Ports & Logistics

White Bay Cruise Terminal
Client: Sydney Ports Corporation
Project value: AU$65 million

TSA provided project management over a three year period including design management and procurement phases, onsite delivery strategy and contract administration.

We managed the demolition of existing site structures, wharf remediation works, construction of the new cruise ship passenger terminal and gangways, along with new roads linking the terminal to the City West Link and infrastructure upgrades – which were delivered under multiple design and construct contracts. Our role had a particular focus on obtaining the various authority access deeds and approvals which attracted high public attention due to the location of the site.

The new terminal has retained the memory of the site’s previous use with the adaptive use of the existing heritage steel structures for an arrivals hall, ship positioning and function facilities all under a distinctive contemporary roof canopy. 

The White Bay Cruise Passenger Terminal won the 2013 ‘World Transport Building of the Year’ category at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore, with the judges noting:  “This is a simple, elegant assembly of components and a good integration of new and old.” It was also awarded Highly Commended in the ‘Transport Interiors’ category.
