What are KCSH planning to do at Corbett Park?

KCSH plans to complete renovation and remedial work on the clubrooms within the existing footprint to bring the building up to code and provide a fit for purpose community and sport facility for the people of the Kaitake district.

Importantly, the upgrade will include changing facilities to accommodate women’s sport not currently catered for and essential to the current needs and future health of our community.

The scope of the work planned includes:

Exterior - weatherproof the building:

  • Replace roof,
  • install new windows,
  • reclad upper level,
  • repaint lower level.

Interior – ensure safety compliance and fit for purpose facility:

  • Strengthen foundation and downstairs walls,
  • reconfigure downstairs to create female shower & change facilities,
  • repaint downstairs
  • reline upstairs interior walls and ceiling,
  • replace floor coverings,
  • relocate bar area,
  • renovate toilets (unisex)

Lighting - replace unsafe towers and inefficient current lighting system

Notes. The remedial and renovation work will not increase the footprint of the current clubrooms. There will not be a commercial kitchen installed. It is intended to keep the outside of the building free of any signage from sponsors etc and the cladding and roofing material and design will be sympathetic to the environment.

Building Work

Initial work required to achieve a viable project was completed by local people representing BOON (plans and drawings), Nagel Consultants (structural engineering) and Bruce the Builder (design and quantity surveying). Each of these companies committed $10,000 worth of value in kind to enable the project to become a reality.

In recognition of their investment and commitment to the start-up phase and knowledge of the work, the 3 companies have been provided with Gold Partner status and appointed as architect, engineer and lead contractor to the project.

The lead contractor will give priority to the use of sub-contractors, tradespeople and suppliers based in the Kaitake district. 

The current timeline plans for detailed design work to be completed in May/June, building consent work and final pricing in July/August and construction to begin in October, following the winter sport season.
