processing areas, offices and visitor facilities (including car parking), medical and mental health facilities, education and library facilities, sporting and recreational, kitchen, dining and maintenance facilities. This project is focused on bringing the facility into line with community standards for living conditions, and into compliance with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP)’s standards for design and fit-out, DDA and BCA regulations. Stage 2 of the redevelopment presented the additional challenges of a live site, with detainees living within the centre, creating the need to delineate works from residences. Hansen Yuncken constructed further multi-purpose and special care accommodation, as well as additional amenities and recreational facilities. Hansen Yuncken also implemented world-first innovative solutions for electronic security and detection systems, as well as innovative aluminium window technology. Managing dozens of government stakeholders, Hansen Yuncken facilitated this project’s delivery within a highly secure operational environment. By working intensively with the DIBP, Hansen Yuncken is working to ensure commissioning requirements are met and the facility is handed over to the government smoothly..
Located within the heart of Sydney, Hansen Yuncken is currently constructing the new Inner Sydney High School, blending heritage structures with contemporary architecture. The NSW Government aims to create flexible facilities to support technology-rich settings and an evolving curriculum. New teaching spaces at Inner Sydney High School will incorporate principles of energy efficiency and ecologically sustainable development. The project is being delivered in two stages. The first stage of the project was handed over in time for Day 1, Term 1, 2020, with the second stage on track for a late 2020 handover.
A new state-of-the art aged care facility in Drummoyne adds another great achievement to Hansen Yuncken’s expanding aged care portfolio. Scalabrini Village, a leading residential aged care provider, awarded the ECI Phase contract to Hansen Yuncken in May 2015 with Phase 2 construction of the facility awarded in May 2016. This challenging development incorporated design and care principles that will support and enrich the lives of those living with dementia or a complex care need.
PBG has been awarded the upgrade of Riverbank Public School located at The Ponds, NSW.

The project will also involve the internal refurbishment of existing areas within the school, the construction of a new Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLA), landscaping and external works. This new development will cater for the current and projected population growth in the Blacktown Local Government area as a result of numerous large scale residential subdivisions surrounding the school, and will increase the school’s capacity to 1000+ students.
