Antoun was commissioned to remediate an existing Ferry Wharf and dilapidated public space. The project involved a complete upgrade of the reserve, installing a small water craft facility, kayak ramp, retaining wall, and salt marsh landscaping, whilst maintaining continued residential access and preserving the original essence as an Indigenous sacred site.
The scope of works included
- Initial works required collaboration with local council and the notification of residents due to essential asbestos and ground contamination remediation
- Construction included concrete footpaths, kerb, and gutter installations, timber piling works for Ferry Wharf and Kayak Ramp, and base preparation for new pavement and carpark
- Finishing works involved handrail installation, the construction of the superstructure for the Wharf and piling completion for the Kayak Ramp
- After soft landscape works and road paving and sealing, picnic area furniture was installed as well as line marking and signage
Antoun produced an inviting public space with a natural aesthetic and functional watercraft components. The project was managed ethically and safely in light of the asbestos remediation and construction maintained the Indigenous integrity of the original site.
