Verandah Walk (Stage 2) – Southern Walkway, Townsville


James Cook University (JCU)


April 2016 – March 2017


The Verandah Walk project was designed and constructed to provide equitable all-weather access through fully lit covered pathways to create effective linkages across JCU’s Townsville campus during normal operation and after hours. Incorporated in the design is a series of “nodal” meeting and seating areas which allow students to study, collaborate and socialise in a landscaped outdoor setting.

RCP’s North Queensland office provided project management, programming and superintendent representative services to JCU throughout the design and constructions phases of the project. The construction of the walkway was required to be undertaken within a live environment and as such required continuous staging management to ensure pedestrian access was maintained.
