Overlooking the Darling Harbour forefront in the hustle and bustle of Sydney is where The Ribbon will stand. Its breath-taking design is set to spruce up the local community, as well as astound its visitors from around the world where it is set to take its place on the international stage.

Designed by international award-winning architects, HASSELL, this $700 million redevelopment of the Sydney IMAX Retail and Entertainment Complex will include a 6-star luxury hotel, serviced apartments, world-class IMAX theatre, and retail and commercial space.

Bonacci Group is proud to be involved in the engineering design of the iconic landmark project where the 25-storey glass encased structure cantilevers 35 metres horizontally. The complex features large floor plates up to 3,500sqm all interconnected with voids, and underfloor displacement style air-conditioning with floor-by-floor plant to provide unparalleled air quality for its occupants as well as the ability for individually controlled air-flow.

With environmentally sustainability being a significant box to tick for many, The Ribbon aspires towards a 6-star Green Star design by utilising tri-generation green technology to provide low carbon electricity, heating, and cooling for the building, as well as the integration of solar panels to the curved ribbon roof to provide on-site electricity.

Innovation is required for such a complex project that is like no other, and we believe that this landmark provides a gateway into the future of Sydney’s skyline.
