New Esperance Jetty

At an Ordinary Council Meeting held on 27 March 2018 a tender for the Detailed Design Development for the New Esperance Jetty was awarded to H+H Architects.

The Jetty Detailed Design Process highlights the milestone steps included within the project. The step coloured red is where we are now; this flowchart will be updated as we move through the process.


Stakeholder Consultation (Completed)

The first stage of the Design Process is Stakeholder Consultation which includes Council, the Jetty Replacement Working Group, State Heritage Services and the Heritage Council of WA.

The Tanker Jetty is a State Registered heritage asset and the design of the New Jetty will need to acknowledge its past significance. Director of H+H Architects, Julie de Jong, has answered some frequently asked questions about the design of the new Jetty, and how heritage values can be acknowledged.

Review Previous Information (Completed)

H+H Architects review the existing information about the Esperance Tanker Jetty and the replacement jetty so far. This includes the Tanker Jetty's history, survey and workshop results and structural reports. 

Develop Draft Concept (Completed)

Following completion of stages one and two, H+H Architects entered the drawing room to develop a draft concept. Once the draft concept was completed it was reviewed by the Jetty Replacement Working Group and the Council after completing a 21 day commentary period where the Esperance community were given an opportunity to comment. The draft concept acknowledges how our social and heritage values were captured in the design while providing an indication of what the jetty will look and feel like. After it was endorsed by the Jetty Replacement Working Group and Council, the draft concept was developed into the Final Concept Design.

The comment period was open for 3 weeks and invited the Esperance Community to provide input on the Draft and participate in a survey indicating if the design was acceptable. Two surveys were undertaken, one was a Control Group survey that was sent to 2000 randomly selected addresses of Esperance Residents and/or Rate Payers, the second survey was Opt-in, containing the same questions and available to everyone and anyone. The results in both the Opt-in and Sample Group surveys reflected overall support for the Draft Concept Design, with 79.5% in support from the Online and Hard Copy Opt-in Survey and 83.9% in support from the Control Group Survey. The number of valid surveys returned were 1096 Opt-in surveys and 403 Control Group surveys (duplicate surveys were removed and have not been included in these figures).

The full results from both surveys are publicly available.

Develop Final Concept Design (Completed)

H+H Architects have worked on the Final Concept Design based on the feedback received from the community. The Final Concept Design Report was presented to the Jetty Replacement Working Group and the Esperance Shire Council in January 2019 before going to the Heritage Council in February 2019. Many new elements were worked into the design as a result of the community survey and recommendations from the Jetty Replacement Working Group. This design was supported by the Heritage Council, the Jetty Replacement Working Group and Council and H+H Architects can now work on Developing the Draft Detailed Design.

Develop Draft Detailed Design (Completed)

H+H Architects are currently working on Developing the Draft Detailed Design. This will then come back to the Jetty Replacement Working Group, the Esperance Shire Council and the Heritage Council of Wa before moving on to the Final Detailed Design.
