Facilitating the complex services demanded of luxury hotels whilst preserving and celebrating Sydney’s architectural heritage
When Pontiac Land Group was redeveloping two heritage buildings in Sydney CBD’s Sandstone Precinct to become a grand hotel with pool, spa, restaurants, rooftop bar, ballroom and guest accommodation, they called on Stantec to help. Stantec’s services teams met the complex hotel requirements whilst minimising impact on the architecture and facade of the two structures–which extend over two blocks-linked by an underground tunnel.
Limiting construction impact and excavation, we negotiated with the authority for the power supply to be provided from adjacent buildings and investigated to determine where existing water, sewer, stormwater and gas connections could be reused. Our mechanical design connects to a centralised system in the tunnel and the fire protection system is serviced via a single, shared water and boosting source.
The acoustic treatment of services was tailored around the architecture to achieve performance and comfort targets and our lighting scheme celebrates the beautiful features in circulation areas.
Stantec’s integrated and sympathetic approach to design facilitated the transformation from offices to hotel, revitalizing these beautiful heritage buildings in central Sydney.
