The Showcase on the Beach shopping centre at Coolangatta on the Gold Coast has now reached the construction stage of its $60 million upgrade. MDA Consulting Engineers have been engaged by Amisco to provide the electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, lift and fire protection design engineering services.
Opening later this year, the revitalized centre will house numerous boutique stores, a Woolworths, the newly relocated Gold Coast City Library and a host of new restaurants and cafes. The internal food court area will have uninterrupted views out over the beach through the glass façade while the entrances from Griffith Street will also receive a facelift. The renovation is expected to attract an increased number of tourists to the area as well as creating 200 jobs in retail and hospitality upon completion.
