Bellingham Marine Australia (BMA) recently completed another project in the
BMA was contracted by 'Abigroup' and the Gold Coast City Council, to design, construct and install a floating public access pontoon as part of the Gold Coast City Council's major
$42 million rejuvenation to the existing Broadwater Parklands at Southport on
the beautiful Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast City Council's project brief for the Southport Broadwater
Parklands site was to reconnect the Gold Coast's Southport Business
District with the Broadwater whilst incorporating a sense of community, regional identity, and celebrate the history of Southport.
Features of the pontoon include high stability, for public safety, a life
performance to exceed 20 years, high 600mm freeboard and a structural fixed
and hinged gangway system of 63m (206ft) in length, consisting of 3 fixed
gangways and 3 fixed intermediate landings leading to a 20m long hinged
gangway, all of which was designed to be aesthetically pleasing, from not only
the water and Parklands area, but also from the adjoining luxury high rise
apartment towers, dotted throughout the area. Detail design was done by local
Brisbane Company, International Marina Consultants, directed by Bellingham
Marine's Brisbane Office.
