The landmark WWI J. F. Archibald Memorial Fountain is located in Hyde Park North, above St James Railway Station. The fountain was unveiled a few days prior to the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, in 1932. We are currently delivering restoration and conservation works on the fountain, work delivered for the first time in around 20 years. We’ll be completely renewing the waterproofing, electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical systems, as well as renewing the fountain’s illumination systems, restoring and protecting the bronze statues, and restoring and repairing sections of the polished granite plinths. We’re proud to be partnering with the Council of the City of Sydney again (previous projects including Glebe Town Hall, and the Golden Water Mouth Sculpture in Chinatown), and we’ll work constantly to ensure we deliver equally first class results.
