Sydney Opera House Site Entry
This project involved precinct upgrade works to the entry of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Sydney Opera House, from Macquarie St and East Circular Quay.
The Australian Heritage Landmark is now present of enhanced security after 28 weeks of construction, including 22,000 hours worked to complete the security upgrades, with heritage upgrades also undertaken to the existing balustrades.
Over 540m2 of repaving was laid further to the installation of 50 PAS68 rated bronze bollards, including seven with a removable design to the site entry. 30 wall panels were installed for the construction of the new 1:20 ramp and 1:9 ramp for the improved mobility access. Both ramps were finished with LED light strips to illuminate the entrance of an evening.
The precinct upgrade works under Monumental Steps saw 1,700m2 of repaving laid in an Architectural Fan Pattern in addition to the installation of 100 precast floor panels.
30 metres of new brass slot drains and 19 metres of new brass grated drains were also installed, with additional works including 60 metres of services trenches and tie beam remediation works.
These works were completed within a live environment amongst one of the busiest pedestrian precincts in Sydney. Works were completed during normal hours with the addition of night works and weekend works on Saturdays, with no impact to surrounding businesses, nearby residents or the entrance of the Sydney Opera House.
