06 Jun Westwood Mall
Scope of Works:
This exciting new 35,000m2 multi-level retail development with a 1,600 bay car park is situated on the intersection of the N2 and M13 highways near the University of Durban, Westville. Anchor tenants include Woolworths, Truworths, Pick ‘n Pay and the Foschini Group amongst others and features a multi-level 1,600 bay car park. The shopping centre will meet the growing demand for retail facilities in Westville and surrounding areas as well as a new proposed residential development on the adjacent site. An extensive cut to fill and cut to spoil operation was required on this extremely steep site. Piles were then installed through 22m of fill and socketed into the bedrock below. A combination of post tensioned flat slabs for the parking grid and longer span coffer slabs for the retail grid were chosen.
