Cockle Bay Wharf

Client: GPT / Brookfield / AMP
Architect: FJMT
Status: In Design

enstruct has been commissioned to assist with the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement in response to the Secretary's Environmental Assessment Requirements for the Cockle Bay Wharf Development which consists of a high rise commercial tower and podium, a bridge over the Western Distributor and a pedestrian connection with Darling Park and the city. The site is challenged by its proximity to the harbour with a geology whose competent rock stratum falls sharply westwards to the harbour. The scope includes structural, civil, roads, stormwater and geotechnical engineering.

Our focus has been to develop a viable construction methodology with systems which address site construction challenges: construction traffic access, building over water, building over the Western Distributor, achieving a conventional and efficient Sydney CBD construction sequence. A rigorous review of the capacity of the existing building structure on the site was undertaken, as well as a detailed geometrical modelling of the western distributor layout in order to prove viable bridging methods.
