APP announces Hutchinson Builders as contractor for major Sydney development

APP has been working closely with developers United Development Sydney (UDS) as the Project Manager for the new ‘Castle Residences’ at 116 Bathurst Street. In this role, APP has been involved in overseeing design management, early works including demolition and excavation of the site, authorities approvals, tender, appointment of a contractor and construction through to completion.

After a highly competitive bidding process, Hutchinson Builders were selected to lead construction of this new development in the heart of the CBD, with the contract signing ceremony taking place earlier this month.

The premium ‘Castle Residences’ development will see construction of 131 luxury residential apartments and a 122 room boutique hotel in addition to the full restoration of the five-storey heritage listed Porter House which will incorporate a café, restaurants, bars and conference facilities. The development is expected to be complete in 2021.

Paul Chapple, APP’s Project Director leading the project, said: “Hutchinson Builders are a good fit for this exciting new Sydney CBD project. Being a premium contractor with a focus on quality, their values align with the vision that UDS has in providing a unique living concept integrated with bespoke hotel facilities. APP looks forward to working closely with them to ensure the successful delivery of Castle Residences to fulfil the objectives of UDS.”
