The Green Square Aquatic Centre and Gunyama Park in Sydney has been designed jointly by UK architect Grimshaw and Australia’s Andrew Burges Architects.
The aquatic centre – the largest of its kind to be built in Sydney since the 2000 Olympics – will feature a 50m outdoor pool, indoor pools and gym, all set within a park with play equipment, boardwalk and native landscaping.
Turner & Townsend will provide comprehensive cost management advice to the city of Sydney and its stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle.
The project will provide a leisure and fitness complex at the heart of the transformed Green Square - a neighbourhood that will eventually be home to 54,000 residents and the workplace for 22,000 people.
Turner & Townsend director Euan Bell said: “The Green Square Aquatic Centre and Gunyama Park is an iconic project in Sydney’s property and leisure sectors, and also in the wider context of the ongoing urban renewal of Green Square.
“We fully understand and appreciate the strategic importance of the development in relation to the new Green Square community and we will work closely with Council to ensure that the facility delivers.”
City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore added: “Green Square is Australia’s biggest urban development and one of Sydney’s fastest growing and most exciting new communities.
“With 40,000 residents and 22,000 workers on the way, the city is moving ahead with the construction of new community facilities. Our new aquatic centre, parks and library will be at the heart of this growing community.”
