Southern Grampians Shire Council
September 2012 – March 2013
Aiming to increase the profile of Lake Hamilton and provide families and young people with a safe and attractive environment to play and interact with others, the Lake Hamilton All Abilities Playground and Foreshore Redevelopment is situated in the heart of Hamilton in the Grampians.
JMac was engaged as principal contractor to supply and install playground equipment, BBQ shelters, an amenities block, stone walls, timber decks and soft landscape works.
The project design incorporated a strong stone, water and timber theme reflecting Hamilton’s unique natural environment. During construction, JMac identified an opportunity to re-use excavated rock which provided cost savings and became a unique feature of the project.
The redevelopment delivered an accessible playground and foreshore area including integrated art works, new picnic tables and toilet facilities. The use of winding pathways and graded earthworks to link zones and equipment with gradients to meet access requirements is a special feature of the project.
