Paraburdoo Community Hub
Fortescue Place, Paraburdoo
Client : Shire of Ashburton
Replacement Cost : $8 Million
Hodge Collard Preston were awarded the contract to design, document and provide contract administration assistance during the construction phase of the Paraburdoo Community Hub project which includes construction of the new Multi-purpose Centre and car park and refurbishment of existing Sports Pavilion and car park for the Shire of Ashburton.
The project included master planning of the central town precinct to ensure the new facility is well integrated into its setting and complementary to the surroundings while ensure the existing amenities are not compromised in any way. Designing a public building in a regional location prone to climatic extremes and with a lack of local labour and readily available building materials has meant that careful consideration of construction methodologies and materials selection as well as Life Cycle costing has been imperative to the design.
Development of an efficient and well thought out floor plan for the Multi-purpose Centre which satisfies the requirements of a number of independent stake holder / user groups like the swimming pool, various sporting clubs and independently operated gymnasium demonstrates out ability to work collaboratively with the Shire and the user groups and perform within a tight time frame and project budget.
The project is currently in design development stage with contract documentation to be completed at the end of June.
