Parramatta Justice

Client: Multiplex Developments
Architect: Bates Smart / Lyons
Status: Complete

In August 2005 the Commerce Department awarded the rights to design, build and manage the Parramatta Justice Precinct to Multiplex and its bid consortium, including enstruct.  The redevelopment of this key site included a new children's court, trial court, attorney generals building, as well as the redevelopment of the existing Parramatta Hospital (Jeffery House). The site which fronts the Parramatta River covers an entire city block. The project provided a number of engineering challenges, including construction of a three level basement below the ground water table, extensive utilisation of load bearing precast concrete and structural upgrading of the hospital building. This work has been carried out in parallel with an extensive site archaeological study and to a demanding programme.
