Sydney Open Success!

As a proud partner of Sydney Open 2016, we are thrilled that the event was a resounding success! On a perfect spring Sunday, almost 7000 pink banded visitors flocked to the city exploring over 50 buildings not usually open to the public.

Several GMLers generously volunteered their time, energy, and knowledge on Sunday 6 November.

Emma McGirr, GML Consultant, supervised Two International Towers, Barangaroo. An incredible 2678 people visited the building. Queues stretched the length of the foyer and along the front of the building. Emma reported that visitors thought the views were spectacular.

The 5 green star designed building at the EY Centre, 200 George Street was also swamped with 2627 visitors. GML Consultant Sophie Jennings volunteered there. The grand staircase, featuring artefacts from the archaeological investigations generated a buzz, with many visitors intrigued.
