Greenland Primus Hotel

Client: Ganellen (principal)

Project: Greenland Primus Hotel, 339 Pitt St, Sydney

Description: This work is part of a major redevelopment of a heritage-listed office building into a contemporary five-star hotel. The overall project includes:

  • partial demolition of the existing art deco building
  • adaptive reuse of the existing building as a hotel
  • development of 180 hotel rooms over six floor
  • rooftop restaurant, bar and pool.

Barnson’s Role: Procure and manage the installation of all structural steel in an $800,000 contract, including technical consulting services to streamline the engineering, fabrication, supply and installation of the steel.

Time frameBuilding work started in 2015. The hotel is expected to open in 2016.

Barnson is proud to be installing all the structural steelwork for this exciting project in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. 

The Greenland Primus Hotel is part of the Greenland Centre development, owned by the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group. It will sit next to Greenland’s 66-storey luxury apartment tower, which will become the tallest residential building in Sydney.

The hotel component of the complex includes the conversion of a heritage-listed, art deco style building at 339 Pitt St that served as the offices of the Sydney Metropolitan Water Sewerage and Drainage (the Water Board) from 1939 until 2009. The hotel will include 180 beds, rooftop restaurant, bar and pool.

The project has highlighted the strengths in Barnson’s project and program management systems and their focus on maintaining regular client interaction and providing meaningful updates.
