Wenty Leagues awarded Practical Completion – 8 weeks ahead of schedule
December 20, 2018
I HAVE TO SAY IT’S THE BEST LOOKING CAR PARK I HAVE EVER SEEN!
On 30th of November 2018 the Wenty Leagues team was awarded Practical Completion, 8 weeks ahead of schedule and with the club thrilled to have their new carpark in time for Christmas trading.
The project was first tendered in early February 2017 against a panel of 5 Builders and given the preferred contractor ‘tag’ in June 2017. We were later advised that Lipman won the project from 2nd place, a great outcome, on the back of our considered methodology, reputation and earning the client’s trust that we were the right builder.
Following a long-drawn out authority approval process involving new designs to divert the existing sewer and HV, the approval of our build methodology by Sydney Water to form-up the ground floor deck over the existing stormwater channel, we commenced an 8 week early works package on 30th of October 2017 which we completed in December 2017.
On 30th January 2018 the main works kicked off and the team quickly grew. Under the capable hands of our Site Manager, Pat and Sub-Foreman, Tim the project was off to a great start, and with the help of some dry weather by mid-march 2018, Lipman was leading the charge being the first of 3 builders working at the club to finish our groundwork and progress into the super-structure. It wasn’t long until Tim and Pat had fine-tuned their structures programme, achieving a productive pour-cycle.
By September 2018 the feature façade installation was under-way, removal of slab back-propping well advanced and the finishes trades had commenced to the external on-grade works ensuring a smooth completion in November 2018.
I would like to personally thank our client Wenty Leagues Club, Pure Projects and especially our team and subcontractors for their sacrifice and efforts to manage the constant 3am starts! And in some cases midnight finishes! It’s been a most enjoyable 12 months and a pleasure to come to work each day with every one of you. PROJECT MANAGER
