Urban Renewal

Queens Wharf Concept
Hobsonville Point
Barangaroo Development

As developable land becomes increasingly scarce (and expensive), combined with environmental policy inspiring a shift towards more sustainable development options, there is a growing trend towards renewal of urban spaces.

From breathing new life into vacant lots to overhauling an industrial warehouse’s original function, urban renewal developments are setting the benchmark for economic, social, and environmental sustainability.

Hobsonville Point Development

Our broad skill set and experience positions Calibre to meet the unique demands of this emerging market. With a focus on collaboration and creativity and investment in the best technology, we can deliver buildable, cost-effective solutions.

Whether you are a government body seeking to revive a local area and create new opportunities for your community, a developer wanting to convert abandoned blocks into profitable spaces, or an architect envisioning brilliant transformation, we can assemble the right team to help bring your ideas to life.


A once abandoned power station – now a vibrant arts precinct.

A former ice cream factory – transitions into a very sought-after mixed-use masterplanned community.

And in the very heart of Australia’s largest city, a disused industrial space, previously unsafe and characterised by concrete slabs and graffiti – is unveiled as a desirable waterside office, retail and residential and tourism icon.

That’s why we love urban renewal: It’s the transformative and regenerative aspects of these projects which our people scramble to be part of.

The whole shebang

Calibre can provide civil and structural engineering, construction and installation, surveying and planning services, water and environmental design, smart technology solutions, and a range of management and advisory services.

We understand the challenges associated with complex structures or unusual and difficult site requirements, including building on known fault-lines or adjacent to major harbours, developing in environmentally sensitive areas or refurbishing heritage buildings.

Calibre met expectations and came up with innovative solutions for this project to the satisfaction of Menard Bachy and our clients. So much so we will continue with Calibre on the next phase of the Barangaroo Project.
