03 Mar Creating and delivering new spaces at Westfield Newmarket
It’s a pretty amazing feeling to walk around the new Westfield Newmarket these days and know how much of an impact Datum had on making it happen. With over a dozen stores fitted out by the Datum team, there’s signs of us everywhere. From Country Road to Laser Clinics, Forever New to Red Rabbit Café, Bird on a Wire to OPSM and more – our team have had a bit of fun everywhere!
Perhaps the most impressive thing about our work at Westfield Newmarket was that we not only managed to finish on-time – we actually finished early.
When we hit the finish line on our projects, we should have been sitting back with a beer and congratulating ourselves. Instead, every department rolled up their sleeves and helped another shopfitter to finish their stores as well. When you’ve got multiple stores to deliver and a fast approaching deadline, it pays to work together. Thanks to the selflessness, quick thinking and hard work shown by the Datum crew, we were able to deliver all stores to the landlord on time for a seamless opening. Despite the odd 3am finish, it was all worth it!
Westfield Newmarket is now well and truly open, and it’s great to reflect on what was a stressful but rewarding project. Knowing how much of our ideas and effort went into creating New Zealand’s newest mall is a pretty great feeling – and we’re super proud to have been involved.
