This $60 million multistorey car park is located directly adjacent to the Sydney International Terminal on Arrival Circuit. The car park is an 8 storey 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 coordination with contractor D&C.
• 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 was 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.
