News and Events
The latest development stage (6a) at the iconic Westfield Chermside opened on the 6th of April, with Fire Check Consultants once again being heavily involved with the shopping centre development. Fire Check Consultant's Principal Fire safety engineer, Chris Odgers, has been involved with the shopping centre since the Stage 3 development in 1996, cementing a 20 year involvement with the project and Westfield D&C, now known as Scentre Group.
Stage 6a will comprise of over 90 new specialty shops housed within a new mall level above the existing Stage 5 mall. Fire Check Consultants have been involved throughout the Stage 6 development process, all the way through from the early development stage, through to construction. In order to help navigate the difficult aspects of fire, egress and smoke hazard management during construction on a operating shopping centre, Fire Check Consultants were on site during construction holding weekly 'fire meetings' to solve any issues that had arisen.
Once fully complete (Stage 6b to open shortly) Westfield Chermside will be the largest Westfield shopping centre in Australia.

We were honoured to receive the Urban Development Institute of Australia (QLD) award for Consultancy Excellency applied to the newly constructed ‘Link Portside’ residential building at Brisbane’s iconic Hamilton cruise port & shopping precinct. This building is very unique in that it consists of a structural steel frame enveloped by fire rated construction. The need for this unique style of construction was needed to overcome the point load restrictions applied to the existing Portside Wharf structure.
We have successfully completed prestigious Pacific Fair Shopping Centre at Gold Coast.
