As a first for Greenway, an existing tired retail premises was given a significant reinvigoration through the creation of a new Kmart store within the Rundle Mall precinct. Working closely with both the building owner and Kmart's own internal design and delivery team, Greenway orchestrated the complex modifications to this building to maximise the retail and design opportunities for each Client. Despite a complex construction process, including significant latent condition delays, the project was completed to allow Kmart to start trading in Adelaide's premier retail precinct prior to Christmas.
The project incorporated a complete strip out of the existing retail fitout and the creation of a new retail space with an "industrial" and "CBD" feel to it. As a combination of three existing structures, the building itself posed numerous design and construction challenges, all of which were resolved allowing incorporation of the key design strategies. New to Kmart was the creation of a two storey selling area, complete with internal escalators and 9.5 metre high feature display wall through the void. With feature ceilings, lighting and other exciting finishes, the store is unlike any other Kmart, and opened with great success and feedback from Customers.
