The Port Bouvard Surf Life Saving Club at Pyramids Beach in Dawesville has been operational since 2003.
The facility was opened in May 2010 and as part of the original design, allowance was made for the stage two second storey extension to include function and social facilities.
With funding grants from the Federal Government, State Government (Peel Development Commission) and City of Mandurah, the club added the second storey to its headquarters in 2019.
The $2.1 million addition of the second storey to the club includes a large function area and additional training areas for club activities and amenities.
Moddex supplied handrail and balustrade to Bistel for the egress stair, lobby stair and balcony.
Products/configurations used on project:
- Commercial Balustrade Conectabal CB30
- Commercial Balustrade Conectabal CB45
Why was Moddex product selected?
The builder was familiar with Moddex product from previous experience on another similar Life Saving Club Project. Through selecting Moddex, Bistel were able to limit fabrication costs and benefited from the fast lead times experienced in both production and installation.
Moddex also was able to offer project support from client consultation, CAD design right through to installation.
Moddex has recently completed a series of handrail and balustrade systems, both internally and externally on our Port Bouvard Surf Club project. The Moddex system really worked in this application and was in keeping with the theme of the building, being “an industrial look.”
The organization was a pleasure to do business with and always delivered to the time frame required by the project team and the client.
Most importantly due to their high level of shop drawings, all components of the Moddex railing and balustrade systems fitting perfectly within the structural columns and floor anchoring.
All steps in the process, from when we commenced discussions with Moddex, to measurement, purchase order and installation on site, was executed promptly, safely and as scheduled without any hinderance or confusion. The whole process went quickly and smoothly.
The area was highly sensitive to safety of the public and patrons if the club. The installation team were very safe in their manner of installation and very efficient. Moddex left us with one high quality balustrade / handrail system.
