Market Sounding begins to turbocharge Bradfield City Centre 

Media release

Companies from across the globe are being asked to offer up innovative solutions for energy, digital, cyber and circular economy systems that will service stage one of the Bradfield City Centre development.

Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade Alister Henskens said the market sounding process for the 30-hectare stage one site would showcase the technology of the future, unlocking innovative ideas capable of servicing a whole city.

“Bradfield is a city for the future, and we are calling for partners from all across the world to work with us in delivering the best and most advanced services for the residents and businesses that will call it home,” Minister Henskens said.

“We only have one chance to get this right and as we develop this new city from the ground up, we need to make sure we’re investing in the right assets, the best products and the services and solutions that will drive the economy for generations to come.”

Western Parkland City Authority Chair Jennifer Westacott said going to the market for these essential systems will kickstart development across the Bradfield City Centre and secure Australia’s economic future.

“As part of this process we’re asking the market for cutting edge solutions, capabilities and partnerships to optimise government investment and reduce costs to customers.”

“The systems we seek must be customer centric, sustainable, flexible and future proofed. This work will help us attract new investment to Western Sydney and deliver better paid and more diverse local jobs,” Ms Westacott said.

The WPCA has set ambitious targets for stage one of the Bradfield City Centre development that will set new benchmarks in city design in Western Sydney and Australia.

These include:

  • Significantly reduce energy consumption, customer bills and avoid carbon emissions;
  • Provide high-capacity fibre, ultra-high-speed connections and coverage;
  • Enable digitally connected, efficient buildings that activate services like cooling and waste collection;
  • Capture useful city data for energy and water use, weather conditions and service disruptions;
  • Establish circular economy systems where by-products are minimised and residuals such as organic waste are redirected to produce higher value products instead of going to landfill; and
  • Offer resilience in daily life, so people are less vulnerable to the disruption of major weather events, cyber breaches or other incidents.

The market sounding activity will run from November 2022 until March 2023. For more information, visit Bradfield City Centre Stage 1 Market Sounding - Western Parkland City Authority (wpca.sydney)
