Behind the Scenes as Construction Gets Underway

Bar model - North Lakes Sports Club

While the earthmoving equipment is in full swing on the site of the future North Lakes Sports Club, club officials were last week inspecting progress of a different kind at an inner-city warehouse in Brisbane.

As part of the design process, builders Rohrig Group have created life-size polystyrene models of the bars, kitchen and main service areas in their Albion warehouse.

CEO Kelvin Patch said the process was an important step in the design process that enabled the building committee and management team to walk-through the design and check the functionality of all key service areas.

“It’s a great final step in the design process,” Mr Patch said.

“The 100% scale model allows us to do a final check to ensure we have adequate provisions in all our service areas before the foundations are laid.

“Any potential issues can be ironed out and adjustments made early in the process, avoiding unnecessary and expensive changes further down the line.”

Meanwhile, visitors travelling past the Flinders Parade site will see a hive of earthmoving activity, with work on the foundations now underway and construction progressing to schedule.

“Contractors have made good progress on the early works component of the project since commencing on the 23rd May and are set to move into the main construction programme in July.”
