Mt Hagen Supermarket & Industrial Development
Mt Hagen, PNG
Status: Under Construction
The Mt Hagen project is a mixed-use development comprising commercial retail space and commercial office space, the development also incorporates separate warehouses that facilitate commercial retail use. The development will look to exemplify Pacific Palms Property (a Joint venture with Steamships Ltd) and provide high quality commercial space, employing construction techniques appropriate for the region both in context and availability of materials and tradesman. A public interface that is inviting with ease of access and parking will be key to the success of the commercial retail facilities, the office and warehouse spaces that don’t rely as heavily on the public interface will need to be kept secure while maintaining an edge that is inviting and easily identifiable.
The development of this site and its interaction/contribution to the existing pedestrian and vehicular movement is an important consideration. Collaboration with Local Authority will ensure that the strategy for the site and surrounding area are supported. Consideration of the wider community will help to embed the project within its context ensuring the success of the development. Glen Petersen Architect in conjunction with Peddle Thorp Architect PNG were commissioned to undertake full design, documentation services and oversee the construction.
