The Leisure Park Balga Upgrades project was completed over two separate contracts worth $700,000 and $560,000 respectively, with our performance on the first contract being a significant factor in the decision to award the second stage of works.
The first stage of works was completed between January 2017 and May 2017 with these works split into four separable portions across the site including:
Secondary entrance compliance upgrade comprising of new landscaping, external electrical, security and hydraulic services, fencing and architectural metalwork;
New suspended slab and structural steel extension to form new chemical store;
Refurbishment of existing reception and office space comprising of new partitions, ceilings, aluminium & glazing, reception joinery, office furniture, floor coverings, feature ceilings, mechanical, electrical and security services;
Car Park compliance upgrades comprising of new footpaths and alterations to school bus drop off areas and new architectural metalwork.
Due to some areas of the design not working in practice on site we were able to re-design and value engineer the external compliance works resulting in savings for the Client. Despite the time taken for redesign, the works were completed on schedule and under budget.
The second stage of works is valued at $560,000 and was awarded in October 2017, this contract is split into two separable portions:
Refurbishment of changerooms and creation of additional changerooms including new floorcoverings to all lobby’s and corridors – these works were completed ahead of programme.
Re-tiling of pool concourse areas – These works were phased over a number of different stages to suit the operational requirements of the centre with all demolition works completed out of hours.
George Putland, Project Officer for City of Stirling provided the following feedback on completion of the project:
“Geared Construction were proficient and professional throughout this project. They were proactive in flagging issues as soon as they arose, and supportive in identifying solutions. The project was completed on time and under budget. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any similar projects, and would use them again myself”.
