Scarborough Redevelopment

The Scarborough Redevelopment will cover approximately 100 hectares of land, including 1.6km of Scarborough beachfront. The project will see an upgrade to the current facilities and amenities along the Scarborough foreshore to include a new surf lifesaving club and beach services building, an outdoor recreational area with skate park and climbing wall, entertainment areas, playground, commercial lots for future restaurants, cafes, retail space and offices.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to provide cost estimating services and tender analysis at the initial stage of the overall precinct, and has since extended services to include  estimating the commercial lots, and surf lifesaving club and beach services building. As the project progresses, our team will be available to assist with further services as required.


Aquenta was engaged to provide cost estimating and cost management services. Aquenta is currently undertaking cost management services including variation assessments, progress payment recommendations, financial reporting and value engineering. Aquenta is working closely with the project team during the value engineering process to assess value for money while the project team ensures final choices provide the best project outcome.

The Outcome

With project completion expected in March 2018 a number of areas are still under construction. Major milestones which have been completed include opening of the northern lower car park, relocation of the clock tower and opening of the transit hub.
