The reconstruction of a naturalistic headland, which incorporates s parkland, an underground performance space and more at Sydney’s Barangaroo Reserve has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the 2016 National Infrastructure Awards.
The awards, convened annually by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia (IPA), recognises the leaders and top infrastructure projects across the nation.
The awards judges deemed the Barangaroo headland park as the Project of the Year because of its uniqueness and the due to the face it has already significant community support.
“The Project of the Year award is more usually awarded to the mega projects, like tunnels, ports and toll ways, but the independent judges selected Barangaroo precisely because it is different and unique,” says CEO of IPA Brendan Lynch.
“Barangaroo’s headland park is a major feat of engineering in its own right and has rightly won local support and global acclaim.”
The construction of the $250 million project involved Advisian, Aurecon, Barangaroo Delivery Authority, Lendlease and WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, all of which were recognised by the award.
