Seacliff Sports and Community Sports Hub
The City of Holdfast Bay commissioned a state of the art development for the community which included a hockey pitch, 12 court regional tennis/netball complex, public amenities, play space and new community and clubroom facility. The site is a former landfill with inherent stability and settlement concerns. Tonkin Consulting was engaged to provide project management, contract administration and superintendency services for the construction of the sporting hub which was delivered in three phases.
Tonkin Consulting carried out investigations to delineate the location of waste, characterise landfill gas/vapour and assess groundwater and fill.
Initiatives that have been implemented include the early identification of environmental requirements and the likely cost for the management of landfill gas, conducting an Expression of Interest to procure competitive ground improvement works and the management of onsite soils and waste to optimise budget expenditures.
Construction has provided the community with a well-planned and high-quality sporting and recreational facility to participate in activities.
