Transport for NSW has appointed a leading global firm as Engineering Services Technical Advisor to provide engineering design solutions in relation to the Central Precinct Renewal Program.
Arcadis, a leading global design and consultancy firm a leading for natural and built assets, was appointed to the role.
The Central Precinct Renewal is a major urban renewal program in one of Sydney’s most connected sites.
Central Precinct provides an exceptional opportunity to expand Sydney’s southern CBD (known as south Central Sydney) and create new place for business and the community by renewing 24 hectares of government-owned land.
It will provide a revitalised transport interchange, building on the existing rail, bus, coach and light rail connections, the new CBD and South East Light Rail and Sydney Metro.
Links across the rail corridor and new public spaces will provide important connections between business, education, health and cultural institutions, fostering collaboration and innovation.
Critical employment space will also be created for the jobs of the future, anchoring the proposed Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct.
Transport for NSW has assembled a world-class team with depth of knowledge, experience and expertise required to partner with them and deliver on this vision and transform Central Precinct into an iconic global precinct.
Lindsay Baker, Senior Project Manager – Engineering | Central Precinct Renewal Program, said Arcadis was able to bring relevant experience and expertise from projects around the world through key individuals from those projects that will be working on Central Precinct.
“Arcadis is now working in a collaborative team with Transport for NSW in the delivery of this city-shaping project,” Ms Baker said.
Arcadis’ collaborative approach in delivering recent Sydney Metro projects, such as the Underground Station Design and Technical Services package on City & Southwest, will be key to successfully delivering the optioneering and technical advisory services required for Central Precinct Renewal.
Arcadis will be supported by Thornton Tomasetti, who have previously provided engineering and construction services for the rail deck and over station structures for Hudan Yards in New York, as well as Indec who have extensive knowledge of rail operations within the Sydney area.
