Helensvale, with an estimated population growth rate of just over 5% per annum is one of the fastest growing regions in South East Queensland. In anticipation of this sustained growth, Westfield in October 2005 opened an integrated shopping town centre and street precinct with over 160 stores to serve Helensvale’s growing and diverse community.
Project Design Brief
The shopping centre comprises over 40,000 sq metres of leasable area, parking for more than 2000 cars and a mix of both landscaped and hardstand highly trafficked concrete areas.
To drain the site’s large pavements, PowerDrain S300K was installed.
- Ensures a high volume of rainwater is quickly removed during heavy storms with minimal interference to Westfield’s customers.
- The drain also provided a barrier so that runoff would not flow across the site’s adjoining roads.
