The Project

Orion Springfield Central is located in Brisbane’s fast growing south-western corridor. It was redeveloped in 2016, doubling in size from 37,175sqm to 68,720sqm. It’s now one of the top ten biggest shopping centres in Queensland.

Hydro Construction Products worked with Mirvac Builders to help deliver this $154 million expansion. The goal was to re-energise Greater Springfield with food, fashion, and entertainment. Orion now supports 198 retailers, a new 2000-seat cinema, over 3,000 car parks, and caters to 6.5 million customers every year.

The Solution

The Hydro team provided AC3000 polymer concrete channels and ductile iron grating from our Hydro Supreme range. This heavy duty drainage system was used on Main Street, Springfield Central. This was the ideal drainage solution due to its centre lock down access, load class, ktl coating, and ability to drain road and stormwater quickly.

With the help of Mainbrace Constructions and Planet Plumbing, Hydro delivered a heelguard and slip-resistant stainless steel drainage system for Orion’s iconic water fountain. This product was fully custom-made to meet the curved design requirements. With plenty of families and children about, Hydro Stainless ensures that the fountain and surrounding areas are pedestrian friendly, aesthetically appealing, practical and safe.
