Northrop - Celebrating 20 years on the Central Coast

While Northrop has been around since 1976, this week marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of our Central Coast office.

Trevor Clack, who at the time was a Graduate Structural Engineer, now Northrop Director and Central Coast Manager, saw the opportunities unfolding in the region and opened a small office in Terrigal in August 2003.

This became the launch pad for a business that now employs twenty-two people locally and is one of the leading consultancies on the Central Coast.

“Our early projects, the majority of which were luxury houses and units, quickly built us a strong reputation and allowed us to develop relationships with others in the industry that are still strong today,” said Trevor.

“These relationships, bolstered by a growing team, lead to more diverse projects across a number of sectors including health, aged care, hospitality, commercial, industrial, community, council and multi-storey residential projects.”

Making a significant contribution to the local built environment, some of the most recognisable/notable projects designed by Northrop include:

  • Bunnings at West Gosford, Tuggerah and Lake Haven
  • Golflinks Commercial Estate, North Wyong
  • Tuggerah Straight Commercial Centre
  • St Hilliers, Gosford
  • Glengara, Wood Glen and Tarragal Glen Aged Care
  • Peninsular Village, Woy Woy
  • North Gosford Private Hospital
  • Brisbane Waters Private Hospital
  • Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital
  • Bonython Towers, Gosford
  • Rockpool Apartments, Terrigal
  • Ravello and Peninsular Apartments, Point Frederick
  • Mingara Club
  • Elanora Hotel, East Gosford
  • Railway Hotel, Gosford
  • The Doylo, Doyalson
  • Saddles, Mount White

Congratulations to our Central Coast team on reaching this milestone, and a big thank you to our clients and partners in the region who continue to support us.
