Sydney Ferry Wharves Upgrade Program
Conrad Gargett Ancher Mortlock Woolley has been commissioned as the architectural design consultant for the Ferry Wharves Upgrade Package 2. This includes the upgrade of 28 ferry wharves and interchange precincts to improve their accessibility, services connectivity, safety and amenity for ferry customers.
Building on the original design (by Group GSA), a “kit of parts” approach has been adopted for the design of the main waterside building components. This enables prefabrication and modular elements to suit the specifics of each wharf site, within a unified, distinctive and iconic design theme.
The wharf pontoons are three standard sizes, with the wharf buildings consisting of a canopy shelter, service pad and glazed screens, linked to the shore bridge or existing jetties by an 18m long roofed gangway.
The landside works are also a critical part of the design. A new portal entry canopy provides a new address and assist way-finding for each wharf. This will provide an important information node and interface to facilitate the intermodal transport connection to public buses, kiss ‘n’ ride drop offs and cycle ways.
Of the 28 ferry wharves around Sydney Harbour that are in various phases of design, McMahons and Meadowbank Wharves have now been fully completed.
