Brefni was engaged to deliver a streetscapes package in the North Sydney CBD, involving intricate and challenging working conditions with significant public interface. Early consultation with North Sydney Council and local restaurants/traders in Mount Street ensured the impact of construction activity was minimised for everyone.
The result is a modern new paved area and pedestrian accessway along Mount and Walker Streets and upgraded road facilities to Spring and Denison Streets.
Challenges faced by the project included;
Working around a high volume of pedestrian traffic
Maintaining access to shops and businesses
Identifying, maintaining and relocating existing utilities
Accelerated program required to complete works to tight deadlines
Offsite manufacturing precast components
Dealing with potential archeological finds
Dealing with stakeholder expectations
