The following three projects stand out due to their complexity and achieved outcomes:
Gracetown Residential and Eco Tourist Project, Gracetown ($50M construction)
The Gracetown Project is set to become Australian’s most ecological sustainable coastal development, applying numerous technical and urban design innovations to significantly reduce its development footprint, water and energy consumption, whilst harmonising and integrating with the surrounding National Park.
The Gracetown Project includes a Water Reclamation Plant that recycles both black and grey water to supply non-potable water requirements for 300 residential dwellings and a 50 key eco-tourism facility, with excess water being used to water public open space and purifies a contaminated aquifer. The Water Reclamation Plant will be operated by a private company, which is a first in Australian.
All developments will be power by solar panels, green power and/or wind turbines and designed to meet a minimum 5 star energy rating to significantly reduce energy consumption.
To achieve Gracetown’s sustainability vision the Project has required significant input from the Project Manager with extensive planning and public consultation experience.
Brighton Mixed Development Precinct, Mandurah ($120M construction)
The Brighton Project included the redevelopment of the historical Brighton Hotel building, encompassed an entire city block and was central to the rejuvenation of Mandurah’s CBD.
The developers Cape Bouvard had originally sought to demolish the degraded Brighton Hotel, which had been damaged by fire and neglected. Jayson negotiate a creative development/financial incentive package with Cape Bouvard and the City of Mandurah that included rates concessions, land transfers, development bonuses, car parking rights, site master planning, infrastructure upgrades, heritage grants and employment development scheme. This was a complex project that involved extensive legal agreements, negotiation with numerous land owners and provision of a 1.0 M grant from the City of Mandurah in exchange of 3.5 M worth of land, infrastructure improvements and car parking facilities for the City.
When completed the Brighton Project will include 3 restored heritage buildings, new Brighton Hotel, 20 Commercial tenancies, 10 storey residential apartment, central town square, 400 public car parking bays, full redevelopment of a city block and redevelopment of 15 existing commercial tenancies.
This project has provided a significant boast to the Mandurah’s CBD redevelopment and required a proactive, persistent and creative approach to be applied to achieve the desired outcomes.
Bunbury Silo’s Redevelopment Project, Bunbury ($50M construction)
An innovative and rewarding project as it involved converting the Bunbury Silo’s structure, which was heritage listed into a mixed use residential and commercial development. The project involved extensive negotiations, partnership between the Heritage Council, Developer, LandCorp and City of Bunbury, infrastructure upgrades, development bonuses and concession in order to achieve the transformation of the dilapidated structure. The completed award winning development has been recognised for its innovative design approach, whilst respecting the Silo’s heritage integrity.
The planning and implementation of this project required a proactive and creative approach, particularly as the retention and restoration of the Silo’s structure was seen as a real impediment to its redevelopment.
