Greenland Centre


Robert Bird Group has been commissioned by the developer of this prestigious residential tower in the Sydney CBD to provide construction methodology, demolition works sequencing, and temporary works engineering services for the project. The unique engineering challenges that RBG will solve include the temporary retention of an existing 26-level-tall structural steel frame, whilst the existing façade and floors are demolished.

RBG worked with the contractor to develop a detailed demolition and reconstruction sequence which adequately addressed the site access, limitations of the capacity of the existing 50-year-old structure and coordination of any temporary works with permanent works.

RBG will also provide shoring and retention design for the existing basement, and underpinning and stabilizing works design for the existing tower whilst new foundations up to 5 metres deep are constructed to support the 67-level permanent works. Basement retention included an interface with the future Sydney Metro rail corridor on Pitt Street.
