With demolition works now complete, it’s full steam ahead for the construction of the new Juniors Clubhouse over upcoming months.
The work is being carried out by local building company, TLF Developments, who previously completed many successful projects for Twin Towns, including hotel room refurbishments at The Sebel Twin Towns, the Harbour Terrace Balcony, 1st on Wharf Tavern entry remodelling, the Banora alfresco and Juniors’ outdoor Pavilions.
Project Manager, Scott McClintock from TLF Developments, said he is pleased with the progress to date and at this stage, construction is on track for a November opening.
“We expect the footings to be poured in early May and the structural steelwork should start going up in early June.
“Once this happens, locals will begin to see their new Clubhouse taking shape, week by week, as they drive past the site,” said Scott.
An army of around 80 or more local tradies are expected to be involved in the Juniors project: concreters, carpenters, cabinetmakers, electricians, plumbers, plasterers, painters, landscapers, renderers, glaziers, roofers and more.
Twin Towns CEO Rob Smith said he and the Board of Directors were pleased to see this major contract awarded to a local company employing local trades.
“Money put back in the hands of the local community is money well spent and at $12 million, it’s a significant outlay.
“Employing locally is investing locally. As well as supporting local tradies, the project will also give back to many local companies who will supply the tonnes of building products required to complete the new Club,” said Rob.
Twin Towns will provide members’ updates as major milestones are reached during construction.
