Barangaroo Reserve has been named Project of the Year at Infrastructure Partnership Australia’s (IPA) prestigious National Infrastructure Awards, amongst hundreds of entrants. 

Located along Sydney’s famous waterfront, Barangaroo Reserve serves as a landmark project that collides building, bridge and landscape design to arrive at an impressive, multi-use destination featuring a public reserve. The iconic community project was acknowledged for its world first engineering feats, complexity, creativity and deep commitment to sustainability.

Aurecon fulfilled the role of lead design consultant for civil and marine works and provided structural engineering, civil engineering, 3D modelling, project management, materials engineering, and temporary works and geotechnical services.

The redevelopment, managed by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority for the NSW Government, saw a derelict container wharf transformed into a reimagined Sydney Harbour headland park, complete with a 75 000 cubic metre sub-terrain space (The Cutaway), and a natural looking foreshore. 

For Sydney residents, Barangaroo is now the perfect place to host community events, cycle, walk, and take in spectacular harbour views.

Aurecon Technical Director, Ken O’Neill, who worked on the project from conception to completion said: “I feel so proud of what the team who delivered this project has achieved. Everyone worked together to create a magical place for the community to enjoy forever.”
