Contractors QMC Group have been appointed to complete the $2.5 million City Square revitalisation project, which is funded through a Special Rate, paid by property owners in the Coffs CBD.
The revitalisation project is one of the key projects identified in the Coffs City Centre Masterplan 2031.
Key elements of the City Square project include: CCTV security, contemporary lighting, event power supplies, new paving, 13 large cafe umbrellas to replace the existing arbours, new public seating, communal tables for shared dining experiences, raised Shared Zone on Park Avenue Lane to improve pedestrian safety, timber-look stamped concrete paving and upgrades to the western kiosk.The eastern kiosk is to be removed in the latter stages of the project.
QMC Group was appointed to start work on the project in March 2019 and it is expected that the project will be completed in August this year.
The Sydney-based QMC Group has completed numerous projects similar to the City Square upgrade and has significant experience in working with businesses throughout construction.
Works will be completed in stages, to minimise impacts and to maintain business access. Coffs Coast Growers Markets will be temporarily relocated along Harbour Drive footpaths as required.
City Square designs were finalised last year, following extensive consultations with property owners, traders and the wider community.
