CPB Contractors has been selected by the New South Wales Government to build the new Sydney Metro City & Southwest Pitt Street Station.
The contract, part of Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project, will generate revenue of approximately $317mn to CPB Contractors for design and construction of the station. The first stage of the project, Sydney Metro Northwest, opened in June.
The Integrated Station Development will provide a 250-metre-long underground Pitt Street Station running from Park Street to Bathurst St, between Pitt and Castlereagh Streets, connecting the two station entries with retail and other commercial facilities.
In addition, CPB Contractors will work with Oxford Properties Group for the design and construction of the two high-rise buildings above the station. The buildings will be 39-storeys each and comprise one commercial office building and one build to rent residential building.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright commented: “This project continues CIMIC Group’s strong track record of providing important infrastructure to benefit communities and help to drive continued economic growth.
“Our multi-disciplinary skills will be central to delivering this vibrant and important new public transport and commercial hub in the heart of Sydney’s central business district.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria added: “Award of this project consolidates CPB Contractors’ position as a leading contractor delivering Sydney Metro, building on our work on Sydney Metro Northwest and Sydney Metro City & Southwest.
“Importantly, this is also a major step in the expansion and success of CPB Contractors’ building sector, working across key commercial, health and community facilities. CPB Contractors is proud to be working closely with Sydney Metro, Oxford Properties and the local business community to deliver this important new station and two landmark high-rise towers.”
Work on the station will begin in 2020 and is expected to be concluded in 2023. By 2024, Sydney Metro will deliver 31 metro stations and more than 66 kilometres of new metro rail. CPB Contractors, together with its joint venture partners, delivered the tunnelling and civil works for the recently-opened Sydney Metro Northwest and is currently constructing the 15.5km twin tunnels and associated fit-out works for Sydney Metro City & Southwest.
