Jezzine Barracks Redevelopment

Year: 2015

Location: North Ward, Townsville, QLD

Client: Local Government

Specs: 2015 Excellence in Infrastructure Award from Stormwater Queensland

Summary

The Jezzine Barracks Redevelopment project was successfully delivered to Government clientele, and received a 2015 Excellence in Infrastructure Award from Stormwater Queensland.

Jezzine Barracks Redevelopment is an example of a highly polished and well integrated regional parkland that combines stormwater management infrastructure with a $40 million total project budget.

The project required thoughtful consideration concerning flooding, drainage, usability, water quality, heritage stormwater features, aesthetics, and a sense of place.

Our services extended from civil design of roads and drainage, water and sewer, pathways and bio-retention basins; to structural design of retaining walls, concrete elements, and interpretive art.

Premise played an integral part in the successful delivery of this world class recreational area. The $40 million parkland development is a strategic extension to the former Strand redevelopment, providing a pedestrian link between the Strand and the Rowes Bay foreshore.

This iconic project provides a true destination for the wider community and encapsulates both the Cultural and Military Heritage of our region.

Design Elements:

  • Our services extended from civil design of roads and drainage, water and sewer, pathways and bio-retention basins; to structural design of retaining walls, shade structures, concrete elements, and interpretive art.
