This station forms part of the City and Southwest Metro rail infrastructure. The station is placed in the heart of Crows Nest, which will transform this currently sleepy suburb. The station will have entries of both the pacific highway and Hume street. The station is to be designed to support an oversite development of a 17-storey residential and 27-storey commercial building.
Robert Bird group teamed up with SMEC, Woods Bagot and NDY to form the Crows Nest Design Consortium (CNDC) to think of an innovative way to deliver the station with a value adding oversite development, while de-risking the handover of the station platform and rail corridor to Sydney Metro for train commissioning.
During the tender, RBG’s innovative holistic project concept approach completely changed the OSD offering and also removed over 7 months from the construction programme. RBG also used our construction engineering and visualization capabilities to clearly demonstrate our vision to Sydney Metro, allowing the CNDC design consortium to become the stage 2 and 3 designers for this key station design.
RBG completed all structural, Construction engineering and civil station interface works. This project was the first of all city stations to receive NAC approval and is about to begin construction. RBG were able to work pro-actively with the Sydney Metro Subject matter experts to close out all design and SWTC comments without any programme delays.
