Toowoomba and the Darling Downs region have experienced sustained growth over the past five years, with the boom in industry and infrastructure in the area. The growth has seen a consistent climb in population, resulting in increased investment in property and development. Consequently, there has been a demand for more comprehensive retail facilities to cater for the growing market. The owner of the Gardentown Shopping Centre, QIC, decided to grow and expand the existing centre as well as to develop Grand Central to become the main shopping precinct for the area.
QIC contracted Probuild to deliver the $300m project which included a centre extension and full refurbishment of the existing facility. Due to the nature of the upgrade, Probuild required the existing ‘Gardentown’ signage to be removed and the manufacture and installation of new ‘Grand Central’ and retailers brand signage. Probuild required a signage provider that could offer a complete solution from removal of the old signage, to the fabrication, manufacture and installation of the new.
The project required careful planning and development with the removal and replacement of existing signs and the addition of new signs for the extension, including internal and external installations. Our expert team customised and delivered a number of signs, including;
CV Media & Signage’s full production team was required to pull out all stops for this large-scale delivery, given the very tight lead times. Our signage teams from metal fabrication, router, acrylic fabrication, paint, vinyl, assembly and dispatch all did their bit to ensure on time and on spec delivery of the signage.
As a high profile signature project for the town, QIC and Probuild wanted to ensure the signage complemented the new look and feel for the upgrade. Feedback from both QIC and Probuild was very positive and the new centre is trading well.
