This project saw the construction of a new 78 berth marina extension to the existing yacht club at Belmont to satisfy increased demand for new boat moorings within Lake Macquarie.
Northrop was engaged by the builder under a Design & Construct contract to undertake the structural design. We provided cost effective design solutions and long term durability that assisted the builder in winning the contract.
A primary consideration was the ease of construction from floating barge. We utilised components which could be easily man-handled without the need for heavy lifting equipment and were able to be tailor made on site to cater for piling installation tolerances.
The marina extension is now a highly utilised facility servicing the local boating community.
