Parks Community Centre Redevelopment, SA
Duration: March 2013 to August 2014
Value: $20 million
Contract type: AS 4300 Lump Sum Design and Construct
Summary: Built Environs modified, upgraded and extended a suburban community centre to create a theatre and childcare centre, new swimming pools, car parks, public plazas, soccer pitches, services, transformers and landscaping.
In managing the redevelopment of the large multi-building suburban community centre in the Adelaide suburb of Angle Park, Built Environs demolished a swimming pool and decommissioned and demolished 14 of 17 existing buildings. The project team then modified, upgraded and extended the three remaining buildings and constructed modern facilities for community use.
The Built Environs team managed the challenges in controlling the expansive 80,000-m2 site and delivering works across a high groundwater area.
The project was handed over in stages, starting with the centre’s swimming pools, which were opened in time for the 2013-2014 summer holiday season and culminated in the delivery of the centre’s professional-grade soccer pitch.
