Disability access upgrade including the installation of a new lift shaft and lift, disabled access ramps and paths and internal refurbishment works
Project Coordination completed the comprehensive refurbishment of the Ground Floor of the Ainslie Football Club in 2016.
The construction works were undertaken in two stages to enable the club to be fully operational throughout the entire refurbishment process. The first stage included the Fireside Lounge and Bar, Fireside Terrace, Gaming Lounge and Bar, toilet facilities, reception and entry porte-cochère. The second stage included a complete new commercial kitchen, refurbished toilet facilities, and creation of the Limestone café bar and brasserie restaurant.
The end result is a contemporary club which focuses on intimate spaces and the latest in design features. It has a timeless style and approach—from the light fittings and features to the furniture and spaces.

The University of Canberra engaged Project Coordination to carry out the refurbishment of Building 5, Level B in accordance with the design of Lyons Architects. The refurbishment created a well lit and welcoming interior with open spaces, offices, meeting rooms, learning spaces, a kitchenette and family room as well as many other areas. Level B is characterised by an open paved internal courtyard containing two large planter beds and the refurbished “Futuro” reflective space. A new feature entry canopy provides the building with a bright, interesting focal point to highlight the entrance.
The Building 5, Level B works incorporate a number of design and building innovations, including; Full height triple glazed windows from Germany surround the internal courtyard, providing the space with good natural light and achieving great thermal and acoustic performance.
The use of natural materials in an innovative manner is a feature of the refurbishment works with ash glazed timber partitions providing the offices with light and softening the look and feel along the corridor areas of the building. The bench and booth seating elements were custom fabricated on-site using ash plywood and the faces were then stained to create an innovative unique feature. A series of “Ronstan” catenary cables, carrying LED down-lights crisscross the courtyard at high level and provide an interesting ‘starry night’ feature for people occupying the building after sunset. The assembly and refurbishment of the “Futuro” in the Level B courtyard is an innovative design solution that has provided the building with an exciting, interesting classroom and learning space. The “Futuro” is air conditioned and features individual upholstered seating with power and data provisions.
Yovelton House is the last federation era farmhouse in Albion Park Rail. It has a proud historic association with dairying in the area. Shellharbour Council owns the house which is used as a community facility but needed heritage restoration work.
The Council engaged Project Coordination to carry out the heritage refurbishment and repair works to bring the historically important building back to a high standard so that it will endure much further into the future.
Shellharbour City Stadium in the Croom Road sporting complex in Albion Park is a multi-purpose facility catering to a variety of sports and community events. The stadium has had water ingress problems since construction in 2000 reducing its effectiveness.
Shellharbour City Council has entrusted Project Coordination with bringing the Stadium up to its full operational capability by modifying and strengthening the roof structure and replacing the existing roof sheeting and ancilary components.
The Project involved the upgrade and refurbishment of ‘The Social’ cafe at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre.
The works included the installation of a new commercial kitchen and restaurant alterations that meet the current food premises code requirements. Also included in the works was the provision of a new entry to the cafe area.
The project at Thirroul Surf Life Saving Club involved the replacement of the existing structurally unstable concrete roof with a new treated timber truss roof sheeted with a corrosion resistant metal roof.
The project also included an extension to the male bathroom section of the club house and roof slab treatment to the existing boat shed.
The upgrade of the Unanderra Fire Station for Fire and Rescue NSW commenced in December included refurbishing of the existing Fire Station to provide new amenities, station commanders office and meal room facilities. The works also included a full upgrade of both electrical and hydraulic services.
This project consisted of the complete demolition of the ground floor bistro toilets enabling the expansion of the existing bistro to cater for the clubs growing needs for dining. Extensive alterations were required to the kitchen exhaust systems and hydraulic services that passed through this area. New floor coverings were installed together with new a ceiling, all to match existing. The curved bulkhead over the existing bistro servery was modified once demolition had taken place. Additional air conditioning units were required in the area to balance the air and to maintain the comfort level for the patrons.
Being self contained, this area was able to be demolished with little disruption to the dining area. The kitchen exhaust alterations had to be carried out at times that did not disrupt the pastry cooking that utilised the area in the kitchen affected by this work. This made this work extremely difficult as the time available was extremely limited.
