Lendlease’s Calderwood Valley development covers approximately 700 hectares and will ultimately be home to 12,500 residents. The masterplanned community incorporates residential lots, open space and drainage as well as land designated for retail, commercial, business and light industrial development.

The Orion Consulting team has been engaged by Lendlease to provide Project Management and Construction Management services across multiple stages of the project. Orion Consulting has also supported Lendlease in a Development Management capacity during periods of peak workload.

On the back of strong market conditions and successful early trading on the project, it was important to maintain strong momentum in terms of both delivery of approved development as well as the forward planning of future stages. Whilst the topography of the site is one of the projects greatest assets in terms of the presence in the landscape, it also presented its challenges throughout the project lifecycle.

The successful delivery of a masterplanned community requires a collaborative approach to be taken across all aspects of the project. Orion Consulting has worked closely with Lendlease and the broader stakeholder group on a number of projects including residential subdivision, lead-in infrastructure, parks and open space, riparian corridors in both a Project Management and Principals Representative capacity. Orion Consulting also managed the delivery of the Sprout Community Hub and the Sales Centre from which the project team now operates.

Calderwood Valley continues to be a market leader within the Illawarra region and a flagship development in the Lendlease Communities portfolio.
