This stage was the most complicated, detailed and scenic component of the foreshore redevelopment, involving internationally protected migratory birds, local endangered shore birds, protected mangroves, endangered salt marsh and land contamination. Special attention needed to be given to the design and construction of the boardwalk, balustrades, feature walls and artwork and custom street furniture to provide views of the heritage-listed wharf, a new sand island and main bird habitat and roosting areas.
Taren Point, NSW
$2 – $5m
The scope of works included
- Design of continuous boardwalks and viewing platforms from conception to construction
- Design of feature artworks to complement the ‘rustic’ style of the historical jetty and oyster farms
- Presentation of 3D design models prior to approval
Using a combination of fibre reinforced polymer and hardwoods we were able to deliver designs that perfectly complemented the aesthetic of the heritage features and natural environment. Functionally, the designs provided structural integrity, longevity of materials, serviceability and purpose of use while matching all Australian legislative standards.
