This project involved the D&C transformation of North Strathfield’s heritage Arnott’s Bakehouse factory, converting 40 000m2 of dilapidated buildings into a vibrant commercial precinct, with cobblestone streets, parks, retail outlets, restaurants, bars, commercial spaces and a multi-storey, 567 space carpark.

Haslin were involved in this project from day one, working closely with our client, Blackwall Property Trust, to ensure the rich heritage of the site was not only retained, but incorporated into the revitalised precinct. This included maintenance of riveted steel beams (imported from Scotland by William Arnott himself), cleaning & shot-blasting of heritage bricks and incorporation of hidden structural elements in the various heritage buildings.
