Marina Quays – Hope Island
Marina Quays is a master planned precinct development situated at the northern end of the Gold Coast. Knobel Engineers coordinated the master planning, detailed design, documentation, approvals and supervision of the precincts which included commercial and residential developments on canal front land. Aspects of the development included Villas, a Commercial Precinct, Urban Village, Town Centre, Marina Berths and Boardwalks. The design also included connections and integration with existing infrastructure.
Specifically, Knobel Engineers managed the civil design of subdivision and infrastructure works.
With the terrain of the site level with a high water table a gravity sewer was not feasible. Knobel Engineers coordinated the concept and detailed design of a vacuum sewer system. The vacuum sewer system reduced the impact to the environmental footprint with shallow trenching and by negating infiltration into the groundwater.
Knobel Engineers managed the construction contract administration for this project with a civil works project value of $20 million.
