The transformation of the old Myer CBD Centre allows the Emporium shopping centre space to house 225 fashion and food brands. The project embraces world-class architecture and construction finesse in order to preserve and restore the buildings heritage-listed façade. With its launch, five of Melbourne’s major retail spaces are connected and almost 2000 shops can be accessed under one roof to Melbourne Central, Myer Melbourne and to David Jones via pedestrian bridges and tunnels. Comprising more than 48,000 square metres of retail space, with a large amount of stairs and escalators, safety was a key consideration and therefore the use of a warning system for these approaching hazards for visually impaired users was a must. The Tactile Ground Surface Indicator’s needed to not only look smart, but needed to meet the NCC and relevant Australian Standard, while maintaining the overall visual appeal and safety of the area.
