MCHP Architects transforming Mobil to 7-Eleven in NSW and ACT – October 2010

MCHP Architects have been contracted by 7-Eleven Stores to provide architectural services for the significant redevelopment of more than 100 Mobil Oil sites, becoming 7 Eleven facilities within 12 months.

The volume of the redevelopment project and the very tight programme has seen MCHP Architects create a project team of management staff, long standing permanent staff and contractors to form a talented team experienced in meeting the demands of this significant project roll out. MCHP Architects offer significant experience in the fuel and retail industry and in the roll out of large volume projects under tight timeframes without compromising on project quality.

MCHP Architects are undertaking site audits, collating the details of the existing facilities and documenting the existing facilities then preparing the architectural working documentation for construction works.

7-Eleven Stores will become the largest independent fuel retailer in Australia after the purchase of 295 petrol stations from Mobil Oil Australia. The sites would be significantly upgraded and transformed to the 7-Eleven product and image and the Mobil stores are to be converted by the end of 2011. The sites will still have fuel supplied by Mobil. The acquisition created a merged entity with projected sales or more than $2.84 billion serving more than 160 million transactions each year. 7-Eleven Stores, which is a family-owned business, will increase its stores from 400 to more than 650.

In a Sydney Morning Herald article, 27 May 2010, 7-Eleven Stores Chief Executive Officer Mr Warren Wilmot was quoted, “The acquired sites are well-positioned with strong fuel and food store volume, bringing excellent synergies with 7-Eleven’s current operations.”

7-Eleven Stores have been a client of MCHP Architects for over 10 years and we are proud to be part of the development of their company, working with them on over 200 projects in NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland.
