Storage solution on the horizon

We have been working with the North Avalon Surfriders Association to find a storage solution for their equipment.

The proposal to extend the existing amenities building at the north end of Avalon Beach was considered and a concept plan is now available for comment.

The storage space use will be limited to the organisation's general storage needs, including equipment for its monthly competitions and regional events. Stored items will include: surf boards, marquee, tents, flags, tables, BBQ and First Aid equipment and a trailer.

Design inclusions:

  • roofline and height aligned with existing amenities building
  • exterior colour aligned with existing amenities and blend with surrounds
  • size - approximately 27 sq. metres (comparative to < double garage)
  • walls and roof insulated to control sound and heat
  • ventilation panels on the north end of the building
  • roofing finished in Colorbond®
  • roller door
  • existing mural on the northern wall will be reinstated following storage extension.

A need for storage

The active club (North Avalon Surfriders Association), which operates from the carpark at the north end of the beach has a trailer with all its equipment but this is not sufficient for their storage needs.

As the trailer is primarily stored off-site, logistical issues are often encountered as the trailer is not available onsite when needed, and often requires relocating from where it's stored.

To remedy this problem, the club approached us with a proposal to build an addition to the existing beach amenities, extending the building to the north to provide storage for their equipment.
