Jezzine Barracks Redevelopment, Townsville, QLD
Jezzine Barracks is a successful urban renewal project and significant tourist destination in the North Queensland region. The $40 million redevelopment was jointly funded from the Commonwealth and State governments and the Townsville City Council.
The 15-hectare heritage precinct commemorates the local indigenous, colonial and military heritage of the site. The site was in military use from 1885 to 2006 and has been transformed into a multi-use public parkland that includes a military museum, art gallery, coastal board walks with views over the Coral Sea, amphitheatre, playground, BBQ facilities and picnic areas.
Project Design Brief
Service cables were required at the site for lighting, security and communications. Designers wanted to minimise the visual impact of the underground service pits in the large areas of paving as 40mm deep granite was used in the landscape design and needed to be bedded into the service pit access covers.
- Single-part Pavermate®< steel recessed access cover and frame system
- Pavermate fabricated from discreet 2mm thick galvanised steel maintains the aesthetic continuity of the various pavement finishes
- Pavermate covers accommodate 40mm deep pavers
- Four high tensile steel M16 locking bolts per cover ensure utility enclosure security
