Sydney International Airport Car Park


This $60 million 8-storey car park is located directly adjacent to the Sydney International Terminal on Arrival Circuit. The car park is a concrete framed structure with an on-grade ground floor level.

The design has allowed for future expansion to 12 levels. The car park floor size is 110m x 110m and contains approximately 2800 car spaces plus valet and retail car space. A cable stay link bridge connects the car park to the terminal (departures) drop zone. The dual-helix internal ramp system provides optimum space efficiency, as well as optimised exit times from the car park.

Features include:

  • Long-span post-tensioned concrete banded floor plates in co-ordination with D&C contractor.
  • Concrete moment frame used to resist lateral horizontal loads, minimizing the requirement for shear walls.
  • Efficient deep-pile system to rock level.
  • A perimeter crash barrier design using tensioned stainless-steel cables anchored into concrete columns, developed in conjunction with the builder and Bifen (specialists).
  • Internal two-lane circulation ramp with continuous grade, eliminating transition zones at each level.
  • Connection of 60m cable stayed bridge to connect frame using concrete nodes, in addition to post-tensioned beams transferring permanent loads to internal steel bracing.
  • Increased capacity of columns, walls, piles and lateral frame to allow future expansion to 12 levels.
