Kane Constructions was awarded this $33m fixed price lump sum contract in mid-2007. The scope of works involved the construction of a brand new entertainment complex for Harness Racing Victoria located in Melton.
The main building consists of a 43-room hotel, multiple function rooms of various scale, numerous meeting rooms, a Sports Bar with on-course/off-course betting counters, a bistro restaurant and Gaming Room. A separate 3000m2 Horse Stalls building and a 1500m2 Facilities building for the clients operational were also constructed as part of the contract.
An extensive civil works package comprising car parks, lighting, recycled water tanks, retaining walls and landscaping was also undertaken.
The project was completed ahead of proagramme at the end of 2008, allowing for an earlier than scheduled opening in 2009. Racing commenced in mid-2009.
Working with Kane Constructions was an enjoyable process as the project continued to manifest. Kane's extensive construction experience was invaluable during every aspect of Tabcorp Park. From bidding, planning to execution, we felt comfortable working with Kane Constructions every step of the way.
