The eagerly awaited redevelopment of the Cockburn Wetlands Precinct in Bibra Lake to upgrade a key community and environmental asset officially commenced in February 2020.
As the gateway to Beeliar Regional Park and a priority project for the City of Cockburn, the precinct redevelopment has been designed as a state-of-the-art integrated hub for sustainable environmental education, wildlife protection and community engagement.
NS Group is providing project management and superintendent services for the redevelopment of the area’s various infrastructure collectively used by The Wetlands Centre Cockburn, Native Animal Rehabilitation Centre [Native ARC] and Bibra Lake Scouts.
We will be working closely with all key stakeholders and project partners to successfully deliver this important hub which has huge potential to become a major drawcard for the entire south metropolitan region.
The project involves:
- Construction of a new Native ARC facility and renovation of the existing building.
- Renovation and extensions to The Wetlands Centre Cockburn building which will include an education room, relocated meeting room, educational artificial wetland and a nursery.
- Provision of new Bibra Lake Scouts shed with dedicated Rovers den.
- Additional parking and improved traffic and public access to and across the site.
- Creation of interconnected walkways and outdoor classrooms to support multiple uses and events.
- Inclusion of ecological sustainable design [ESD] features across the project.
