Charles Riley Reserve Redevelopment

Charles Riley Reserve Redevelopment

About the project:

Porter Consulting Engineers were engaged by the City of Stirling as civil engineers for the redevelopment of the Charles Riley Reserve in North Beach. The reserve is a regional open space that caters for many community groups and sporting clubs including AFL, athletics, soccer, cricket, hockey, rugby and tennis. The master plan included demolition of existing facilities, construction of a new club house, realignment of ovals, additional parking facilities and all associated services.

Project detail:

Our scope included the detailed design and construction administration of the main carpark, two external car parks and oval extension works as well as the sewer mains extension for the new club house facilities.  

The detailed design included liaison with the City and consultant team for the new club house, including co-ordination of all common services and building elevations to ensure seamless tie in.  

Staging external construction works around school holidays greatly reduced potential conflict.  Perimeter fencing also provided an additional barrier to the community.  Staging various activities and timing the works accordingly ensured the continual use of the reserve during construction.

Charles Riley Reserve holds the northern suburbs ANZAC Day ceremony and after detailed discipline planning, risk assessment and programme preparation by Porter Consulting Engineers, the City decided in December 2012 to defer the oval bulk earthworks post ANZAC Day 2015 to ensure the site was presented neatly for the very important ceremony being the 100 year celebration. The project was completed in October 2015, with an estimated project budget of $10M.
