The proposed Shute Harbour marina is to be located in Shute Harbour, adjacent Airlie Beach, in the Whitsunday Islands of Queensland.
Magryn have undertaken the design of:
- sheet pile wharf areas around the marina
- land fill areas for housing and retail/hotel development
- stormwater design
- road design
Shute Harbour is in a tropical cyclone-prone area and all design work undertaken took this into account.
The design also had to account for the existing soft marine clay which allowed potential for post-construction settlement, as well as the presence of underlying volcanic rock. Magryn considered these unique design parameters as well as other factors in relation to the construction methodology when designing the sheet pile revetments and reclamation area. The design of the sheet pile breakwater around the marina incorporated a trafficable glass fibre reinforced concrete pile cap.
Approvals have been received for the development and construction works are to commence shortly.
