Gold Coast Marine Centre is a unique facility that provides boat owners and builders a place to work on their craft through hiring the Centres space and equipment. The facility is located within the Gold Coast Marine Precinct at Coomera, home of the world famous Riviera and Mustang brands. The building spaces had to be flexible in nature due to the wide variety of boat building exercises that were anticipated for the facility.
Westera Partners were commissioned by the client to deliver both architectural and engineering services for this project. We were also involved in Project Administration which included the tender process, builder negotiations, post tender and construction supervision. Our drafting team worked closely with the project owners to ensure every aspect of the brief was covered in detail. Special design consideration was given to the hire spaces including heights. Gantry cranes were attached to the structural steel portal frames to assist tenants lifting heavy materials. Westera Partners worked very closely with the steel fabricators to ensure an economical design was presented which proved to be the most competitive design available on the market.
Gold Coast Marine Centre has become a popular facility for boat builders and owners. The designed spaces have been well utilised by the tenants. The project has had a number of additional stages through the years to supply the increase in demand for this type of facility.
