Woolworths Bundaberg reopens following flooding 121 days after the flooding of the Woolworths Supermarket (Hinkler Central) in Bundaberg, the refurbished and modernised supermarket reopened its doors yesterday.
The flooding, caused by ex-tropical Cyclone Oswald over the Australia Day weekend, inundated the Woolworths store with approximately 560mm of water. The damage required store closure and complete stock removal due to contamination. The flood recovery included extensive demolition leaving only the structural walls, floors and roof and full fit out of the store.
One of the greatest challenges our team faced during this project was the mobilisation of project staff and equipment to a declared natural disaster zone. Construction works were fast-tracked in order to meet the Hinkler Central reopening deadline.
We thank all project parties for the close cooperation, understanding and open communication, which ensured the successful delivery of this challenging project.
