The Lakes

The “The Lakes” development was originally planned for 1500 hotel rooms in buildings of between 3 to 8 storeys, plus recreational and food/beverage precincts surrounding a central non-tidal lake.

As part of the development, Burchills Engineering Solutions carried out civil designs for site reclamation, internal/external works for roads and services, revetments and boardwalk designs, and stormwater drainage. Burchills were also responsible for obtaining all necessary planning, engineering and environmental approvals, along with contract administration for the bulk earthworks and initial civil works contracts.

Following site construction Burchills, in conjunction with Buchan Group Architects and SPLAT Landscape Architects, obtained planning approval to over-ride the Planning Scheme for the “Lakeview at Mermaid” Local Area Plan for a mixed use of:

  • retail (3000m²);
  • commercial display premises (3600m²);
  • residential (1500 units);
  • food outlets (3900m²); and
  • Tavern/ bottle shop (3156m²).
