Wenty Leagues is excited to unveil its redevelopment master plan which will see the biggest changes ever in the club’s 50 year history.
Exciting Milestones Reached
Construction has passed the halfway mark for the multistorey carpark and thanks to consistent dry weather, is still on track for completion later this year. The parking area is a significant upgrade to the Club’s facilities and will offer over 780 car spaces. After taking a tour inside the work-in-progress, there are significant advantages immediately revealed about the structure. The first noticeable characteristic is the style of flow for cars moving through the levels. The style allows drivers to scan levels quickly for any availabilities making searching for spaces easier. As drivers progress through the levels, there is also significant room for turning the vehicle up or down the ramps to reduce incident and when pulling into an actual space, generous line distances
create more room between parked cars.
To go along with its functional qualities, attention to detail has also been placed on aesthetic appeal. The front façade includes a striking design which immediately draws attention from passer-bys on the Great Western Highway. This piece will be constructed in the coming months at the same time
the elevators will be installed. Finally, construction will begin on an undercover walkway from the carpark to the Club which is monitored by CCTV to ensure safety and security for all our members and visitors.
On the opposite side of the Club, a major milestone was reached during the construction of the multi-outlet casual dining precinct. On Friday 6 July, a decking out party with ADCO and subcontractors commemorated the main structure being built for the Ground, Plaza and Level 1. Now, it is onto the next stage – structural steel works which will begin to form areas including Alfresco Dining, Pavilion and the roof.
From these photos you can see the second level of the multi-storey car park is now complete and if dry weather continues, the whole structure will be on track for completion in late 2018. The parking area is a significant upgrade to the Club’s facilities and will offer 780 car spaces, two lifts connecting all levels, CCTV security and for added convenience, a counter at the entrance advising
patrons of available spaces.
Construction is now well underway on the next stage of the Master Plan as the excitement builds during this important milestone for the Club. The new multi-storey carpark will slowly be rising out of the ground as Lipman, the builders for this project progress with construction. This car park will provide approximately 780 new car spots and will eventually be joined to the new foyer via a covered walk way. For now, the expected completion date is late 2018.
As our bowlers enjoy the finished new all-weather bowling green, our second group of builders, ADCO, have established onsite. They are in the process of removing bowling green #1 (that was closest to the club) in readiness for a new exciting addition to the Club. Below ground an extension to the warehouse, back of house areas and a central kitchen will be constructed. At ground level a new multi-outlet casual dining precinct will be constructed. This area will feature four new outlets with seating for over 850 people, a larger, improved Kids play, an Alfresco dining option and a mixed use function pavilion. Completion of this stage is due in March 2019.
This building work has resulted in the Smith Street carpark and entrance being closed and we ask members to follow the directional signage to the new carpark and club entrance.
Finally, the hoarding that has been erected near the main entrance to the club hides the construction of administration offices that will be relocated from the roof of the club. This area of roof top will be converted into a modern function centre that will provide much needed function and meeting space for our members looking to host social events and our corporate customers looking for to hold their meetings here at Wenty Leagues.
All this work has come with some changes to how we do things and some unavoidable inconveniences to our members and their guests. We thank you for your patience during this work and please be assured we are working tirelessly to ensure the disruption is kept to a minimum. We remind members that the courtesy bus is available for your convenience and bookings can be made by contacting the club Reception.
We’re building on our Master Plan which means changes are happening in and around the Club.
As parking is reduced during this construction stage, we remind members and visitors to allow a little extra time for parking.
The under-croft carpark is now a drop off area only and is no longer available for parking.
The courtesy bus and buggy have been relocated to this under-croft area.
The entrance to the club has not changed and clearly marked signs are in operation for easy access for members and visitors.
The Smith Street carpark and entrance is now closed. This area is a base for the builders on site.
