WORLD Sporting Precinct design contract awarded

The contract to develop the detailed design for upgrading the WORLD Sporting Precinct in Bairnsdale to include eight netball courts, hockey and soccer complex was awarded by East Gippsland Shire Council on Tuesday, November 12.

This design work is essential to inform the cost and staging of the WORLD Sporting Precinct to allow the project to seek funding. The WORLD is planned to be expanded over time to become one of the main community sporting precincts in Bairnsdale and is now at design stage. Thomson Adsett Pty Ltd was awarded the $456,585 (excluding GST) design contract.

Council undertook an extensive analysis and review of the needs of the Bairnsdale sporting community as part of its Bairnsdale Sporting Facilities Plan 2018.

Once upgraded, it will cater for, in the long term, increased use and upgraded sporting facilities including eight netball court complex with shelters, seating, water fountains, fencing, floodlighting, footpaths, pedestrian movement zones, car parking, and landscaping. An upgrade and renovation to the WORLD pavilion/ change rooms will serve the netball and hockey user groups.

A built for purpose soccer precinct, will include two senior pitches and two junior unfenced fields, sub-surface irrigation and drainage, shelters, civil works, fencing, car parking, footpaths, pedestrian movement zones, landscaping, floodlighting, and a pavilion including change rooms and a social area.

Council would like to thank the East Gippsland United Football Club, Bairnsdale Netball Association and Bairnsdale Hockey Club for their invaluable input into this project to this point.

The realisation of the project requires $10.7 million funding. The detailed design work will provide Council with the information necessary to seek grants and other funding.
