Owairtilla (Canteen Creek) sports centre
As part of the Building Education Revolution Program (BER), we supplied and built a 48metre x 28metre free span sporting complex which caters for a variety of ball sports including basketball, netball, tennis and badminton.
The building is an insulated free-standing covered outdoor learning area (COLA), with a concrete slab and sports storage shed.
The complex is complete with dog proof fencing and curtain style netting to the roof. The structure stands 8 metres high, the base of the building was carved levelled on virgin scrub and into the side of a laterite rock hill using a 30-tonne bulldozer and road grader.
Canteen Creek is a remote location, 300kms South East of Tennant Creek. We, along with our subcontractors, sourced all materials and transported them to the site.
During the project, 120m3 of concrete was mixed on-site and the floor of the complex was laid in just three days — a remarkable achievement!
The complex was delivered within six weeks, within budget even with various additional variations to upgrade the facility. These included water fountains, upper skirt nets around the complex and a concrete walkway across to the school.
