Work progressing well at Shell Cove on New South Wales South Coast

Work to complete the prestige Shell Cove Waterfront project is proceeding with Duffy Kennedy Constructions involved in two key projects in the complex.

Shell Cove is a significant new community project being created by Shellharbour City Council and Frasers Property Australia and will be finished in 2021.

Leading construction company Duffy Kennedy was responsible for the early works package for the project’s Waterfront Tavern now being completed by the Tavern’s owners completing their build.

According to Duffy Kennedy’s CEO Gavin Duffy, the company’s work includes foundations and structural work including the first elevated slab which cantilevers over the public boardwalk and marina: “This was a complex task in a prime waterfront location and maximises water views to the north and east,” Gavin said.

“Waterfront construction has a number of significant challenges (particularly environmental ones in such a unique location) but Duffy Kennedy with its highly skilled people has been able to meet these challenges in partnership with the developer, the Council and the design and engineering teams.”

“The Tavern complex and its environment will be used by thousands of people annually and will be a key part of this prestigious community complex being developed to benefit local residents, tourists and businesses for many years to come. Boat owners in particular will be delighted with the new complex as it comes to completion,” he said.

The second more substantial role undertaken by Duffy Kennedy at Shell Cove is full construction responsibility for stage 2 of Frasers Shell Cove Aqua apartment complex.

The world-class apartment complex comprises three levels of one, two and three bedroom residences located directly above the Waterfront restaurant precinct.

According to Gavin Duffy there are 45 units and 8 retail lots in the complex. Mr Duffy said that successful pre-marketing has meant that all apartments have been sold.

There is also an external carpark to service marina users and further infrastructure projects within the Waterfront precinct as part of Stage 2.

“Late last year we held a topping out ceremony for the apartment building with completion expected in 2021, despite the challenges presented by Covid.”

“We have been delighted to work on this very important south coast project in a rapidly growing area and look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with major developers like Frasers and will Shellharbour Council,” Gavin concluded.
