PPC were selected via competitive tender to partner with AMP Capital to complete the project management services for the redevelopment of AMP’s landholdings at Circular Quay in Sydney. The site comprises the commercial re-development and expansion of 50 Bridge Street, 33 Alfred and a mixed-use development on the site bounded by Young & Loftus streets. PPC have worked closely with AMP Capital to achieve their stated aim of finalising the Quay Quarter Sydney (QQS) master plan and concept design in line with commercial parameters. The QQS development represents a world-class mixed-use project providing over 150,000sqm of commercial space, 10,000sqm of retail space, 106 residential apartments and over 4,000sqm of new open space.
The centrepiece of the multi-billion QQS development is Quay Quarter Tower (QQT); a 90,000sqm commercial tower designed by Danish Architects 3XN. In 2014, as part of the feasibility for QQT, PPC were responsible for successfully driving an ambitious value engineering agenda. PPC worked alongside AMP Capital to progress the design and construction element of this landmark project to achieve a Development Application (DA) approval in late 2015. PPC have been responsible for managing the delivery of the Stage 2 Development Approval (S2DA), developing a schematic design to construction using world first, bespoke construction methods, developing and managing programme, procurement, and delivery while managing an international design team made up of names such as 3XN, BVN, Arup, Tom Dixon, and BG&E. In 2017 PPC’s role was extended to include the project management of the landlord works for anchor tenants Deloitte and AMP Services.
The project management role on QQT is ongoing as PPC, together with AMP Capital and the design team, partnered with Multiplex, progress the project to completion.
