arete Australia was awarded the fantastic Toowoomba Sports Club Gaming and Club Refurbishment project on a lump sum contract.
An exciting project in the heart of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs Region. The main focus of the refurbishment was on the ground floor with an expansion to the existing gaming room which encompassed the pokie lounge, café, bars and amenities area.
The works continued upstairs with a modern refresh to the dining areas, DOSA and a stunning expansion to the outdoor space. Working closely with the client and architect to maintain the working environment of the club, arete and our subcontractors were able to programme all works in a manner that minimised as much disruption as possible to the clientele.
The entry to the club was relocated to Russell Street which included the removal of the existing escalator and stairs with the new escalator installed in close collaboration with the council allowing for street closure and traffic management with some specialist crane skills to put the escalators in place.
The finished product has a stunning new entry foyer with some fantastic key architectural features designed by UltraLinea Architecture.
arete is very excited to have had the opportunity to work in such a historic venue and a key destination for Toowoomba.
