Project Details

Alder Constructions was contracted to undertake the first stage of the long awaited refurbishment and upgrade to the Gold Coast Turf Club.

The Club had not had any major works done on it for many years and the increased number of people attending race days and functions that were now held at the facility demanded that it be upgraded and modernised.

The project provided our Team with significant challenges in terms of the amount of works to be completed in an extremely tight time frame, with works having to be handed over for 2013 Melbourne Cup Day.

In addition to this, a large proportion of the works had yet to be fully designed by Racing Queensland’s Design Consultants at project commencement. To address this, Alder provided a design and construct service to enable the works to be fast tracked.

Although not contractually required, Alder delivered the works in 3 stages to provide the Turf Club with earlier access for trading. Alder Constructions’ is extremely proud that whilst the works presented both logistical and physical challenges to our Team, it was successfully completed by Melbourne Cup Day.

Everyone that has come in contact with the Turf Club since the renovations have been completely impressed with the changes and improvements undertaken. More importantly, our client, Racing Queensland as well as the Gold Coast Turf Club, were both extremely happy with the end result.
