WORLD NEWS Koolewong designer awards turnkey contract AUSTRALIA: A new world-class marina is to be built at Koolewong on the central coast of New South Wales. The 50-berth facility (positioned above) will be developed adjacent to the existing Boathouse Restaurant, a popular spot for locals and tourists. Superior Jetties has been selected to engineer and build the marina to a design created by Les Binkin and Symantha Suprain. Binkin, co-director at Marmong Point and designer of the Trinity Point Marina on Lake Macquarie, says the project has been at least six years in the planning and will be a destination in itself, boutique, but open to the public. “It will be a sophisticated, friendly marina, aiming to attract berth holders, passing cruisers and locals for a bite to eat and enjoyment of the beautiful landscape,” he notes. Incorporated in the design are ten catamaran berths and ten visitor berths but there is space to double the size of the marina in five years if permissions are secured. Superior Jetties was appointed to the project following a competitive tender process and will handle all aspects of the engineering and design detail, marina construction, architectural gangways and the main entrance way. “Superior has the expertise, the runs on the board and the team to do the job,” Binkin asserts. “They are a very personal company. CEO, John Hogan ensures staff are available to us at all stages along the way, sharing information and progress, which is important to me as the designer.” Koolewong will be the first marina Superior creates using a combination of its Elite system, with a concrete deck, and the SuperElite system. This also has concrete walls in the higher impact areas. Aluminium walers and elastomeric hinges provide flexibility and are low maintenance. The company’s inhouse engineering department will supply a custom-designed gangway to suit the site and complement the nautical theme of the owner’s vision for the entrance way. Hogan believes the marina has a great future. “Judging by the numbers of boats and moorings already using this portion of Brisbane Waters, it’s a superb anchorage, naturally protected and expansive. It is an ideal location for a marina,” he says. Plans progress for Victoria waterfront UK: Developers of the new Victoria Marina waterfront in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, are preparing to progress the project now that Cowes Harbour Commission has completed the new outer breakwater. Development partners Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (C&NM) and Westcourt Real Estate are working with architects Conran & Partners on drawing up plans for various renovation, conversion and newbuild works. This will see the creation of new residential and hospitality properties alongside the regeneration of the Columbine Building and Victoria Barracks, arranged around the new marina and within an extensively landscaped setting. Under the plans for the Victoria Quay development, the Columbine Building – famous for sporting the world’s largest Union Jack – will undergo a phased refurbishment and will house a variety of marine-based operations under the overall tenancy of Camper & Nicholsons Marinas. It will also provide office space for a number of other local and international businesses. C&NM chairman, Sir Christopher Lewinton, said: “East Cowes has a long tradition as host to the Royal Family with their deep passion for the Island, and more latterly to the many tourists and business people who pass through this busy island gateway. Our plans for Victoria Quay will build upon that distinguished past while bringing new impetus to the area as a centre of employment in the marine and associated service sectors.” “We will create new public amenities and an attractive place to visit and for the people who live there. And we are delighted to be re-establishing a long awaited operational presence in the UK for Camper & Nicholsons,” he added. David Margason, managing director of Westcourt, states: “Our aim is to deliver a comprehensive regeneration to fulfil the long-held plans for East Cowes, transforming the area for the benefit of local residents, businesses, visitors and the town as a whole. The plans for Victoria Quay will allow for a new, landscaped square centred on the Victoria Barracks, with new family and visitor amenities set against the backdrop of the 400 berth marina. The project will also deliver a range of open market and affordable homes.” - January/February 2016 13 MW2016JanFeb.indd 13 05/01/2016 09:32:07
