The refurbishment of the Gold Coast Adventure Precinct included the demolition of the existing gym, corridor and roof, multipurpose outdoor courts and storeroom on the end of the existing show court. In doing this, new pipelines were required to direct the flow if water out into the council drainage network.
This is where SPEL were able to quickly and cost-effectively assist, by providing the civil contractor with 140 meters of pipe, delivered to site in 3 days from order, ready for installation.
The new precinct will involve the construction of a new gym, amenities, reception area and building housing 2 multipurpose courts.
Cumulatively, it took the civil contractors 1 ½ days, including the excavation work to install 140m of pipe, working out to be roughly 13m laid per hour. The pipe was lowered into the trenches by hand thanks to the product’s light weight.
The civil contractor was impressed with the ease at which the pipe was installed and joined together. With this in mind, the contractor not only saved time onsite but also saved significantly with onsite costs.
