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.

This project involved the construction of an internal fitout of a new gym for staff and students and included new toilets, change rooms and showers.
A sports floor was also installed.
Project Coordination was engaged to demolish an existing toilet block and separate change room/canteen building that were being used by various sporting groups but which had become decrepit. In their place, a single facility was constructed in 10 weeks that included toilets, change rooms with showers, a canteen, an office and disabled shower and toilet.
This project involved the complete refurbishment of the first floor of the Eastlake Football Club. The first floor was also extended to the edge of existing structural steel, with a smoking balcony built under the existing roofline. A new lift was installed, which required the building of a lift well from within the Club’s gaming area.
Works included demolition, the installation of a new bar, upgrade of toilets, feature ceilings, electrical, hydraulic and mechanical services, floor finishes. A series of operable walls were installed to enable different rooms to be created to accommodate various sized functions.
Works were required to be carried out while the club was fully operational on the ground floor and offices on the first floor were being used. Over many years the club had carried out a number of extensions, and alterations to the point were the floor levels were out by up to 40mm. The integrity of the metal roof was also damaged causing leaks. Much of this damage was found on demolition and had to be fixed to allow for the weight of the operable walls.
Nominated in the 2008 MBA Awards for Excellence in the Category of Commercial and Retail Fitout, Refurbishment or Alteration $300,000 to $1million.
A brand new building was constructed adjacent to the Mawson Playing Fields for the Woden Valley Soccer Club.
The Club facility included toilets and showers together with a canteen and administrative and storage areas.
Work on this green field site was completed on time and on a tight budget for the Club.
The quality of workmanship and design coordination were the main feature of this very successful project.
The building was designed to be highly secure when not in use because of its location, and for it to be opened up to the playing fields for easy access by Club members. Behind the external roller doors are a series of aluminium doors and windows which make the clubhouse welcoming.
The existing beer garden to the north of the building was upgraded from a small uncovered area to a larger area comprising a new roofed section with a stage area for bands, entertainers, shows, meetings etc. A covered way was provided to protect patrons from any inclement weather. Some existing garden beds were removed; the area was terraced slightly and tile pavers installed with new planter boxes provided. The external perimeter was shaped and plants / mulch installed to act as screening to the area. Galvanised water tanks were installed to catch the rain water off the new roof and thus provide some assistance in the dripper system installed to water the new plants. Two of the tanks were fitted with a piped water feature that pumped water from a covered drain below the tanks up to the top of the tank where it then cascaded down the ribs of the tank and back in the drain below.
On the south side of the building, a new covered terrace was installed to provide a protected area for the patrons that smoke. This area was necessary as the new smoking laws made it mandatory that there was no smoking within club premises. Gas fired heaters were installed in both areas for the comfort of the patrons during the colder months. These were set with motion sensors that would turn the heaters on when a patron entered the area and then turned off after a short time when the area was vacated.
In order to maintain a water supply to the plant dripper system, a float switch system was installed in the lowest installed water tank. A water supply line was installed from the main irrigation system to the last tank. In the event of an extended dry period, where the tanks could not be filled with by the rain, the float switch would open when the water level was below 300mm, allow water from the irrigation main in and switch off when the level was back at 300mm thus maintaining a water supply to the plants.
This project involved the complete refurbishment of the ground floor of the Eastlake Football Club and the construction of new external terrace areas. The scope of work include demolition, new bars, joinery, feature ceilings, electrical, hydraulic and mechanical services, floor finishes, outdoor dining areas and upgrade of the main entry.
The project was made extremely difficult by having the Club continue to trade the entire time throughout the refurbishment. Detailed staging plans were negotiated with the Club to minimise the impact on their trade.
Nominated at the 2006 MBA Excellence in Building Awards in the category of Commercial Fitout.
This project involved the total ground floor refurbishment of the existing Club including a new poker machine area, poker machine lounge, bistro, new bar and the construction of two new external terraces. It was a requirement of the Club that all existing areas remain operational during the construction works therefore staging and segregation of the works ensured high levels of safety for the patrons at all times.
