Cronulla Central is a vibrant community precinct located in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire; a 5 storey building incorporating a world class library, cafes, community spaces, commercial and retail spaces, and a multi-storey carpark.

The project included construction of this new, 5 storey multipurpose facility which included ample parking, administration offices, community halls, plaza facilities and the fit out of Cronulla Library. Crucially, due to Haslin’s meticulous staging and community consultation, all construction took place without any closures to adjoining retail spaces.

The most complex iteration of this staging was Haslin’s adding a further 2 levels to the existing 3 level multi-storey carpark while maintaining continuous access for vehicles and pedestrians on lower levels. To achieve this, innovative use was made of back-propping throughout the build.
