Eastland Shopping Centre – The Shard

Project Overview
  • Project Eastland Shopping Centre – The Shard

  • Builder Probuild Constructions

  • Architect The Buchan Group

  • Location Ringwood, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / Complex Architectural Framing (Internal Complex Framing)

With the dynamic redevelopment at Eastland Shopping Centre projecting the centre into the future, a 3D elliptical sweep void geometric feature was created to transition visitors from the centre to the new Town Square area, spanning across three internal levels.

 

The Shard was a challenge for the builder and associated trades alike. High end finishes were demanded with minimal tolerances to work around building structure elements. After several builder and contractor design meetings, SBS Group was engaged to shop detail, design and fabricate all three levels of the Shard elements to support curved plasterboard for a class five finish.

 

After initial trials and set out points, levels 1 and 2 were successfully installed with level 3 proving the most challenging. Initial setbacks in manufacture on site to suit some of the twisted geometry were finally resolved with the finished project truly an outstanding icon and a credit to the plastering contractor’s workmanship.
