APP helps keep shopping centre redevelopment on track

When QIC Real Estate embarked on a major redevelopment of the Westpoint Shopping Centre at Blacktown, they called on APP to help manage the project from design to completion over an eight-year period.

APP initially assisted with the development of the concept design and in procuring the approval of the Development Application.  We defined the project delivery strategy, assisted with the drafting of the complex contract documentation and the subsequent tendering of the major construction works.

As QIC’s Representative throughout the delivery phase, APP provided all administration of the contract acting as Principal’s agent and also independently to provide other project verification services.  Key APP staff were provided to QIC to ensure they met their obligations in other areas including tenancy coordination and management of other specialist contractors.

During the initial construction, major services and infrastructure relocations were required, including high voltage power and optical fibre communications diversions.  APP developed an early works programme to improve amenity and access throughout the existing centre in preparation for the construction works, and formulated a staged plan and project delivery methodology to minimise the impact of construction on the Centre’s revenue and operations.

APP also acted as QIC’s Representative for all matters relating to the diversion of one of Blacktown’s main streets to allow for the construction of a bus tunnel and interchange under the new shopping centre.




“Working as an integral part of the development team, APP has provided astute advice and a lot of dedication which has proved instrumental in getting our Blacktown project up and running, whilst still achieving QIC’s investment criteria.”
