As Victoria’s first hotel above a shopping centre, Sage Hotel in Ringwood is paving the way for future shopping centres.  No longer just facilities of necessity, shopping centres are becoming a one stop destination encompassing entertainment, hospitality, leisure and retail.

The brand new 4.5 Star 120-room hotel and conference facility spans five floors above Eastland Shopping Centre and includes a restaurant, bar, conference and co-working facilities comprising of a boardroom, function room and a co-working space with a capacity of 80 people.

Working closely with the project team to ensure the projects tight program was achieved for an opening in October 2017, ADP delivered early resolution of services design which was completed using REVIT MEP to a high level of detail, thus enabling early procurement of structural steel.

To ensure the façade was the hero of the project, we worked in close collaboration with both the Buchan Group and ACME to ensure the services had a highly integrated design approach to the façade.

Finally, ADP in conjunction with local suppliers assisted in the development of custom plant and equipment to ensure the maximum height of the plant was within the 1200mm roof plant height restriction.
