Congratulations to Burnham Beeches builder Hamilton Marino for winning a Restoration of a Heritage Place Award at the National Trust Mornington Peninsula’s Heritage Awards for its careful restoration of The Continental Hotel in Sorrento.

The Trenerry Consortium has brought together the same team that delivered The Continental in Sorrento to Burnham Beeches, with expert Australian builders Hamilton Marino managing the build and restoration process, and global architecture firm Woods Bagot appointed as lead architects and designers.

Having received a Heritage Victoria permit for the entire proposed master plan and the green light for the initial Stage 1 component from Yarra Ranges Council, construction is set to commence in October 2023, once we receive confirmation that the Stage 2 Council Application is supported by Council. The team is looking forward to kicking off works on another significant heritage restoration project.
