Craigieburn Central Victoria
The shopping centre represented a large green field retail development comprising of separate retail precincts culminating into the Town Centre concept. The centre includes Woolworths, Aldi and Coles supermarkets and major retailers Big W and Target and 160 specialty stores; and a cinema. The centre is approximately 50,000 sq m and the design includes four distinct colour-coded precincts with each of the quadrants leading to a town square, or central meeting point.
Main Street runs through the middle of Craigieburn Central with banking, medical and retail services.
The fire safety engineering strategy was developed with a focus towards optimising the open plan nature of the centre and balancing modern retail and life safety objectives. The fire safety risk engineering approach was applied to a number of issues including: rationalisation of egress provisions; detailed smoke hazard management systems supported by comprehensive modelling justification, rationalisation of fire ratings and a centralised approach to fire services intervention activities.
