ClientSunshine Coast Regional Council

Place Design Group was commissioned as lead consultant in 2008 by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council to undertake master plan review, design development, stakeholder consultation and to prepare detailed tender documentation for the Bulcock Beach Esplanade Redevelopment project.

The Bulcock Beach foreshore is a unique site with significant environmental, recreational and scenic values. The project involved challenges associated with infrastructure renewal and upgrade in such a sensitive location and within a limited construction budget. Place Design Group coordinated and managed a comprehensive team of sub-consultants including structural engineer, quantity surveyor, geotechnical engineers, soil scientist, architect, sculptural artist, interpretive, access, hydraulic and electrical consultants through the design and construction phases of the project.  The design, furnishings, detailing and materials selection is both responsive to the site and its Pumicestone Passage marine location and will have enduring value to the community.
