Dampier Port Authority Housing

First Avenue, Onslow
Client : Dampier Port Authority
Completed : August 2014
Replacement Cost : $3,500,000

The Project involved the design and documentation of Residential Accommodation for the use by Dampier Port Authority (DPA) staff whilst working in Onslow for various periods.

Specific Design considerations needed to reflect the site’s location in a Cyclonic Area with potentially devastating tidal surge effects.

The Modular design allowed for the houses to be constructed in Perth and transported to Onslow with minimal on-site labour.

The design team made a conscious effort to ensure the final product did not appear as “Transportable” but is a “Permanent” and lively addition to the streetscape.
