Mango Hill Marketplace, a new Brisbane shopping centre, functions well with Transitions Honed Concrete

Mango Hill Marketplace in Brisbane with Transitions Honed ConcreteProject Background

Mango Hill Marketplace is a new shopping centre development in North Lakes, Brisbane. Set to be the largest convenience based shopping centre in the locality and on the future main access road to Mango Hill train station, Mango Hill Marketplace is destined to be a high traffic commercial hub.

Transitions were contracted to complete works on all external walkway areas around the perimeter of the shopping centre and a small area in the basement car park. 


External areas:

  • Transitions Honed Concrete
  • 3/4 Grind
  • 80 grit diamond
  • R11

Basement carpark:

  • Transitions Stained Concrete


  • 2,000m2


The client had a set aim for the external pathways of the shopping centre in terms of achieving an appealing decorative finish whilst fulfilling functional requirements for the concrete floors performance.


The external concrete floor of the shopping centre at Mango Hill was required to be a low maintenance and easy to clean option. The concrete floor must perform to be a functional external finish, with an R11 slip rating, most importantly on the access ramps. Furthermore, the client wanted to achieve a concrete finish that would be extremely durable and hard wearing given the high amount of foot and trolley traffic the shopping centre is expected to generate.

Chosen Product

Transitions Honed Concrete was chosen as the external flooring product for Mango Hill Marketplace based on it's ability to fulfil all of the clients needs for this project. Not only was the honed concrete able to functionally tick all the boxes but it resulted in a high end looking floor that will stand the test of time.

Overall Outcome

The result of the Transitions Honed Concrete floor at Mango Hill Marketplace is great! The client was extremely happy with the quality of the floor produced by the Transitions team and the decorative finish to the concrete floor really uplifts the overall appearance of the external facade. Not only does this floor look great now but it will continue to do so for many years to come.
