A couple of years ago McConnell Dowell was selected to construct a new 196m concrete and timber pier to replace the existing 1960s concrete structure and appointed Hollow Core Concrete to prepare shop drawings and produce the precast concrete components. Once construction of the new pier was complete the team demolished the old concrete structure. The new pier was opened in March 2007. Consultants to the project were ADAW Australia, Maunsell Australia and The Department of Sustainability and Environment. The project was a winning entry in the Engineering Projects category of the 2005-2007 Excellence in Concrete Awards.
