Buddhist Temple & Retreat
Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple
Currently under Construction
A new type of project for Tectvs and indeed for South Australia, the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Buddhist Temple and Retreat represents a substantial investment into the Southern Coastline of Sellicks Beach, South Australia. Key to the project is its centrepiece: an 18 metre tall granite Buddha hand carved from China alongside a 35 metre traditional pagoda structure.
The project uses traditional Chinese craftsmanship alongside modern techniques to ensure a tourism drawcard for the State that is forecast to generate in excess of 20,000 visitors annually. Tectvs was engaged due to their ability to manage the various difficulties and challenges of such a unique build. The project faces challenges with foundation and materials being unfamiliar to local trades, with the pagoda constructed out of chinese building and joinery techniques.
At 18 metres in height, the granite Buddha statue is set to become an instant icon for South Australia
The project is currently under construction yet has already made a big splash in the media, with numerous outlets documenting the unique excitement for such a project to come to South Australia.
