Surf Coast Shire Council acknowledges the financial support of the Victorian Government and the Surf Coast Football Club (SCFC) for this project. The Victorian Government has provided $2 million and the SCFC has committed $100,000.

PROJECT UPDATE – MAY 2022

Construction progress has progressed well throughout the past few months. The building is taking shape now that the social spaces are enclosed and the tiered seating structure is in place. It’s exciting to see the development taking place and picture what it will look like when completed. Rendine Constructions have recently constructed all the structural steel as well as cladding the external walls & roofing. The next stage of works will involve plastering and fit out of the internal spaces as well as forming the surrounding paved areas. Construction is on track for completion in late June 2022

We’ll provide more updates as the project progresses.

About the project

The Grant Pavilion Extension Project evolved from a Community Project Proposal initiated in August 2018, following a request from the SCFC to support their proposal for a new pavilion.

An investigation considered two options, one of which was the project in its current form.

The Club pledged to contribute $100,000 to the project which was a significant commitment. The Club also lobbied during the 2018 State Election and was able to secure a $2 million commitment from the Labor Party. Funds were received mid-2020 and the design was initiated in December 2020, with Kelly Architects of Geelong the successful tenderer.

The Project Control Group has included representatives from the SCFC, the Victorian Government via Sport and Recreation Victoria, and Council.

What will the project involve?

The scope of works includes:

  • New SCFC social room on the first level, including a canteen/kitchen and administration space
  • Elevated tiered seating directly outside the indoor social space, with viewing to all pitches
  • Elevated tiered seating on the west side of the building to provide better viewing of the Parwan and Goim pitches
  • Two new change rooms compliant with accessibility and Football Victoria guidelines
  • Two new umpire/referee rooms compliant with accessibility and Football Victoria guidelines
  • Two refurbished umpire/referee rooms compliant with accessibility and Football Victoria guidelines
  • Four new accessible toilets for use by players, officials, spectators and community members
  • Large soccer storage space
  • New shared user group storage space
  • Shelter for ground-level spectators beneath the upper level tiered seating overhang
  • New footpaths for access around the building and to all spaces

Throughout the works contractors will aim to ensure that user groups have access to as much of the existing facility as possible.

Plans for the other side of the Pavilion

The 2018 concept design included a future second stage to the south and west of the pavilion, mirroring the SCFC project. The second stage project is on Council’s list of future capital works along with a range of other priorities. The timing for the project is unknown, and would require a similar funding model to the northern side in order to proceed. 

Community engagement

The design process has involved the SCFC throughout all stages. The Club and Council have collaborated on a design to meet club needs and that of other user groups and Council.

User groups of the precinct and Grant Pavilion were provided with the preliminary designs and given an opportunity to make comment.

Previous Project Updates

PROJECT UPDATE – FEBRUARY 2022

Following the Christmas and New Year industry break, construction progress has resumed and continued smoothly over the past few weeks. Rendine Constructions have recently constructed all the columns for the new grandstands as well as preparing the surrounds for the new change rooms. The next stage of works will involve forming the new concrete grandstands as well as erecting the steelwork for the new upstairs social space. Construction is on track for completion in June 2022. 

 

PROJECT UPDATE – DECEMBER 2021

Construction progress has continued smoothly over the past month. Rendine Constructions have recently constructed the slabs for the new change rooms and nearing completion of all blockwork for the new change rooms on the ground floor. The next stage of works will involve erecting the steel columns for the grandstand on the first floor. Works will stop for the Christmas break and resume the week of 10 January 2022. 

 

PROJECT UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2021

Works are now well underway, which is great to see. Rendine Constructions are installing sewer connections and other plumbing services from the existing building to where the new change rooms and bathrooms will be located. They have recently completed the majority of the demolition on both the ground floor and first floor of the pavilion where the new kitchen/canteen will be. The next stage of works will involve constructing the slabs for the new change rooms plus erecting some of the steelwork for the new grandstand seating areas on the first floor.

 

PROJECT UPDATE – OCTOBER 2021

Rendine Constructions have confirmed that works will start on Monday 25 October. Temporary fencing and site amenities will be installed on Friday October 22. The previously advised start date of 6 September was delayed due to the construction industry lockdown and other requirements being worked through. We're very excited for construction to be starting!

Council officers have worked with the first level pavilion user groups to find another location for their programs for the duration of construction. Officers have worked with the Surf Coast Football Club and other Clubs who use the lower level of the pavilion to accommodate all summer season access and storage requirements.

Please note in the Site Plan that there will be an impact to traffic access on the east side of the building, with the turning circle and several car parks out of action for the duration of works. There will also be a site compound on the west of the building to assist with Rendine's access and construction activities throughout the project.

We’ll provide more updates as the project progresses.
