With summer here there have been many days spent on the beach in front of the new Surf Lifesaving Club at Lighthouse beach. It is truly a great development and a real win for the community of Ballina.
The development was built by Bennett, and officially opened in July year. It will have a licensed cafe/restaurant, a meeting / function room and training rooms. What a great place for a wedding reception!
The building sits on the edge of the residual soil profile adjacent to the existing road with the coastal sand deposits bordering the foundations. Piled footings were used for the foundation design, with cast insitu concrete structures forming the bulk of the structural components of the building.
Lighthouse Beach has arguably the best views in the Ballina Shire, the cafe will be on the first floor, and it is believed that the lease has been acquired by the same company that runs the Pass Café in Byron.
The kiosk makes a great coffee so grab one and stake your claim on the sand this summer!
