Hinchinbrook Creek

“Celebrating the rustic roots of a prized residential community”

Executive Summary

Elizabeth Hills is a prized residential community in Western Sydney characterised by gentle slopes, meandering creeks and open grassed woodlands. As part of the expansive, rustic-inspired masterplan, Fleetwood was contracted to deliver multiple Access and Shade elements for the site’s developers, Mirvac. The most significant was a 30-metre multi-span pedestrian bridge over Hinchinbrook Creek which we delivered using a variation on our standard Balmoral™ system, customised in collaboration with landscape architects, Sturt Noble Associates.

Fleetwood involvement

Fleetwood was engaged by Mirvac as a collaborative partner in the design and construction of all structural elements at Hinchinbrook Creek, from the early design and Development Approval stages, through to fabrication and final completion on site. Guided by our DesignExecute2™ delivery process, we began by taking the initial bridge concepts from Sturt Noble Associates and transforming them into tangible designs, using one of our standard bridge system as the base, Balmoral™. Once approved by Mirvac, we successfully led the detailing and delivery stages of the 30-metre multi-span bridge, raising the necessary documentation and meeting stringent quality and budget requirements – while always maintaining the aesthetic integrity of the design. In addition to the new bridge, we also collaborated on the design and construction of three expansive boardwalks using our Seascape™ system.
