Think relaxation, sun-filled days, infinity pool, and spectacular coastal views. The Yeppoon Lagoon Precinct is the region’s newest signature tourist attraction offering a picturesque 2500 square-metre resort style lagoon pool overlooking Yeppoon Main Beach for visitors and the community to enjoy.
The resplendent precinct has contributed to the creation of more than 150 jobs during construction, it also will help inject ongoing revenue and boost the region’s economy in the future. Landscape Construction on this project was extensive on multiple fronts, covering scope in both Hard and Soft Landscaping to an exceptionally high standard.
As with any infrastructure project the building blocks start with the hard scape elements, and this project was no different. Penfold Projects was responsible for producing elegant off-formed concrete terraced seating, accompanied with a range of decorative concrete and tiled surface finishes throughout the project. Offsetting the slick hard surfaces is the natural look of timber decking, to enhance the coastal vibe.
The expansive hardscaping has been softened with an elegant oceanic colour palette of ground cover plantings combined with an array of advanced tree installations including Coconut trees, Pandanus and Cuban Royal Palms, just to name a few. As always, the magic above must be complemented below with soil preparation, sub soil drainage, sub terrain irrigation system to ensure this landscape will be viable for generations to come.
The Yeppoon Lagoon Precinct was a great opportunity for the Penfold Projects team to showcase our ability to overcome multiple obstacles, under tight programming. Experienced in running remote infrastructure projects this was no different in providing logistical challenges, often requiring our team to source material from all over the country while coordinating a busy rotating roster for our experienced and dedicated full-time staff.
Penfold Projects is very appreciative of this opportunity to be involved in this showcase tourism project through the principal contractor Woollam Construction. The Yeppoon Lagoon precinct is yet another signature project successfully completed by our team, and we are excited to see it develop into the new cornerstone of the Capricorn Coast.
