Retail construction specialist Mainbrace has been awarded a $9.8 million contract to deliver a new top floor modern piazza-style dining precinct at Forest Hill Chase shopping centre in Melbourne.

The interior re-purposing project, for 151 Property, involves the installation of a new play area for children, an updated parents’ room, a new glass lift, the refurbishment of existing amenities, a full services upgrade, new mall finishes, furniture and joinery, as well as the construction of 10 new food and entertainment tenancies and kiosks.

Mainbrace will coordinate the project, which involves concurrent works on three different levels, to ensure a safe environment for customers and other tenants and to minimise disruption to trade in the existing centre.

Work on the new precinct – to be known as The Loft - commenced recently.

Mainbrace will undertake structured interior re-purposing projects in live operating environments to fast-track its completion in time for Christmas 2018.

The appointment represents an important next step in Mainbrace’s growth in Victoria as the company’s eastern seaboard expansion continues.

“Forest Hill Chase is a fixture in the east Melbourne community and we’re proud to be involved in a project that will breathe new life into this much-loved regional shopping centre,” Mainbrace VICState Manager Michael Fague says.

“We are progressing numerous redevelopment and interior re-purposing projects for high profile clients in Victoria and we remain focused on leveraging our national relationships with leading retailers and centre owners to build our portfolio further.”
