The Sky’s the Limit
Drawable creates the Revit BIM models for St Leonards Square

As ’80s one-hit wonder Yazz famously sang, the only way is up. At least that’s what it currently seems like in the Harbour City. Not only will the NSW Government’s burgeoning $20 billion Sydney Metro scheme breathe new life into our wheezing public transport system, it also looks set to transform the CBD and North Shore skylines.

Plans have been announced for high-rise towers accommodating offices, apartments and a hotel to crown new Metro stations in Pitt Street in the city and Victoria Cross in North Sydney. Pitt Street is slated to house a 47-storey mixed use/hotel structure plus a 65-storey residential behemoth, while Victoria Cross will feature 40 storeys of commercial units with retail at ground level.

Also north of the bridge, Mirvac’s ambitious St Leonards Square (pictured) is already well underway. Boasting two 35+ storey towers, this mixed-use project comprises 526 residential apartments above 7500 square metres of commercial and retail space, home to shops, cafes and a supermarket. Again, this enterprise is motivated by a new Metro station nearby: Crows Nest, an easy 150 metre stroll away.

Inspired by developments around mass-transit locations in New York and London, “Stations on the new Sydney Metro system will be vibrant places and landmarks in their own right,” according to Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance. As every long-suffering Sydney commuter will attest, decent public transport infrastructure is long overdue, but the knock-on effect of new high-density residential precincts is an added bonus for the local construction industry.

Here at Castle Drawable the troops are already head down, bum up churning out Revit BIM models for one of our longest-standing customers, the major electrical contractor on the St Leonards Square site. We love a challenge, though, and we’re set up to take on anything our trade customers want from their favourite drafting firm.

Shop drawings, as builts, revision changes, schematics, lighting diagrams, house circuits, NBN cable pathways… bring it on! Anything that needs drawing in AutoCAD or documenting in a Revit render or 3D model, we can knock out of the park.
