Edmondson Park North Commuter Car Park

A much-needed solution for commuters with 900 new parking spaces for the precinct

As part of the NSW Government’s Commuter Car Park Program, the Edmondson Park North Commuter Car Park from Transport for NSW has successfully delivered a significant increase of 900 new parking spaces. The NSW Government is committed to delivering accessible public transport infrastructure, so Transport for NSW is providing more commuter car parks where needed. It provides a range of benefits, including: improved customer access to the public transport network, encouraging mode shift away from private vehicles, improves the flexibility and reliability of customer ‘first and last mile’ of their journey contributing to reducing congestion on the road network.

The Group
Client: Transport for New South Wales
Studios: Sydney, Australia
The Team:

The Edmondson Park North Commuter Car Park stands out with its unique features. Our design includes a ground-plus-six suspended-level car park and boasts:


  •  a feature façade
  •  increased floor height on the ground floor for future retail conversion
  •  two lifts
  •  a metal deck roof with solar panels
  • electric vehicle charging, and
  • provisions for boom gates.


New artwork will be installed at the car park’s pedestrian entrance to complement the south commuter car park and reflect the area’s natural history.



A strong focus on sustainability and reducing carbon emissions.

The commuter car park has developed world-leading sustainability initiatives to allow future projects to adopt greener construction methods and create resilient and future-focused infrastructure, supporting Transport for NSW’s Net Zero and climate change commitments.

The traffic assessment involved removing parallel parking and adding a new through lane. A large stormwater detention facility was also installed to reduce the post-development discharge from the existing greenfield site. It is built using innovative construction methods. This project is one of the first to apply the principles and requirements of the latest Concrete Code (AS3600-2018). Amongst the main updates were new design provisions for earthquake ductility, detailing and floor plate diaphragm design.

The new northern car park has adopted world-leading sustainability initiatives, including artificial intelligence-powered energy monitoring systems, portable battery systems in place of diesel generators, and hydrogen generators.

The achievements include:


  • 94% of construction and demolition waste was recycled
  • Diesel consumption was reduced by up to 90%, with over 60,000 litres of diesel and over 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide saved
  • Over 800 rooftop solar panels installed to help power the building
  • 10 electric vehicle charging stations and capacity for more to be added in the future
  • A rainwater capture system to water the car park gardens
  • Carbon dioxide injected concrete mix in footpaths, a landmark trial for future concrete designs.


The AW Edwards construction team incorporated world-leading initiatives such as the Gaia Automate smart distribution board energy monitoring system, the Enertainer Power Bank system, and hydrogen generators replacing diesel generators.

It complies with the Sustainability Design Guidelines v4.0 and has enabled a sustainability legacy case study document to be used as a reference for future projects.

The project has been recognised with a prestigious Platinum rating, the highest-level rating awarded by Transport for NSW.
