Sydney Building and Construction
Over the past decade or so Sydney has experienced construction and development in many of its areas. New Architecturally designed office buildings in the city, multi-residential apartment complexes in areas such as Zetland and Randwick and the renovation of many existing homes some in heritage areas such as Paddington and Balmain. Despite this, the general vernacular of the city has remained the same keeping its historic story in place, that of industry, migrant workers, and British influence.
Architecturally Sydney is a mix of various styles of buildings. With a history of migrant settlements, European and British colonial influence, the design of much the structures we see today have a diverse backdrop. Many have contributed to the elegant patchwork of our cityscape, where we see modern contemporary architecture juxtapose to older historical buildings. With contributions from talented Architects such as Renzo Piano, Jorn Utzon, Norman Foster and recently Frank Ghery, the city is a showcase for worldclass architecture.
And in a city such a Sydney the need for trade workers is high. With a growing and architecturally diverse cityscape, the construction renovation and maintenance of these buildings is always in demand.
