Removal of the roof skylights and replacement of the roofing material and ventilation upgrade.

98 Allison Crescent, Menai - behind Menai Shopping Centre.

Project timeline

Project start:  to be confirmed

Expected completion:   to be confirmed

Project background

We have been progressively undertaking staged repairs to the roof of the Indoor Sports Centre to eliminate all rainwater leaks.  The current works will ensure the roof is completely watertight.

Project scope

The replacement of roofing will include the removal of skylights and an upgrade of the ventilation system.  Above the playing courts new insulation will be installed.  The planned work will include:

  • Removal and disposal of existing roof sheets, skylights and insulation
  • Installation of new roof sheets, insulation and associated works
  • Installation of new ventilation
  • Sealing of eaves, soffits and verges
  • Provide a complying roof access system.

Project schedule

During the design process it has been discovered that the roof structure does not have the capacity to support the additional load of the ventilation system.  This prevented work on site starting on the scheduled date. Options to strengthen the structure are currently under investigation and a solution is being developed.

The project has been delayed by this setback and a revised completion date will be communicated when the full details of the additional work has been evaluated. We understand that this work may have an impact on the users of the centre and apologise for the inconvenience.  We appreciate your patience while we carry out the remainder of these essential works.

Expected Site Establishment – to be confirmed

Expected Practical Completion – to be confirmed

Impacts during construction

  • Council Sport Services will work closely with the impacted sporting clubs and the Centre Manager to minimise disruptions to sporting fixtures wherever possible.

We understand that this work may have an impact on the public and apologise for the inconvenience.
