The Task and Our Role
The Warners at the Bay development took an old barn near Lake Macquarie and refurbished it into a modern bar.  The transformation of the site included the design and construction of a waterfront café, bottle shop and the Warners at the Bay Motel, with 50 luxury units.

During the design process, Lindsay Dynan was required to deliver an innovative solution to overcome the site’s mine subsidence issues.  The designers created a low-cost and effective footing system that allowed any future mine subsidence ground strains to move underneath the slab without inducing any stresses into the slab itself.
