Emerdyn Custom Craftsmanship
The architect’s brief for Barangaroo South was to transform Sydney’s historic industrial precinct into a lively waterfront district. Lend Lease, the site’s developer, sought the reliable supply of quality cast products to overlay street drains and tree surrounds.
Emerdyn fabricated stunning Cast Bronze Drain Grates, Cast Ductile Iron Tree Grates and Slotted Drain Grates. True to brief, the bronze and ductile iron streetwear brings streets to life whilst nodding to the precincts’ former industrial nature.
Ductile iron has strong impact and fatigue resistance compared to other varieties of cast iron. Usually painted for street presentation, this project called for unfinished ductile iron for its surface-corrosion aesthetic. Juxtaposed with shimmering bronze grates, the suite of products balances precinct history and future perfectly.
Sound quality processes and systems have ensured Emerdyn’s consistent supply of items required throughout different project phases and the products add to Barangaroo South’s undeniable street style.
