Team Spirit: Select’s role in transformative Geelong project

Select Architects is working with Kane Constructions to deliver the new Geelong passenger terminal for Spirit of Tasmania.

The iconic Spirit of Tasmania is relocating its Victorian operations from Port Melbourne to Corio Quay.

Once complete, the facility will include a world-class three-level boarding ramp for cars, caravans and trucks to board simultaneously, an impressive terminal building providing improved amenity for passengers and staff, and the establishment of a boarding area that includes marshalling for 600 cars and separate parking area for 150 semi-trailers.

GeelongPort appointed principal contractor, Kane Constructions, to undertake construction of the passenger terminal building in November 2021.

The new passenger terminal will provide a contemporary and comfortable experience for the hundreds of thousands of passengers who travel on Spirit of Tasmania every year.

Kane Constructions Project Director Sam Birdseye said the company was “thrilled to be partnering with GeelongPort, APP, Brand Architects, Select Architects, and the extended consultant team to deliver this landmark project.”

Select Architects Peter Serra said: “We are so proud to be part of the team working on this transformative project for Geelong. Spirit of Tasmania’s relocation to Geelong will provide a huge boost to the local economy at a time when it is much needed.”

The project is well underway, with GeelongPort expecting to welcome Spirit of Tasmania passengers to Geelong this spring.
