New Toilet Block at Penguin Island
Department of Conservation Biodiversity and Attractions (DBCA)
Penguin Island, Western Australia
RSA was selected to work with the Department of Conservation Biodiversity and Attractions (DBCA) with the new toilet block at Penguin Island WA. RSA’s engagement was to provide geotechnical, civil & structural advice for the DBCA design team and builder.
The Island is located off the coast of Western Australia and only accessible by boat, which posed challenges in design and installation of foundations due to the remoteness of the site. We work closely with specialised micro piling manufacturers across Australia and as a result, RSA realises the systems are the most suitable for this project.
The design team selected the construction materials for the project based on the DBCA design ethos and the durability requirements of this location.
Working collaboratively through the structural design with BDCA’s Architects and stakeholders to realise our combined goals. The elevated level of detailing ensured this project ran on time and to budget. In addition, feedback from the building contractor was positive to both RSA and DBCA, and look forward to working on remote projects together in the future.
