Construction Updates


Watch as the eastern end of the construction site builds up in our latest timelapse footage showing progress over the last month. Two levels of basement car park will sit underneath two levels of exciting new fashion stores in our Fashion Loop, which connects to a new Café Terrace. This area of the centre is expected to be completed in late 2020.
Across the site, the beginning of the new Fashion Loop mall is taking shape. H&M are continuing their store fit-out behind the hoardings, ready for their opening later this year. The multi-deck car park has now taken shape, with services and painting being undertaken over the next couple of months ahead of it’s planned opening later this year.


A new access way into the Big W undercover car park has opened, entering via the new multi-deck car park. Refurbishment works continue in the Big W undercover car park. A new car park guidance system is still being tested but is operational within the undercover car park, preparing for the system to be rolled out when the remainder of the multi-deck opens in late November. Façade works will be completed outside new H&M, with the new store’s fit-out underway. A section of new façade has been installed on the new multi-deck, showing a glimpse of the coastal design inspiration for the centre. Level 1 and 2 suspended slabs for the new fashion loop mall are now progressing. The basement car park is progressing well on the east of the site. Progress to suspended slabs across new sections of mall across the site will continue in the coming months. 

Inside the centre, September saw the removal of an array of hoarding, revealing a brand new Flight Centre store, new tiling and a stunning skylight. Over the next few months works will continue in this area, as we work on creating a brand new entry for Big W and finish construction of a new travellator from the undercover car park. Both are expected to open in November 2019.


New sections of the ceiling are being installed outside of the recently announced H&M store (behind The Coffee Club). External façade works outside H&M are nearing completion. New skylights are being installed for the small section of the new mall outside H&M. Concrete for sections of the new Fashion Loop (ground level) are being poured. Preparations are underwar for the final layers of the multi-deck car park roof, as well as service installation and painting on lower levels.  Façade works to the external walls of the multi-deck can now be seen from Karrinyup Road!

Our construction partner Multiplex continue on schedule as works across the site progress towards our first early launch later this year!

Services and roof works continue for the recently announced H&M store (behind The Coffee Club). New loading dock works continue well to the south of Big W. Refurbishment works are underway within the Big W undercover car park. Construction for the new travellator up from this car park is underway. Upgrade works within the existing mall continue, with painting, new lighting and cladding of the roof trusses underway. Updates to the existing columns in the central mall have also begun. Progress continues very well with new basement car parking throughout the site.

JUNE 2019

Considerable work has been undertaken on the future basement car parking. Form works continue for the ramps for the new multi-deck car park, with the beginning of Level 2 now clearly visible above the fence line. Concrete pours are being carried out across the site for both basement level and multi-deck car parking. Detailed excavation works are continuing for the future fashion loop, ahead of ground slab pours. Remainder of basement car park footings are being installed. Services are now being installed within the first new fashion stores behind Centre Court. Structural and façade works will commence soon for these first fashion stores this month. Works are progressing well for the new travelator near Big W. Mall ceiling works are progressing to prepare for new ceilings near Big W.

Works at Karrinyup are continuing well as part of its $800 million development, with our construction partner Multiplex progress the first new structures which are now beginning to take shape. Preparations for ground level suspended slab for the multi-deck car park have been complete. Reinforcement works underway and concrete slab pouring imminent for ground level slabs for the multi-deck car park. Preparations are underway for Level 1 concrete slab for the multi-deck car park. Footings and columns have been poured for the future basement car park at the North-East of the site. Level 1 concrete slab is complete for the first of the new fashion stores with the Level 2 slab for the roof underway. Ground works continue to prepare for future basement car parking underneath the future Fashion Loop.

Our construction partner Multiplex is continuing to make significant progress through April. Demolition to the north and north-eastern section of the site is now complete. Bulk earthworks to prepare for the multi-deck car park is now complete. Bulk earthworks for future basement car parking beneath the new fashion loop is well underway. Formwork, reinforcing and concrete of footings, cores and retaining walls in complete for multi-deck car park. Formwork, reinforcing and concrete footings commenced for future northern fashion loop. Concrete slab pouring complete for ground slabs in multi-deck car park and first fashion stores.

MARCH 2019

Progress is continuing at pace! Establishment of a 500-capacity area on the south-east corner of the site with amenities for construction workers. Two of six fixed tower cranes are now on site, with more being established soon. Construction continues for the multi-deck carpark, including the installation of pad footings, stair and lift cores. Completion of storm water retention tanks as well as backfill to enable laying the ground slab. Earthworks continue to allow construction of new basement car parking beneath the new Fashion Loop.


Take a look at how much progress has been made in the last month!  The car park deck has now been demolished along with the food court to make way for our new fashion loop. The first of six cranes have been installed on site. The new fire sprinkler tank construction has commenced. We have started the excavation ready for the construction of the new basement and multi-deck car parks. The construction of the foundations for the lifts and stairwells for the new fashion loop has commenced.


A sneak peek “above the scenes” into the scale of the progress being made on the east end of the new Karrinyup centre. The images [above/ below] were taken in late December 2018. Construction partner, Multiplex, has already completed the installation of the large stormwater detention tanks to the south-east of the site. Demolition of the undercover car park to the north east of the site (former car park 8A) has been completed. The demolition of the old food court is well underway. Installation of piling alongside the outside of Big W is underway so excavation can continue for what will be the future multi-deck car park. The construction team will begin to break through behind the large level 1 hoarding at Centre Court, which will eventually become the entrance to the new Fashion Loop.
