ProjectBallina RSL Boardwalk
There were many aspects of this project to be aware of, including different berthing requirements, a sloping seabed, and minimising long term maintenance.
The client came to us wanting a pedestrian and boat friendly boardwalk around the existing RSL Club to join existing river front walks.
The key challenges we could see for this project were exposed wave climate and flood impacts. Providing a walking, boating and recreational facility that would cater for all members of the community.
We overcame these challenges by reviewing design options, working with Council and the community to develop a fixed timber boardwalk solution.
The key features/points of difference to mention of the project are multi user requirements, operational and maintenance requirements, maritime appearance to suit the site and site history.
Ardill Payne & Partners were responsible for the Maritime and Structural Engineering as well as the Project Management for the project.
The budget for the project was $1m.
