Arterra responded to a complex brief for this high profile urban plaza located under the northern approach to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The design addressed significant Bridge security requirements, pedestrian flows, disabled access, night safety of users, weekend flea market use, massive peak crowd loads (eg New Years Eve), large volumes of water falling from the bridge above, heritage issues, existing large Fig Trees, school bus interchange requirements and the provision of new public toilets. As part of the brief we modelled the site and the proposed design options in 3D. Accurate photorealistic views of the proposed plaza were included on Councils web site as part of the support information during the DA process. Arterra was the lead consultant coordinating all civil, structural and electrical engineers and irrigation consultants during the documentation of the Plaza.
