Thoughtfully Rebuilding our Historical Landscapes

Dubbed “adaptive re-use of heritage at its finest” by Special Minister of State Don Harwin, the Waverton Coal Loader is one of the many remedial works that ACOR has had the pleasure to work on.

From the ancient culture of the Cammeraygal Aboriginal people to an industrial coal bunkering and distribution centre, The Coal Loader demonstrates the layering of human history.

In January 2015, ACOR were commissioned by North Sydney Council to transform the historic site into a vibrant community facility that recognised both indigenous and European occupation.

Understanding the impact and significance of this site, ACOR undertook site investigations and modelling to determine a suitable remedial strategy which would restore and convert the historic site to a public recreation, museum, and learning facility.

Alongside delivering this multi-award winning project, it was recently announced that The Coal Loader will be given the state’s highest level of heritage protection.

ACOR have proven experience in the restoration and adaptive reuse of heritage buildings and structures. Learn more about The Waverton Coal Loader project and how we provide remedial services to help our communities.
