Powerhouse Ultimo Renewal

Slattery was a core consultant assisting Create NSW in the preparation of the final business case (FBC) for the renewal of the existing powerhouse Museum at Ultimo. NSW State funding for this strategic project was then announced as part of the 2021 budget, demonstrating the success of our cost advisory services. NSW Government plans to invest $480-$500 million to reinvigorate one of Australia’s most revered and loved museums, Powerhouse Ultimo.

Slattery has also been engaged for Stage 2 of the project to provide cost planning and carbon planning services during the design competition, design development phase, contractor tender award, and construction phases until the completion of the project. The renewal will see Powerhouse Ultimo focus on design and fashion, presenting exhibitions that showcase the museum’s significant collections, international exclusive exhibitions, and programs that support the design and fashion industries.

The renewal will deliver expanded and refurbished exhibition and public space, connecting Powerhouse Ultimo to the Sydney CBD by re-orienting the museum to the Goods Line and adjacent dining, entertaining and cultural precincts.
