have also been proposed, to be integrated with a fresh food precinct and increased medical, dental and veterinary services.

Dr Berbatis said the early involvement of Built would allow the construction company to optimise the build.

“It’s really important to bring them into the team early to provide their expertise on building efficiencies, material options and improvements in building techniques,” Dr Berbatis said.

“Understanding challenges up front will allow us to develop solutions early, for example certain inclusions like travelators may demand long lead times - we need to plan and schedule details like that well in advance.”

Dr Berbatis said national retail leasing company Total Retail Group had also been appointed to handle leasing activities for the redevelopment.

Total Retail Group managing director Mark Galligan has more than 25 years’ experience in managing, leasing and redeveloping shopping centres across the country, Dr Berbatis said.

Mr Galligan previously worked at Scentre Group leading project and leasing teams for the redevelopment of Westfield Whitford City and Westfield Carousel.

“Mark brings to our project his outstanding lease negotiation skills that have added significant value to a diverse range of shopping centre and retail precincts throughout Australia,” he said.

“He has extensive and in-depth knowledge of the Perth retail market.”

A development application was lodged in December, while a date has not yet been set for it to be assessed by planning authorities.
