Burwood Brickworks

Burwood Brickworks, a world leading retail space, exemplary architecture and living spaces, and expansive lush green public spaces combine to make this community-focused precinct one of the best in the world.

Overview

Burwood Brickworks, consisting of retail and commercial development, high rise apartments, wetlands/village green, civil subdivision, and medium density subdivisions. 

Scope

Rokon were initially engaged to complete the infrastructure to service the retail and commercial precinct of Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre, consisting of greenfield and brownfield works of 3x VicRoads intersections, 10m tall shotcrete and soil nail retaining wall, apartment basement excavation, relocation of authority assets, and new service construction. 

We have since been engaged to complete the first stages of Burwood Brickworks residential and mixed usedevelopment where our works have recently been completed on Stage 6 & 7 readiness for Frasers Property to commence construction.

Rokon are now constructing the Village Green recreational area which covers an area approx. 1 ha in area with construction of drainage, ornamental concrete pond and retaining walls.

Outcome 

Burwood Brickworks - Winner of Property Council Australia's 2021 VIC State Development of the Year – the industry’s most prestigious award for state-wide projects. Earlier this year, Burwood Brickworks also achieved the Living Building Challenge® Petal Certification – the first retail development in the world to do so, and officially making it the world’s most sustainable shopping centre.

Rokon are proud to be a project partner in the development of Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre, helping Frasers Property Australia create solid foundations for the delivery of this project.

Rokon coordinated works around the commercial / retail builder and assisted with gaining access for other trades as required, our team were always aware of not only their own program time frames but also of others, so they facilitated a whole of project team environment to prevent any delays to the sustainable development. Brownfield works often present many design and construability issues, we worked closely with designers, authorities, and our client to ensure the most cost effective and timely outcome were achieved, at all times demonstrating a willingness to work to the best outcome for all, not just for Rokon. 

Now constructing the Village Green, recreational area after completing Stages 6 & 7 of the Burwood Brickworks Residential development the project team have enjoyed the diversity of this project and look forward to further work with Frasers Property Australia.
