Stone pavers from Adbri Masonry were used to install a versatile public area and walkway at the Devonport Surf Life Saving Club during its recent upgrade.

The upgrade of the Devonport Surf Life Saving Club and surrounding facilities was awarded the Bruce McKenzie Landscape Award at the 2014 Think Brick awards ceremony held in Melbourne recently.

Located at the iconic Mersey Bluff Plaza on Tasmania’s North West coast, ‘The Bluff’ as it is known locally, is a popular spot for swimming, sunbathing, picnics in the park and Surf Life Saving.

Welcomed by surf club members and the local community, the upgrade consisted of a number of family friendly sites including a new playground, barbecue facilities, public plaza and car park. Designed by Hansen Partnership in Melbourne, the project used non-directional pavers of varying colours to create a coastal inspired design where colours transition from the foreshore pavement to the sand and sea beyond.

Hansen Partnership’s design team was awarded the $10,000 prize for the landscape design.

About 6,500 square metres of Adbri Masonry’s Trihex and Quartz stone pavers were used to create the public area and walkway.

Karl Wood, Marketing Manager, Adbri Masonry said Hansen Partnership and the Davenport Bluff Precinct project are very worthy winners of the 2014 Bruce McKenzie Landscape Award.
