The Adelaide-based project was recognised for being an exceptional regeneration project that has had ongoing benefits for industry, the environment and for locals.

The community-centric precinct brings together residential, retail, commercial and educational spaces in amongst public areas including parklands and walking and cycling tracks. It also features a former industrial building that has been adaptively reused and refurbished.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff is proud to have been a part of delivering this outstanding project. Our Property team provided a number of services including; sustainability, mechanical, electrical, hydraulics, fire protection, acoustics and architectural lighting.

Ben Carr, Director - Buildings commended all those involved on the project for creating a truly integrated precinct that showcases world-best innovation and sustainability design principles.

'Tonsley exemplifies high quality urban design; and through an innovative design approach, the project team has been able to completely transform this former brownfield site into a world-class mixed-use precinct that is highly sustainable.'

'The precinct was Australia’s first urban renewal development to achieve a 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating which is a testament to the world-class design principles which have guided the redevelopment of the site.'
