Since 1913 the Heatherton Recreation Reserve has been home to the Heatherton Football and Netball Club. They proudly boast John Coleman as one of their past players. Now they can also boast supremely stylish and comfortable A-grade club facilities and social rooms.
CBG was appointed as head contractor for the project in August 2013 which included a new 350sqm architecturally designed extension, and a renovation and upgrade of the existing facilities including accessibility compliance. Volume of works aside, the project had a tight and non-negotiable deadline; the start of the 2014 AFL season.
This project had the added complexity of maintaining public access to the facilities during construction.
Towards the end of the project a large package of additional works was incorporated into the work schedule with no change to the completion date. Careful and skilled management allowed CBG to successfully hand over the project a couple weeks prior to the start of the season.
The extension consisted of the installation of a new public disabled compliant bathroom, new change rooms with showers and toilets for the home and away teams, as well as the umpires, 3 new store rooms, first aid room, retaining walls, and water tank plumbing system.
Omtrack was effectively used for this project by CBG for City of Kingston. This electronic database lists all installed items, maintenance requirements and ‘as-built’ drawings for the works which the client can easily refer back to if and when the need arises.
