About the Project

Located in the heart of historic Port Adelaide, the redeveloped Port Adelaide Plaza has grown from 19,000 square metres to over 29,000 square metres. The $133 million redevelopment now features over 60 specialty stores to cater for the local community.


Drafting Solutions were engaged to complete the mechanical services drafting and lead services coordination.


The existing structure, the Port Canal Shopping Centre, was to be utilised as well as new structural elements, which posed unique challenges with services coordination. During construction the tenancy fitouts were evolving as they were leased, which affected the base build mechanical layouts.


Multiple clash reports against the building structure were utilised to ensure a smooth installation on site for all service trades. As the tenancy fitouts were evolving, Drafting Solutions worked closely with the site teams to minimise rework of fabricated ductwork, and to reduce the disruption to the installation of base build ductwork.
