Sydney’s Central Station has been recognised as the Sydney Division Project of the Year of the Engineers Australia Excellence Awards.
Under the guidance of John McAslan + Partners, Aurecon, Sydney Metro, Laing O’Rourke, GHD, Woods Bagot, and Atkins, the landmark Sydney central transport hub has been expertly redeveloped, re-imagined and recreated. The novel top-down construction approach led to efficiencies in project implementation in a live rail environment.
The challenges to build the design below an existing and busy live station have been next level, utilising innovative and unconventional approaches. Sustainability and a 6-star design review rating was achieved, resulting in an impressive example of enhancing both the economic and social outcomes.
“Those celebrated exhibit outstanding leadership and show a commitment to the community and the environment.'
Jamie Burrage, Engineers Australia GM Sydney
