Pump House Point

Pump House Point, located on the picturesque edge of Lake St Clair, is an exceptional visitor accommodation facility that was created by converting a 1940s pump house and substation. The historic significance of the site, including its listing on the Tasmanian Heritage Register and the Environmental Management Zoning, presented a number of challenges that had to be addressed during the extension proposal.

Ireneinc was brought on board to provide its planning expertise to ensure a responsive extension that complemented the existing pump house building while respecting the site’s sensitivity. Our team worked closely with JAWS Architecture and GeoEnvironmental Solutions to create a design that would meet all necessary regulatory requirements, yet still deliver the desired outcomes.

After careful consideration of the constraints, we were able to successfully navigate the planning approval process. Our collaborative approach ensured that the extension is not only an aesthetically pleasing addition but also one that is respectful of the site’s historical significance.
