The Stage 1 precinct of the Bunbury Waterfront project for which Thompson was the land surveyor has begun construction.
Bunbury MLA Joe Castelli recently held a ceremony to mark the beginning of Forward Works at Koombana North.
It is the first stage of the Landcorp development to turn the area into a world-class waterfront development.
Initial works completed in stage 1 included bulk earthworks, construction of a buried seawall for future storm protection, and landscaping of the adjacent foreshore and ski beach area for community use.
In a media statement, Mr Castelli said the project is a result of a collaborative effort between the State Government, its agencies and departments, local authorities, the private sector and the community.
“We listened hard to what people had to say about earlier proposals, and as local member and chair of the Bunbury Waterfront Taskforce, I took up the cause to find new ways forward, and bring to fruition this vitally important revitalisation of the city’s waterfront,” he said.
Thompson are the Bunbury surveyor for this and many other local projects moving the South West region forward.
