PRINCES STREET MARINA | NEWPORT
- Completed: 1996
- Builder: Construction Pacific
- Area: 1000m2
This project involved the rebuilding of a 1970’s steel framed marina workshop. The building was stripped back to the original frame and a new floor structure was inserted within the 2- storey height workshop space. The structure was re-clad in compressed fc sheet, and a new cantilevered verandah wraps around the building providing access to upper level offices. This addition breaks down the façade creating 2 distinct levels. The new roof sheeting extends down the upper section of walls to further reduce the building’s scale. The refurbishment upgraded the marina facility and provided an extra 500m2 of additional floor space within the existing structure and received a BHP award in 1996.
