JMac Constructions awarded Kuranda Village Revitalisation

Located north of Cairns, Kuranda is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination with visitor numbers increasing daily. With the town’s transient population growing, JMac Constructions has been awarded the $1.3 million project to redevelop Therwine Street to enhance the atmosphere of Kuranda Village. The project involves demolition of the existing streetscape, and the design and installation of new urban infrastructure and soft landscaping that will tie in with the township’s heritage values. Upgraded retaining and stormwater management systems will also be installed, and new pavements constructed to use for alfresco dining. JMac Constructions worked collaboratively with Mareeba Shire Council to develop a construction solution which best suited the client’s needs and budget. The BMD Group’s vertical integration strategy saw BMD’s design division, Empower Engineers & Project Managers work with the project team to deliver a design that would upgrade the village’s infrastructure to suitably service visitor demand. The project is expected to be completed mid-2018, weather and construction conditions permitting. Click here to see Council media release.
