Testimonials

"Aurecon worked closely with MPA in an ECI engagement for the major Heinemann works at Sydney International Airport. The challenges associated with complex staging works and site constraints were very well managed. The MPA team was able to de-risk latent conditions and procurement issues and resolve with the design team and client in a professional manner. The final product looks fantastic, a great outcome for the client."

A New Era in Childcare

Childcare and early learning centres are attracting an increasing number of investors due to high demand and strong government support for the sector. The Australian Government is committed to making childcare more accessible, with plans to invest an additional $3.5 billion over five years in childcare assistance. As the population continues to grow, high demand and lengthy waiting lists are driving the need for professional childcare facilities across the country. MPA looks forward to assisting more childcare providers in creating vibrant and interactive spaces for children to learn and play. MPA was recently recognised in an article by the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, a great feat for the team. “Creating this special place for children has been a matter of heart for everyone involved – Team FROEBEL Australia, our fantastic and incredibly creative architects Silvester Fuller and our diligent builder MPA Projects” says Caroline Koch, HR & Office Coordinator at FROEBEL.

The project entailed four levels of play and learning spaces, a workplace for early childhood teachers and educators and contemporary communal spaces for families and guests. Highlights included: Themed, custom-built wooden Activity Pods Climbing walls, swinging ropes and climbing equipment A 4.5m long LEGO wall A semi-open kitchen with theatre for child participation in cooking and baking activities “It was an absolute pleasure working with the MPA team. They understood and embraced our design intent and joined us on our mission of delivering an early learning centre that sets a new benchmark for the sector. We demanded a high level of attention to detail, and it was the willingness of the MPA team to go the extra mile that made the difference in the end.” Olde Lorenzen, Managing Director, FROEBEL Goodstart Early Learning The MPA team created a new, interactive 1,100m2 centre in Double Bay with an open outdoor space. Even with budget constraints and client changes throughout the project, MPA delivered the space on time and within budget, assisting with value engineering and design resolution to address any potential issues. Highlights included: A 100m2 sandpit with three timber decks and sandstone features Climbing trees and an interactive play zone A state of the art commercial kitchen Numerous transitioning floor finishes “MPA did a wonderful job on the Goodstart Early Learning Centre in Double Bay. The team worked well with both the client and design teams, and took a proactive approach, always able to resolve site and technical problems.” Tuyet – Anh Le, Manager of Projects – Property, Goodstart Early Learning Explore & Develop Childcare Tasked with the refurbishment of the three level centre at 15 Castlereagh Street, MPA ensured the client’s design came to life, with different wings tailored to specific age groups.

Best In Class: The Heinemann Project

One of MPA’s largest projects to date, The Heinemann Project at Sydney Airport entails the refurbishment and expansion of 9000m2 and a $30M budget across six development stages. The goal is to create the world’s biggest stand-alone airport duty free store, which will include a premium spirits lounge, regional wine section, tasting bar, men and women’s products section, gifts section, cosmetics and fashion area and a playground for children. To date, four stages of the project have been completed, seeing the latest Mega B duty free store opening in September at the Terminal 1 Departures. Wider pathways, direct paths and clearer signage have been added as well as uniquely Australian aspects of design like metal Jacaranda trees. Feature ceilings and Terrazzo tiles were also a major highlight of the design. The installation of the specialist beauty brands in store had to be carefully coordinated so the team could create the space for the brands and have the necessary people come in to fit it out according to their requirements. 24-hour rolling shifts were required to complete the project in the compressed 10-week timeline so Heinemann could trade out of the store as per the completion date. No easy task considering the difficult airport environment, but MPA’s team finished the project without setback. Some challenges with the project included working around the airport’s base building works happening at the same time. The MPA team had to collaborate and incorporate these works into their project. Additionally, installation of items such as the ceilings and tiles were staggered so other items could be installed simultaneously. Everything considered, the project went off without delay. Dan Jourdan, Head of Retail Design & Construction for Heinemann Australia says about the project “MPA acted as Head Contractor on Heinemann Australia’s construction of the largest airport duty-free store in the world, at Sydney International Airport. The project ran to a tight timeline in a very restricted and demanding airport environment, involving many night shifts to take advantage of the strict curfew hours imposed by the airport. As well as MPA’s own works, they also had to coordinate the installation of many different retail brands. All phases of the project have opened on time, and the finished product looks amazing. MPA’s approach was always one of professionalism and dedication to the project; their on-site staff and the office support they relied upon were always highly dependable. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any other large-scale retail projects.” To know more about the entire refurbishment, contact Matthew Jones, Director- Projects Division. enquiry@mpa.com.au (02) 8202 7300
