One of a kind
Located in one of the most vibrant shopping and entertainment districts in Changsha, the extension of the La Nova shopping mall, was Ivanhoe Cambridge’s first project in China.
With the mall needing to be repositioned on a tight programme schedule in order to be delivered on time and budget, early stage planning as well as detailed risk analysis and management was in order. Gleeds provided project management and cost management on the enhancement of the existing 65,000 sqm retail mall.
Refurbishment of the mall included major structural modifications such as:
• Relocation of all 13 sets of escalators
• Replacement of the whole MEP system
• Extension of the building and replacement of façade
In order for a cinema to be installed on the top floor, Gleeds also provided technical due diligence of the existing building structure, along with rigorous analysis of design models and control of material selection.
The project was completed on budget and finished in time for the grand opening of the mall.
