Arcadis to advise on Central Precinct Renewal Program
Transport for NSW has appointed Arcadis, a global design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets, as Engineering Services Technical Advisor to provide engineering design solutions in relation to the Central Precinct Renewal Program — a major urban renewal program to expand Sydney’s southern CBD (south Central Sydney) and create a new place for business and the community by renewing 24 ha of government-owned land.
The program seeks to 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 should provide 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.
Arcadis will now be part of a team, assembled by Transport for NSW, with the depth of knowledge, experience and expertise required to help transform Central Precinct into an iconic global precinct. The company’s collaborative approach in delivering recent Sydney Metro projects, such as the Underground Station Design and Technical Services package on City & Southwest, will likely be key to successfully delivering the optioneering and technical advisory services required for the Central Precinct Renewal Program.
“Arcadis was selected as the Engineering Services Technical Advisor for Central Precinct Renewal Program,” said Lindsay Baker, Senior Project Manager – Engineering for the Central Precinct Renewal Program. “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 will be supported by engineering company Thornton Tomasetti — which has previously provided engineering and construction services for the rail deck and over station structures for Hudan Yards in New York — as well as business management consultant Indec, which has extensive knowledge of rail operations within the Sydney area.
“Arcadis is now working in a collaborative team with Transport for NSW in the delivery of this city-shaping project,” Baker said.
