Lendlease’s engineering business managing director Craig Laslett said the award was great recognition for the project’s many engineering firsts.
These included the innovative use of precast concrete bridge beams to create one of the biggest subterranean internal spaces in Australia and the use of a special wire-cutting process to cut caissons four metres under the harbour
“We take great pride in what we have achieved to restore the original headland at Barangaroo for people to enjoy for many years to come,” Mr Laslett said.
“The project team was given an immensely ambitious brief – to design, deconstruct and reconstruct an industrial wasteland to create a new six-hectare park with a naturalistic sandstone foreshore and a subterranean space buried underneath the headland.
“Their outstanding success is testament to the value and creativity that engineers bring to the world.”
