Since it was built, the Central Park building has become the new icon of Sydney. This forum is an opportunity to see how a transdisciplinary engineering team produced an award-winning engineering masterpiece. Central Park is smart in every aspect, maximizing self-sufficiency through renewable energy sources and sustainable water supplies. The $2 billion urban village sits across a 5.8-hectare site with one third dedicated to open space.

The $2 billion urban village features 11 buildings, 1,800 apartments, shops, restaurants and much more across a 5.8-hectare site. A third of Central Park is dedicated to open space.

Drawing on a $100 million investment in green technology, Central Park is now powered by its own tri-generation thermal energy plant making its buildings green, smart and self-sufficient.

23 green walls have their own irrigation systems supported by a building management system that monitors energy and hot and cold water consumption in 1,430 apartments and 70 retail tenancies.

Central Park also has its own recycled water network. The Membrane Bioreactor is the biggest in the world and saves up to 50% of drinking water. The network services over 4,000 residents and over 15,000 workers and visitors daily.

Forum attendees will see and hear presentations from the transdisciplinary engineering team about a range of Central Park features with Q&A and lunch. These features will include:

  • Green Wall
  • Recycled Water Treatment Plant
  • Thermal Plant

** PPE and closed shoes will be required to join this Forum
