Providing Essential Services During COVID-19
Dec 10, 2020

With Victoria becoming one of the worst-hit areas in Australia for the coronavirus, the QICGRE team has facilitated significant support for the essential services in the community to assist during this time.


Through a partnership with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, QIC converted car parking facilities at Watergardens, Werribee and Epping shopping centres into drive-through COVID-19 testing sites, providing safe and convenient locations for these critical services, with more than 86,000 tests completed across the three locations.

The Global Real Estate team also hosted a series of interactive online workshops for retailers based in our Victorian shopping centre assets, providing practical information and advice on business planning, finance, and managing health and wellbeing, as well as opportunities for small business owners to connect with other retailers for ongoing networking support and connections.

Delivered in consultation with independent retail specialist Retail Capabilities, the workshops were designed to provide businesses with the information and tools required to help leverage available support measures and get them prepared for reopening, with more than 100 retailers participating in the sessions.
