K Mart has been undergoing a refurbishment of their store throughout Australia over the past three years. It has been proven by K Mart that a contemporary shopfront presentation directly correlates to high customer volumes and sales.
In Queensland, Mirage Doors has forged a positive relation with Samways Building & Construction to help K Mart achieve their objectives.
The most recent upgrade completion was in Mackay in North Queensland, where a single Series 3 roller shutter was used to span two opening bays. This replaced 30 year old counterweight doors. Wideview ventilation slots were added to optimise air flow capabilities. All work was completed after hours in one night, without disruption to existing trade.
The Mackay project was the 26th fitout between Samways and Mirage Doors Qld. in the past three years.
In Australia suburban shopping centres are regularly built in new population areas, and existing shopping centres are regularly upgraded to retain local loyalty. These centres are usually anchored by Coles and / or Woolworths.
Mirage Doors has been continuously involved in these projects over its’ 51 year operating history. We have a high level of commitment and involvement with architects and builders alike, and develop fit for purpose product outcomes for all stakeholders.
In Queensland Mirage Doors enjoys an exceptional relationship with Hutchinson Builders, and we currently are involved together with the upgrade of the Aspley Village Shopping Centre on Brisbane’s Northside. The scope of work includes adding roller shutters to new and existing tenancies, and providing roller shutters to fire hose reel cabinets for the fire dept. upgrade compliance. Approx. 20 tenancies are being built or refurbished, and Mirage Doors is the prominent provider of shopfront doors on the project.
The LEGO LAND DISCOVERY CENTRE has now opened at Chadstone Shopping centre. This is an Australian first for this type of store providing rides, build and play zones and a 4D cinema.
Mirage doors supplied the two entrance doors as Series 3 Aluminium Roller shutters, in custom Yellow powder coat to match the Lego yellow store colours. These have perforation sections to aid airflow, with solid top and bottom sections to meet smoke baffle requirements.
As part of Eastland shopping centres food court upgrade, Mirage Doors supplied and fitted a series of Fiesta glazed bifold doors to the Fukontontei Ramen Japanese restaurant.
These provided a high class closure with minimal storage requirements as the quality Fiesta product could be left exposed adding to the appearance of the restaurant. The top hung Fiesta product also leave clear floor access without tripping hazards.
McCorkell Constructions contracted Mirage Doors to supply a motorised counterweight door for the Canteen upgrade at Whittlesea Secondary College.
Design considerations required providing clear access to the servery, while managing the weight and alignment of the façade to create the unique finish they required.
