Gladstone Ports Interpretive Centre

Client: Gladstone Port Corporation

Focal point of an activated parkland precinct, opening the foreshore to the Gladstone community and region


The Project

The Gladstone Ports Corporation has had plans for a Port
Interpretive Centre in development for several years. The
Centre will make Gladstone’s rich maritime history and heritage
accessible to the community. It is envisioned as an engaging
cultural attraction that will provide an educational and cultural
experience, contributing to the life of the town for both locals and
visitors, supporting tourism to the region.

The ongoing success and viability of the Centre will be closely
integrated with the life and activation of the surrounding precinct.

Following concept planning which fully integrates with landscape
design and considers precinct programming, the Centre and stage
2 of the East Shores precinct is now funded for development.

OUR ROLE

Positive Solutions and project partners The Maytrix Group provided
analysis and supported the precinct Master planning, resulting in
the strategic location of the Centre and integration of café and
function use to support the broader objectives for community
engagements.

Planning also considered activation through programming options
for the precinct and informed operational forecasts to support
project funding.

Maytrix will continue to work closely with the Ports Corporation
and project team through the realisation of this development. Our
role includes the development of a functional design brief for the
commercial areas, design liaison and documentation of catering
service areas, business plan and procurement of commercial
operators.
