The Goods Line

Aspect Studios

ASPECT Studios and CHROFI’s The Goods Line provides a key strategic link between Sydney’s Central Station, Chinatown, and Darling Harbour, whilst engaging with proximal institutions UTS, TAFE and the ABC. AR-MA was engaged by ASPECT Studios in 2012 to collaborate on the technical design and fabrication of the precast concrete plank system which forms the ground of the project. Unusual in construction, AR-MA used a virtual design and construction model to deliver a full, detailed shop drawing package at tender for pricing, including a complete set of technical details and drawings for all 454 concrete planks. In doing so, AR-MA removed all ambiguity from the tender process, resulting in all tenderers returning prices on budget and within three percent of each other. AR-MA’s involvement in The Goods Line Project allowed ASPECT Studios and CHROFI to move Sydney’s centre towards greater connectivity, sustainability, and innovation.
