Project Description

Post-tensioning for Sydney’s new Surf Park

URBNSURF Sydney is located within the heart of the Sydney Olympic Park precinct and incorporates a 16,000m2 surf lagoon holding 26 million litres of water. The lagoon can create both left and right-hand breaks with waves surfable by beginners as well as pro surfers honing their skills.

Overlooking the lagoon is a multi-storey purpose-built facility split over three levels. The building is home to some amazing spaces such as the Surfing Academy, where beginners can learn to surf, the Fitness & Wellness Centre, a licensed restaurant and rooftop bar, a café, a hire and merchandise area, a kids’ play area and a splash pool. There is also a leisure pool with a heated hot tub.

Post-tensioned slabs for Lipman

Interspan were entrusted by Lipman with the design and construction of 1,430 square meters of post-tensioned slab comprising the first floor

The post-tensioned slabs were designed using in-house design expertise, industry best practices, and market-leading software in RAM Concept.

As UrbnSurf Homebush opens its doors to over 1,000 daily visitors, Interspan’s contributions stand as a testament to market-leading quality as the only CARES-accredited supplier and installer of post-tension systems in concrete structures.

The surf park promises to elevate Sydney’s recreational landscape and establish a new standard for urban leisure facilities.
