There are a huge number of variables in such a question. For one thing, shopping malls are different from all other retail store construction projects because they have a huge number size differences, they do not use the same construction techniques or configurations, and a great deal of variation can appear when site conditions are difficult. For the purpose of this discussion we will look at the development of a tradition structure with partitions for retail stores, finish materials, and some display fronts.
The building of a shopping mall requires an architect or an architectural firm, a team of subcontractors, a knowledgeable contractor, and a cooperative developer/owner to get the job done in a reasonable time frame.
In the United States, the average mall will be sized at approximately 56,212 square feet and will have two-floors, four "anchor" stores, and a length roughly four times greater than its depth.
What is included:
Most owners rely on both an architect and a contractor, and the architect will require approximately 17% of the total building budget;
(56k square feet, 2 floors, four anchor stores, length roughly four times greater than its depth)
