David Jones re-entered the Western Australian marketplace with the creation of a flagship store in the state. David Jones is one of Australia’s largest department stores, and the oldest department store in the world still trading under its original name.

GHD Woodhead was engaged in a joint venture with MacCormac Architects, to create 22,000 sqm of new refurbished space in the Perth central business district. The Perth department store features the latest innovative retail designs.

Staging was developed to allow the new extension and central escalator void to be completed first and to commence operation while the existing east section was refurbished.
