CAIRNS SKATE PLAZA
When completed in 2007, the Cairns Skate Plaza was Australia’s largest action sports facility.
Situated on the city’s foreshore, the park was designed as an integrated dynamic landscape, tying in with the existing beach aesthetic while creating an accessible community space with a sports focus. The flexible action sports design included beach volleyball courts and car park that also function as events spaces.
“CONVIC WERE EXTREMELY ORGANISED AND STRUCTURED WITH THEIR WORK WHICH WAS REFLECTED IN THEIR HIGH QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP. I FOUND CONVIC TO BE A PROFESSIONAL AND INNOVATIVE CONTRACTOR AND WERE VERY DEMANDING WITH THEIR STANDARDS FOR SAFETY AND QUALITY. I UNRESERVEDLY RECOMMEND CONVIC’S CAPABILITIES TO ANYONE.”
