“Industrial heritage meets urban future on the edge of Sydney Harbour”
Since the mid-1990s Pyrmont has undergone a stunning transformation, from heavy industry to sought-after residential address, just 2km from the Sydney CBD. Fleetwood was contracted by the project lead, Lendlease, to deliver a series of new structures at The Knoll, part of the prestigious redevelopment of the Jacksons Landing site. From rock anchoring, vehicle-accessible cliff ramps and public art elements through to landscaping and lighting, we embraced the challenges of the waterfront development, helping to create inspired outdoor spaces for Jacksons Landing residents to enjoy for many years to come.
Scope of Work
Deliver, Detail, Develop, Discover
The project called upon Fleetwood’s wide-ranging experience in planning, design, construction and installation. One of the key tasks was to deliver the access ramp on the knoll cliff face for the general public as well as maintenance vehicles. This required detailed surveying to determine the most suitable foundation/connection points for the structurally-critical rock anchoring. The ramp was then constructed off site by Fleetwood and installed using multiple cranes. Smaller crawler cranes were also used to install the Knoll Remnants, public artworks designed by JMD Design. We took their designs forward through engineering and completed the installation with structural and soft landscaping elements including precast concrete, steel and timber. Fleetwood was also responsible for managing the lighting infrastructure and the landscaping of the site.
Knoll Park is a robust, yet finely detailed and high quality open space which is successful. Lend Lease is extremely happy with the outcome we could achieve in partnership with Fleetwood Urban on this project.
