Project: Curtis Road Retail Precinct | Client: Commercial & General | Duration: 8 months
Tandem were exceptional in the roll-out of this large master-planned project. This was a key project to support this region and Tandem successfully managed a wide range of stakeholder groups. Tandem’s ability to think one step ahead made sure the end to end project process ran smoothly, on time and within budget.

This retail precinct delivered by Tandem Building Group sits on a key gateway site to the State Government’s $1 billion Playford Alive project in Northern Adelaide. Therefore it had to meet varied requirements and objectives not usually seen with a site of this nature, including strict masterplanned design encumbrances as well as specific Council requirements. A minimum three-storey height requirement to the gateway was stipulated, which was achieved through a two storey design with parapet height to 10 metres. This pre-committed development was subsequently sold to investors by Commercial & General and is a strong example of how this model can be successfully implemented. Planning approval was achieved within one month in order to meet tight development timeframes. The site incorporates a health and wellbeing precinct, with a physiotherapist, fitness centre and dentist all on site as well as a key regional clinic for Benson Radiology. A KFC outlet is also part of the precinct. Whilst Tandem did not build this facility, it is one of the first in Australia to maintain a strict high-street façade to suit masterplan and Council requirements as well as strict KFC design guidelines.
