Pensar delivered an upgrade of the Macleay Island foreshore precinct to provide a dedicated ferry terminal, public boat ramp, parking, access roads, and public amenities.

  • A rock armour seawall was constructed to provide protection from tidal and storm surges.
  • Extensive asbestos contamination across the 8000 m2 site was carefully contained and removed.
  • Acid sulphate soil was removed or safely managed onsite.
  • 40,000+ tonnes of quarry materials were safely transported to the island by barge at a custom built landing facility.
  • The existing ferry terminal remained operational throughout the project.
  • A three-lane public boat ramp was constructed.
  • Parking facilities and access roads were substantially expanded an upgraded.
  • Despite the heavy construction, hazardous materials, and fragile setting, no safety or environmental issues were experienced.
  • To mark the completion of the project, Pensar commissioned and installed a public artwork by a Macleay Island sculptor at the site.
