The national portfolio of centres are expected to be open by early 2019.
Home Consortium at Marsden Park is one of the many sites where BSE has provided mechanical engineering services for the national rollout. The Marsden Park centre has a total size of approximately 13,000m² and 8 tenancies. Some of the retailers at the Marsden Park centre include Pet Barn, Nick Scali, Rebel Sport, Bing Lee, Toys ‘R’ Us and Babies ‘R’ Us.
BSE’s role at Marsden Park encompasses a collaboration with Fusion HVAC to provide an innovative solution for air conditioning and smoke exhaust ventilation.
