Whitsunday Aviation Village

This unique project combines a private airstrip with both commercial and residential development.

These kinds of development are not unique to the world, but this project could potentially be the first of its kind in Australia, offering residential aviation uses on a fly-in / fly-out basis with housing allotments accessible directly from the taxiway.

The location of the Aviation Village offers an excellent opportunity for keen aviators as a stepping stone to the Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef and North Queensland. The location of the Aviation Park provides excellent access to the Airlie Beach Town Centre, the gateway to the Whitsunday Region.

Burchills has been involved in the project from concept to completion, undertaking all the civil and structural design and documentation, and working very closely with the owner to ensure the project goals were achieved.

Careful co-ordination and consultation with the relevant authorities have ensured that the intended project outcomes comply with not only the Local and Government Planning Policies but also the Civil Aviation Authority Guidelines. The main lobby features a curved concrete staircase reinforced using non-tensioned stressing cables laid to suit stair profile.
