Sydney Water Headquarters

Parramatta NSW

This $110 million commercial building is comprised of 30,000m2 of A-grade commercial space over 18 levels, and five levels of basement car parking and associated plant rooms.
This development also features a podium level that integrates into the future Parramatta Civic Place precinct and has a 5-Star Green Star rating, with the ability to upgrade to 6-Star.

  • Robert Bird Group was able to optimise construction cycle times via innovative use of in-situ concrete and precast frames.
  • Robert Bird Group designed a “hanging” podium structure using steel columns, to create a column-free ground floor lobby space.
  • RBG assisted in re-planning the basement car park to achieve greater structural and planning efficiencies, and eliminated an entire transfer level.
  • RBG’s design makes future provision for tunnel access to Civic Place.
  • Efficient post-tensioned concrete banded floors saved construction cost and time.
  • A16-metre high external colonnade serves as the architectural feature for the public external space.
