Parliament Chambers Refurbishment – NSW
Legal & Military
NSW Parliament House is undergoing critical maintenance and restoration work, ensuring the historic building is preserved for the NSW public for years to come.
After extensive consultation with the parliamentary community, including members from all political groupings, this critical work has begun across the Parliamentary precinct. It is a once in a four-year opportunity to act, during the extended parliamentary break. Work includes the restoration of the heritage ‘Rum Hospital’ façade – dating from the building’s original use as Sydney’s first public hospital – and the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly chambers.
The critical maintenance and renovation work forms part of a $22 million allocation from the NSW Government to address a historical maintenance backlog and significant ongoing deterioration.
NSW Parliament House is the oldest legislature in Australia, and the 1816 ‘Rum Hospital’ is the oldest surviving building in the Sydney CBD. It is the first significant remediation work performed in 40 years.
