JR Duty Free

The JR Duty Free was an extensive 850m2 refurbishment project that took out the Master Builders Refurbishment/Renovation up to 5 Million award in 2013.

The project was undertaken in an “airside” location of the Cairns International Airport departures terminal. The high level of finishes in the store were reflective of the luxury branding of the JR Duty Free retail chain.

The staged works had to be undertaken in cooperation with several key stakeholders to ensure both uninterrupted operation of the existing store and maintenance of airside security at all times for the airport.

Stakeholders included the client, Australian Federal Police, Australian Customs and airport security and screening. As a result the project included a large component of night works to realise completion.
