Mainbrace completes David Jones Elizabeth Street flagship

Click here to watch a short video capturing the journey Mainbrace Constructions took to deliver David Jones’ vision to build the greatest department store in the southern hemisphere.

There are some projects that will forever leave their mark on a business and the iconic David Jones Elizabeth Street, Sydney is one for Mainbrace. Work on this major $200m heritage refurbishment in Sydney’s CBD took over two years. Mainbrace recently handed over the site ready to trade for another hundred years.

Mainbrace is well known for its expertise in operating safely in live, busy environments. Keeping this store open for trade throughout the two-year journey is a testament to the team’s diligence and, importantly, their understanding of retail. Over the 770+ days on site, the team completed 5000+ site inductions which shows just how many people were involved in delivering this 11-level project.

Mainbrace is extremely proud of the high-quality finish that the whole team delivered. It is a true reflection of their retail expertise, collaborative approach and easy to deal with culture they bring to each and every project.
