Playscapes that inspire. Maritime Cove Community Park – Port Melbourne

Marcus Construction has enjoyed continually working alongside J&H Price in both the construction and maintenance of the Maritime Cove Community Park in Perc White Reserve in Port Melbourne.

“This is a playscape where children and their elders can let their imaginations run wild.” – Tristan Filippone, Project Manager, Marcus Constructions.

Throughout the three month project, Marcus Constructions utilised multiple trades to help bring the maritime-themed park to life. The team installed world renowned Richter Spielgeräte play equipment which included wooden bridges, poles and rope structures. The yellow steel marine buoys, re-purposed channel markers and statement silver slide provide a respectful reference to the maritime history of the area that both kids and adults can appreciate.

The Marcus team also installed several steel and timber boardwalks throughout the area.

And if tackling the playground isn’t your style, the park also boasts an area complete with workout equipment for exercise-lovers to enjoy.

With stunning views of the Webb Dock and Melbourne CBD surrounds, the Maritime Cove Community Park is a must see for all ages in South East Melbourne.

Seamless landscaping at Monash University, Queens Ave – Caulfield

The Queens Avenue structure has transformed the arterial campus road at Monash University Caulfield into a pedestrian thoroughfare that melds perfectly within its environment.

Completed in 2018 by Marcus Constructions, the Queens Avenue boardwalk “transforms an existing road into a social and dynamic space through its connection to a series of activity areas such as cafes, outdoor workshops and retail outlets.” – TCL Architects

The installation’s structured steel archway and timber boardwalk design work together to complement both the organic parklands and modern university buildings that surround. The large boardwalk installation also gives students and faculty members a pleasant place to study and socialise outdoors year-round.

Marcus Constructions are proud to have worked collaboratively with Glas Landscape Architects, ACE Contractors and J&H Price to deliver the refurbishment of Queens Avenue to the Monash Caulfield campus.

Throughout the four months of construction, Marcus assisted with the installation of:

– Structural steel and timber decking
– Architectural steelworks
– Retaining wall
– Custom gas enclosure fabrication and installation

Not surprisingly, the grand Monash structure received the AILA Victoria Landscape Architecture award in the Civil Landscaping category last year as a part of Open House Victoria.
