Costly hole in the wall

Alpine Observer - - News - By JUSTIN JEN­VEY

STAGE one of the new Alpine Events Park mul­tipur­pose fa­cil­ity is set to be de­layed by up to six weeks after the ex­ist­ing ground floor of Bright’s Pi­o­neer Park pav­il­ion was found to have ma­jor struc­tural flaws.

Two and a half weeks ago the project’s build­ing con­trac­tors, Bar­ton St De­vel­op­ments, raised con­cerns about some of the build­ing’s struc­tural com­po­nents which were to be re­tained as part of the new work.

Two in­de­pen­dent struc­tural en­gi­neers who later car­ried while another ex­tra was for a new toi­let block.

“With the added costs we’re now go­ing to be in a less gen­er­ous po­si­tion at end of the project so some of those things might have to go into a fu­ture project plan with a re­quest for fu­ture fund­ing.”

The coun­cil ex­pects to re­ceive a re­vised en­gi­neer­ing de­sign from the struc­tural en­gi­neer to­day.

The plans will then be pro­vided to Bar­ton St De­vel­op­ments which will pro­vide con­firmed cost­ings for com­ple­tion of the re­me­di­a­tion works.

DE­LAY: Works were pro­gress­ing on stage one of the new Alpine Events Park mul­tipur­pose fa­cil­ity un­til ma­jor prob­lems were found with the ex­ist­ing struc­ture.
