Winner of the Plaisterers Trophy 2004. This is the upgrading of a shopping centre that had become very rundown. The work is largely in plasterboard with some GRG. There was the excellent use of Gyptone as the facing panel of the covings. At the nodes (junctions in the mall) there were suspended ceilings with cut outs & alluring lighting. Part of the ceiling consisted of an egg-shaped dome about 25 metres across. Some 120 casts were required to form the dome; all of the joints are perfectly formed. All of the work was perfectly executed having to make the work & design the suspension methods from concept drawings only.
