THE AUCKLAND FERRY TERMINAL
Contributing to the Redevelopment of Downtown Auckland
We were engaged by Auckland Transport to design six new ferry berths on the western side of Queens Wharf as part of the Downtown Ferry Basin redevelopment. Our work also included alterations to improve public access through the existing ferry terminal building and to the wharf beyond.
Three new gangways inside spacious glazed shelters provide access to the six ferry berths. One side of each shelter sits on the wharf, and the other side sits on piles out over the water, connected to the wharf at one end by a new concrete landing. Each aluminium gangway is 33m long and 6m wide, with the top end hinged off the concrete landing and the bottom end rolling on floating pontoons that rise and fall with the tide.
