Collaboration is the key when many come together to work on the one project
Earlier this year we introduced you to our latest commercial project – the construction of the brand new $2.5 million Glenworth Valley Multifunction Centre at Calga for our client Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures.
Located in the picturesque Glenworth Valley, the function centre, which has just hosted its first wedding, provides an elegant venue for weddings, birthdays, conferences and other functions. The centre includes a restaurant with a fully functional commercial kitchen and cool room, in-house catering, private function room, covered terrace, a lift, service bar and an alfresco dining area.
Our team has been working very closely with numerous stakeholders to achieve our client’s vision on this project. As project managers and builders, it has been our responsibility to ensure the entire project runs seamlessly, which can be a challenge when many stakeholders are involved. However, through a process of careful coordination, teamwork and collaboration we have met our client’s brief, which was to not only deliver a stunning finished project, but to also provide them with a flexible staged delivery. The staged delivery was necessary due to the fact that the popular tourist attraction was still open to the public while construction of the new function centre was in progress.
During the final stages of the project our client had a desire to start using the centre for weddings, corporate functions and school holiday groups. Our team and all stakeholders on this project put in the hard yards to make this happen. In fact we worked day and night to ensure the function centre was ready to host its first wedding in September, well before the required handover date later this year.
A bespoke philosophy was adopted for the entire project. Expression Cladding in a Sorrento profile was used for the exterior of the new function centre. With its slim, symmetrical and gently tapering lines, the cladding has been applied horizontally to create a contemporary farmhouse look and feel. Stunning surrounding architectural elements of the structure include a crushed stone finish to the alfresco dining area and Boral polished concrete flooring throughout. The building also incorporates Woodform architectural cladding, local sandstone sourced from Gosford Quarries and many other design elements that were hand crafted on site from locally sourced materials.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the following stakeholders who have been working with us to bring this project to fruition:
