Sor­rento FC up­grade set

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

THE clu­b­room for Sor­rento Foot­ball Club is get­ting an up­grade.

At last month’s meet­ing, Joon­dalup coun­cil­lors ac­cepted a $706,000 ten­der from Devco Builders for the re­fur­bish­ment of the Percy Doyle Re­serve fa­cil­ity to be fin­ished by Fe­bru­ary 9.

This will in­clude up­grades to the toi­lets, chang­e­rooms and main hall, as well as ex­ten­sions to the stor­age area and ve­randa.

Ten­ders were ad­ver­tised from June 17 to July 4, with 13 sub­mis­sions re­ceived.

City of­fi­cers rec­om­mended Devco Builders be­cause the com­pany “demon­strated ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence com­plet­ing sim­i­lar new and re­fur­bish­ment projects”, in­clud­ing the Wood­vale Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Sor­rento Com­mu­nity Hall, Duncraig Li­brary, Craigie Leisure Cen­tre, Robin Park in Sor­rento and Korella Park in Mul­laloo, along with the Iluka Sports Com­plex.

“It demon­strated un­der­stand­ing of the pro­ject re­quire­ments and has suf­fi­cient ca­pac­ity to com­plete the works,” a coun­cil doc­u­ment said.

“It also has de­tailed knowl­edge of the site as it pre­vi­ously re­placed the ceil­ing of the Sor­rento Soc­cer Clu­b­room and has also car­ried out main­te­nance works on that build­ing on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions.”

Coun­cil­lors also voted to ap­prove the over-bud­get ex­pen­di­ture of $78,200 to in­crease wa­ter pres­sure within the fa­cil­ity and to re­pair ex­ist­ing leach drains.

“These ad­di­tional works are nec­es­sary to suc­cess­fully com­plete the pro­ject,” the doc­u­ment said.

These ad­di­tional funds will come from the City’s Percy Doyle Util­i­ties Up­grade Pro­ject.

Re­fur­bish­ments are also pro­posed for the Sor­rento Ten­nis Club’s clu­b­room build­ing, in­clud­ing up­grades to the toi­lets, chang­e­room, bar and foyer, as well as im­prove­ments to its ex­ter­nal ac­cess.
