Caddens Rise Hilltop Park

“Delivering high creativity with high confidence”

Executive Summary

Caddens Rise is home to around 1,000 people near Penrith in Sydney’s west. Following a select tender process, UrbanGrowth NSW appointed Fleetwood Urban to collaborate with award-winning public artists Milne & Stonehouse to create an imaginative new public art shelter at Hilltop Park overlooking the fast-growing community. Fleetwood was selected based on price competitiveness as well as our proven track record in delivering creative public art projects. We had also successfully completed an earlier project for UrbanGrowth NSW at Caddens Rise, giving the confidence we could deliver once again. Which we did.

Fleetwood involvement

The success of the project relied on close collaboration between Fleetwood, the developer and the public artists, Milne & Stonehouse. Our DesignExecute2™ delivery model provided the perfect platform to manage the entire process, from reworking the original concept designs for the shade shelter to the build and final installation. To construct the shade shelter, we drew on our extensive knowledge of the latest materials available which included a mild steel main support structure with a micaceous iron oxide finish, laser cut aluminium cover plates, changeable decorative aluminium cover panels and powder coated aluminium roof sheets. To install the shelter and reduce time on site, it was first assembled in two parts in our manufacturing facility and transported to site as a wide load and craned in as two lifts.
