Timeline Feb 2018 - Jun 2018

As part of Ballina Shire Council’s Coastal Management Plan for the Shaws Bay area, Synergy were engaged to remediate extensive shoreline erosion that had occurred along portions of the eastern arm of Shaws Bay. 

Remediation works involved the reconstruction and repair of existing rock walls that had deteriorated due to tidal impact. Additionally, rock groyne construction was undertaken in the waterways to safeguard the existing beach reserve.

As part of the reconstruction works, native vegetation was planted to stabilise the affected areas that extended across the constructed rock wall and groyne.

With support from the client, an opportunity was recognised to provide recreational and amenity improvement for the site and as part of this Synergy were engaged to construct 1,500m2 of pedestrian concrete pathway, shower bays and seating pads.

General environmental upgrade was also undertaken that included the establishment of 6,000m2 of turf and health and safety management of existing mature vegetation.

“I would highly recommend Synergy for any contract works. Their attention to detail and willingness to work out any design issues and recommendations for improvements is to be commended.”
