A brand new venue is opening in October 2009! The Doltone House Group who are behind some of Sydney’s best known venues such as Jones Bay Wharf, Sans Souci and Deepwater are launching Darling Island Wharf.
Designed with a contemporary feel in mind, not only is the venue set to be beautiful- it’s also achieved a 6 star energy rating! The building is to be the first in NSW with such a high energy rating and features eco friendly building techniques such as
- Blackwater reuse (treatment and reuse of sewerage for watering the adjoining parkland and for toilet flushing)
- Tri-generation (co-generation for gas fired electricity production, with reuse of the heated air for absorption cooling of the building and heating of hot water)
- Australia’s first structural concrete made from recycled products
- Heat rejection from the building chillers via the harbour
- 50% higher levels of fresh air supply, CO2 sensors and variable speed fans along with use of finishes and material of low toxicity to ensure the highest quality air for building occupants thus minimising the emission of toxins, pollutants, germs and bacteria typically within a building’s air supply
- Use of insulation products throughout the building that are made without ozone depleting gases in their manufacture or composition
- High performance glass, insulation and building materials which minimise heat loss and gains through windows and external walls
Darling Island Wharf has a capacity for over 800 guests in the largest space with additional spaces for different events. Some overlook the water with city & Harbour Bridge views, while others look over Sydney’s gorgeous parks.
Darling Island Wharf is not all about functions, the new venue will also feature a cafe and fresh food and wine emporium with open kitchen. Darling Island Wharf is close to Darling Harbour and Jones Bay Wharf, has plenty of accommodation and parking nearby and can be accessed by public transport and even boat for a grand entrance!
