QT Sydney opens

The official opening on September 18, 2012  of QT Sydney has heralded the first five-star hotel to be built in the Sydney CBD in over a decade. QT Hotel is a new 200-room hotel across the upper 12 levels of the Gowings and State Theatre Buildings. The major refurbishment work sees the existing commercial buildings converted into QT Sydney with the restoration of many architectural heritage features.

In related news, the QT Sydney project has just picked up its first award, winning the Engineering Excellence Award at the AIQS Infinite Value Awards. The award was picked up by Godfrey Frederick (Associate Director) at the gala awards night in Melbourne.

Waterman Sydney delivered the Building Engineering services on what was a very challenging project requiring numerous innovative solutions to overcome the challenges posed in re-developing a heritage listed building. Scott Brown who was Waterman’s Project Director commented; “The efforts of Waterman’s engineering team with architects Woodhead, owners Amalgamated Holdings and the entire design and construction team lead by Built have been recognised in the form of winning the Engineering Excellence award. This great result shows that existing buildings can be re-birthed and challenge the boundaries which are typically considered for new buildings only.”
