ADDRESS:              Wynyard walk tunnel Station
YEAR:                     FEB 16 – Jul 16
AREA:                     850 SQM
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Wynyard Walk tunnel is a section of the developing Sydney’s financial district and Barangaroo. The project allows to connect the Barangaroo waterfront to Wynyard Station located in the Sydney CBD.
ARMA was engaged by CPB to create a highly detailed 3D model of the bespoke FIT-OUT, which allows the architects to ensure that their vision for the tunnel was realised and the fabrication requirements were met. My role on this project was “Package Leader”, with a extended range of responsibilities, across system design, tool development, management, DRAFT-MAN and 3DModelLer.
THE 3D MODEL WHICH I’VE DEVELOPED IS DATA DRIVEN and PARAMETRIC AS WELL AS IT’S COORDINATED WITH THE ARCHITECT’S DESIGN, SOUND AND LIGHT SYSTEM AND STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS.
It’s able to adapt to and accommodate design changes or construction site variations, based on periodic 3D scans.
Rather than producing traditional drawing packages to outline construction and site installation, I worked directly with fabricators in order to produce “direct-to-fabrication”, for manufacture packages.
These packages were used to produce highly complex components and assembly within tight tolerances.
This agile manner of working allowed me to achieve high levels of geometric complexity in all areas of the design, and quickly respond to any issues encountered on site. Over 700 perforated stainless steel panels, 40 types of main and secondary “light trough”, rolled SHS, brackets, pre-cut RHS and CUSTOMISED elements have been delivered and installed within the TOLERANCE.
