Stage 2 - Delivery will be done different! Let's get your hand dirty
Stage 1 was a new build under a building contract whereas Stage 2 of the Pavilion Project is a renovation and upgrade of the existing, old building. The project will be completed over a 12 to 18 month period and we intend for local skills , suppliers and community labor to be significant contributors to reduce the overall budget.
What's wrong with the old building ? - The change rooms, kiosk and storage areas do not meet current BCA and public access requirements. There has also been an increase in the number of female participants in junior sports over time and the facilities do not meet their needs.
The renovation will be done in 6 sub-stages as follows :
1. Front Roof
2. Front Veranda Paving.
3. Decommission old toilets and turn into interim storage.
4. Construct Rear Storage (two stages).
5. Change room interiors.
6. Upgrade Kiosk and join the two buildings.
Sub-stages 1 to 3 are non structural and will be completed as soon as possible. Fortunately, plumbing and waste are already in place but energy performance, hot water, showers and amenities all need upgrading.
How Much is Stage 2 going to Cost?
Stage 2 is expected to cost around $460,000 This is based on a full retail value if done under a building contract. However this time as we can stage the works can can use local skills and labor we should be able to do this for a lot less .Currently DaSRA has about $92,000.00 available made up of $80,000 from a community member underwriting a no interest loan, $4,500 from the opening and surplus of Stage 1 plus $7,500 from Mundaring Shire Council towards the replacement of the Roof.
DaSRA is pursuing State and Federal Government Funding grants and we hope for continued support from local businesses and organisations, the community and sporting groups.
