Gresham Street Redevelopment, Adelaide, SA

The South Australia State Government and Adelaide City Council recently collaborated to transform the Gresham Street lane into a French Quarter. The investment is in response to a $50 billion submarine contract won by a French company (NCDS). As a result, 300 French families are expected to relocate to Adelaide over the next ten years and a vibrant French Quarter would become a welcome familiarity.

Project Design Brief

A central component of the design was to make the street and footpath one level to ease the movement of pedestrians. Designers required a trench drainage system that would quickly and efficiently remove runoff from the pavement and street, whilst withstanding vehicular traffic and meeting safety requirements for pedestrians.
