David Jones, Wellington, New Zealand
Client: David Jones PTY Ltd
Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying
This world class retail store is the first international outlet for David Jones. Located in the former Kirkcaldie and Stains on Wellington’s Lambton Quay, this complete transformation over three floors and retention of the existing heritage façade provides a new level of retail luxury and an enhanced shopping experience.
The new 6,600 square-metre fit-out incorporates retail space, changing rooms, a cafe and service facilities.
Particular care was taken with the heritage-listed façade, which is the only part of the original building that was retained in the 1980’s during the construction of the two office towers above.
The project was completed within a tight timeframe, with the store opening in 2016.
RLB provided cost management and quantity surveying services.
