“We were looking for a product that was suitable to withstand coastal environmental conditions and that was also sustainable in nature. Replas provided a durable and sustainable solution that will ensure the boardwalk and viewing platforms are functional for many years to come,” explains Joe Coco, Director at Edgewater Shores, a newly sought after coastal land development in the heart of Diamond Beach in New South Wales. A new viewing platform has been installed using recycled plastic decking, Enduroplank™, and furniture in the park area for locals to enjoy. “Edgewater Shores is the first development along the NSW Mid North Coast to achieve an Enviro Development 6-leaf accreditation,” explains Joe. “Sustainability has been at the forefront of the development strategy since the inception of the project.  Where possible, throughout the construction of the development and also through our design guidelines, we have tried to promote the use of sustainable products and methodologies.” Enduroplank™ is a sturdy, long lasting and virtually maintenance free decking product, as an ethical alternative material. Ideal for commercial applications, Enduroplank™ is especially suitable for marine environments as salt water will not corrode the material, even when submerged. Replas has also created an easy to install system, “the installation of the Replas Enduroplank product was quite simple. The uniformity of the product allowed for easy replication of the installation process along the walkway,” said Joe. When asked about the communities feedback on the installation, Joe explained their support, “the community around Diamond Beach and Edgewater Shores is very supporting of our sustainable initiatives.  People have responded well to the aesthetics of both the park furniture and the boardwalk and viewing platforms.” Joe also explains that where possible, they will seek to use Replas products again, “it provides a functional, aesthetically pleasing, durable and sustainable product that assists us as an organisation and improves our sustainability targets.”
