The Ribbon, Sydney
Client: Grocon, Greaton, Place Management NSW
Role: Independent Certifier/Building Contract Superintendent
The Ribbon has earned its name for the undulating form that rises through two elevated roadways on Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Designed by international awarding-winning architects HASSELL, this $700M redevelopment in the heart of Darling Harbour will create a spectacular waterfront experience, providing enhanced ground-level activation, improved sight-lines over the Harbour and pedestrian links across Cockle Bay and from the Harbour through to Darling Quarter.
The 25 storey hotel and serviced apartment development will also deliver modern new premises for the IMAX theatre, which currently occupies the site, together with significant upgrades to the surrounding public realm. Essence role is as Independent Certifier under the three main contractual documents the D&C Contract between Grocon Developer and Grocon Builder, the Development Takeout Agreement between Grocon Developer and the Investor/Owner (Greaton) and the Agreement for Lease between Grocon Developer and Place Management NSW.
