ADCO secured the $27 million RSEA park project for St Kilda Football Club via an early contract involvement model before proceeding on to a Design & Construct contract for the main works. Project work involved the construction of St Kilda FC’s new administrative and training facilities at their old grounds in Moorabbin. Stage 1 works included an open office with meeting rooms, breakout space and staff amenities, warm-up facilities and a gym, a basketball court, changing rooms, umpire facilities and an enhanced entertainment venue with public toilets, gaming machines, bistro and merchandise shop.
During the works, a temporary on-site relocation of the gaming machines was required followed by relocation into the new facility once works were complete. Stage 1 works were successfully completed well ahead of programme. Stage 2 works involved the construction of a new wing for the local community football department, including the Sandringham Dragons, SFL & SJFL organisations.
The new facility includes administration office with staff amenities plus coaches’ room, changerooms, warm-up area, recovery baths umpire facilities and the completion of the main entry foyer with reception, St Kilda FC museum, shop and a multimedia display board, landscaping, hardstand areas and a bus drop off lane. Part of the final works involve the addition of the AFLW office and training facilities.
