HILAC Roof Tender Awarded

15 February 2018

Works to replace the roof at the Hamilton Indoor Leisure and Aquatic Centre will begin early next month as Council last night approved the awarding of the works contract.

The successful tender was Millers Plumbing Pty Ltd, for the amount of $528,000 GST inclusive.

The contract was awarded by the Mayor and the CEO under delegation in order for the project to commence as early as possible in 2018 and to minimise disruption to HILAC User Groups.

Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Mary-Ann Brown said Millers Plumbing was chosen for their proven experience with similar projects.

“Millers Plumbing specialise in roofing remediation and therefore have considerable experience on projects of a similar size and nature. They demonstrated a good understanding of project requirements and a solid risk management approach. They propose to complete the works in one financial year and we are really looking forward to seeing the works commence,” Cr Brown said.

Works to be completed as part of the capital works program on the roof structure include removal and replacement of existing roofing on various sections and improvement works to other aspects including replacing sky light sheets, painting, rust removal, gutter cleaning and removal of all redundant metal work from the roof.

A 10-year roof maintenance program will be implemented once all capital works have been completed to ensure ongoing management of the facility’s roof.

This project was advertised previously in July 2017 but the tender process failed to attract a complying tender. As a result, the tender specifications were reviewed by staff in consultation with SMEC Engineering (who produced the options analysis for the HILAC roof works) prior to the tender being readvertised in late 2017.

“Council staff will work with affected HILAC user groups to minimise disruption while construction is taking place. While there will be some changes to arrangements in the interim, we all acknowledge this work is long overdue and once complete will help build HILAC’s reputation as a premier regional indoor sporting facility,” Cr Brown said.

Works are expected to be complete by 30 June 2018.
