Green Square is a new and sustainable $13 billion, 14-hectare urban
renewal project being executed by the City of Sydney in partnership with
leading private developers. Featuring world-class community facilities and
extensive infrastructure, and located just 3.5km from the CBD in Sydney’s Inner
South and 4km from the International Airport at Mascot, Green Square will house
61,000 people and 22,000 new workers by 2030.
The new community library at Green Square features extendable safety
barriers from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) at the entrance. Specified
by Sydney architect, Stewart Hollenstein, the barriers were delivered as part
of a custom lock-up door solution. ATDC worked closely with project managers
John Holland in delivering their S04-1 DD Double Diamond mesh extendable safety
barriers; the project architect selected the barrier as it provided a freestanding
and robust yet economical security solution and could be installed in the
absence of any available support structure.
ATDC’s unique safety barriers not only comply with the Australian
Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings but also with the emergency
egress requirements of the BCA, allowing keyless egress in the event of an emergency.
Since the barriers were being installed at the entrance to the public library,
it was imperative that the emergency egress facility was incorporated into the
design of the barrier system.
ATDC had earlier installed a similar barrier system for the State Transit Authority in Barangaroo at the entry to the
new ferry terminal.
For the Green Square project, ATDC installed the barrier system at the
foot of the stairs leading to the library entrance, with the barriers formatted
in a U-shaped configuration to completely surround the balustrading on the
stairs. Standing at a standard height of 2020mm, the mobile and portable
extendable safety barriers were installed on a series of heavy duty non marking
thermoplastic castors and finished in a satin black powdercoat. The barriers
were stabilised using intermediate shootbolts that engage with the finished
ATDC’s extendable safety barriers are sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane,
Adelaide, Canberra and Perth as well as all regional towns across the country. They
are also being exported throughout South East Asia, the Asia-Pacific region, the
Pacific Islands and the UAE.
