Double Bay Woolworths
Fabcot and Woollahra Council
Double Bay, New South Wales, Australia
Woolworths at Double Bay is part of the Kiaora Lands Redevelopment, a joint venture between Woolworths and Woollahra Council. The redevelopment includes a Woolworths supermarket, Dan Murphy’s liquor store, Thomas Dux green grocer, About Life natural market place and four food outlets. There is also a Good Start Early learning centre.
The two-storey structure includes underground parking, Level 1 retail facilities and rooftop parking. Calibre provided structural design, as well as civil design of storm-water drainage and road design.
The structural design incorporated extensive glazing supported by structural steel which was engineered to achieve three-hour fire resistance without insulation or intumescent paint. The site presented challenging ground conditions and is affected by flooding. As a result, the parking level was designed as an overland flow path.
