MACLAREN BUSINESS ESTATE
NORTH ROCKS, NSW
Macquarie Goodman commissioned GroupGSA to develop the master plan for this former industrial site. The factory adjoined sensitive bushland, and part of the project was to ensure the conservation and improve the adjoining bushland. Through good environmental design the natural bushland is incorporated into the estate at every opportunity. Streets were organised to provide North South orientation for the units. This reduced cut and fill on site and provided a natural drainage system and allowed views to the bushland. Road design allowed for both rigid eight metre trucks and articulated vehicles to proceed through the site entering and exiting in a forward direction. Twenty-five units were designed, providing a gross floor area of 4,500sqm. Car parking space for 132 cars was provided.
