Barangaroo South wins big at UDIA NSW Awards

Barangaroo South was recognised for its exceptional work in combining residential, office and retail in the one precinct. More specifically it was awarded for overcoming environmental challenges and utilising research, innovation, design, technology and construction techniques for improvements in environmental, social and financial outcomes and creating a new vibrant precinct for the people of Sydney. 
Managing Director of Barangaroo South, Rob Deck, said delivering the globally significant waterfront precinct reflects our commitment to creating the best places.

“We are thrilled that Barangaroo has been recognised by such a respected industry body as the UDIA. In the past year, we have seen Barangaroo embraced as a fantastic new part of Sydney and everything it has to offer,” Rob said. 

Large urban regeneration projects, like Barangaroo South, provide a rare opportunity to trial new products, systems and methodologies – from sustainability to safety, from design to delivery. These include initiatives such as the Barangaroo Skills Exchange (BSX) and the Barangaroo District Cooling Plant (DCP). 

The Barangaroo construction site became a platform to create a positive learning and social legacy through the BSX. Established in partnership with the Western Sydney Institute of TAFE and the Construction Industry Skills Council, the BSX delivered a range of practical skilling, nationally recognised training courses and awareness programs, which met the demands of an onsite sustainability skilled workforce.

The Barangaroo DCP was another initiative undertaken in the precinct. The DCP provides chilled water for air conditioning of all the buildings in Barangaroo South. The plant is a major contributor to achieving carbon neutral and water positive outcomes in the precinct.
