Government architect WH Withers began work on the plans in 1939 but the project was stopped due to wartime labour and materials shortages. Work finally resumed in 1944 under government architect W D H Baxter and builders were appointed in 1946 but the project experienced more delays. The foundation stone was laid in 1949 and in 1952 the imposing six-storey housing the offices of the Maritime Services Board opened.

政府建築師WH Withers於1939年開始製定計劃,但該項目由於戰時勞動力和材料短缺而停止。 1944年,政府建築師W D H Baxter完成了工作,建築工人於1946年任命,但項目經歷了更多延誤。 該基石於1949年奠基,1952年,海事服務委員會辦公室開放了六層高的住房。

A major $53 million redevelopment of the MCA by Sydney architect Sam Marshall in association with the New South Wales Government Architect’s Office commenced in August 2010.

The refurbished building, which opened on 29 March 2012, increased the MCA’s total size by almost 50% with the addition of 4500 square metres, including a new 5-storey wing. The cutting-edge architecture of the new wing complements the existing building, while the use of new technologies sets a new standard for collaboration with audiences through a robust wi-fi service and unique digital infrastructure.

The MCA redevelopment was made possible by public and private sector support. The Federal Government and the NSW State Government each contributed $13 million. The MCA’s Chairman, Simon Mordant and his wife Catriona, contributed $15 million, in recognition of which the extension has been named the Mordant Wing. The City of Sydney added $1 million, with the remainder contributed by individual donors and one company.

悉尼建築師Sam Marshall與新南威爾士州政府建築師事務所聯合開展的一項重大的5300萬美元的MCA重建工作於2010年8月開始。
