Alterations and refurbishments to Dinning terrace, entry, reception and offices
Gymea Bowling Club
Nov 2012- Jul 2013
Key project features:
- New Dining Terrace, Entry and Reception Offices
- Internal alterations and part refurbishment of existing Club
Successful project outcomes:
- Minimal disruption to the Club’s continued trading activities was achieved, notwithstanding the necessity for new temporary entry facility
- Cost effective Construction Management of subcontract prices maximised the Club’s ‘value for money.’ All trade prices were evaluated and agreed to by the Club prior to contract finalisation.
“Gymea Bowls” is the premier bowling destination in the Sutherland Shire. The original Club facilities were old and “dated” and not suited to contemporary bowling membership needs. A Masterplan was developed in conjunction with the Club’s Board and Management; this plan provided a new main Club entrance & reception foyer, extensive internal and external dining facilities and upgraded general lounge and gaming facilities. The Masterplan established a priority of independent stages that could be constructed separately over a period of time to suit the Club’s Capital Expenditure Budget. The Stage 1 Budget was established at $1.5m.
A unique feature of the project was the necessity for close co-operation between the Club’s (Management & Staff) and New England’s Site Management team to ensure that minimal interference occurred to the Club’s day to day operations and the adjacent neighbourhood residence and business activities; this was achieved by conducting regular site meetings to manage potential problems in advance. Traffic and pedestrian safety management issues were also discussed on a regular basis. Environmental considerations included noise and dust control management.
