Contributing to the development of the prestigious Jacksons Landing site on the Pyrmont peninsula allowed Fleetwood Urban to demonstrate the diversity of public domain work we offer our clients.
From rock anchoring, maintenance vehicle accessible cliff ramps and public art elements through to landscaping and lighting, Fleetwood embraced the challenges of the waterfront site – including limited geographic access – and has helped to make it a place that residents will enjoy in this newly developed area.
One of Fleetwood’s key tasks in this $1.7m project was to design and construct an access ramp on the knoll cliff face for the general public as well as maintenance vehicles. This required detailed surveying of the site to determine the foundation/connection points that then needed rock anchoring to ensure that the structure has stable structural foundations. The ramp was then constructed offsite by Fleetwood and installed using multiple cranes. Our specialist installation crew had to meet the requirements of Lend Lease’s Global Minimum Requirements (GMR’s).
Smaller crawler cranes were also used to install Knoll Remnants, which are public artworks created from structural and soft landscaping elements including precast concrete, steel and timber, on the knoll. The remnants were envisaged and designed by JMD Design. We took the design forward through engineering and completed the installation of the artworks.
Fleetwood was also responsible for managing the lighting infrastructure and the landscaping of the site.
The project required the involvement of many members of the Fleetwood team, and it took advantage of our wide-ranging skills and experience in the planning, design, construction and installation of the elements.
