Kingsway netball clubrooms to cost $2.8 million, scheduled to open in 2020

NETBALL clubrooms at Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex will cost almost $2.8 million to build, with completion due in February 2020.

The Wanneroo Council endorsed the concept plan for a single storey building at its November 14 meeting, but asked staff to investigate phasing the project to build unisex toilets by April 2019.

Councillor Domenic Zappa said that amendment to the recommendation sought delivery of the toilets “ahead of time”.

“The City has been fortunate to receive a $500,000 contribution from State Government; that money is sitting in hand at the moment,” he said.

“The provision of new and improved toilets is critical for all members.”

Elected members unanimously supported the amendment and the substantive recommendation, which also thanked the Wanneroo District Netball Association for its involvement in developing the concept plan.

The plan by Site Architecture includes offices, a multi-purpose room, change rooms, a first aid room, commercial kitchen and meeting rooms.

The project was originally expected to cost $2.7 million, but the report advised that the final concept plan resulted in a $88,100 increase in the estimated cost.

The November report said the existing clubrooms were built in about 1974, with public toilet additions built in 1982.

In 2013, an extra storage room and unisex toilet were built and last year a transportable toilet block was installed west of the existing clubrooms.

The report said participation in netball competitions had increased steadily, up to 839 teams in 2017 from 742 in 2015.
