UNSW David Philips Field Redevelopment
Mcachlan Lister Project Management
Kane Constructions was awarded the $9.0 million lump sum contract in September 2010 to deliver the David Philip Field Redevelopment for the University of New South Wales.
Located in Daceyville, the facility is currently the home of the UNSW Rugby Club, Football Club, Touch Club, and the Cricket Club uses the fields in summer for its lower grades and for its practice facilities.
The goal of the David Phillips Field redevelopment project is to create a high quality and well used home of sport for the university.
The new DP field will provide:
* A water based synthetic Hockey Pitch,
* An artificial grass, multi-use Soccer pitch,
* Four tennis courts,
* Three grass fields. In winter they will be used by rugby, football, baseball and touch, and in summer will provide two cricket fields
* A clubhouse / amenities building containing four change rooms, a first aid room, two referees rooms, storage rooms and a function room with kitchen and kiosk,
* A smaller "western" grandstand and changerooms servicing the new rugby no 1 field,
* Two indoor cricket practice nets,
* Outdoor cricket practice facilities, the current facilities will be upgraded,
* Upgraded lighting to accommodate night matches.
The project incorporates the latest in environmental sustainable systems including solar hot water, rain water harvesting, and a storm water absorption system which returns run-off into the Botany Aquifer. Irrigation of the grass fields and the hockey pitch will come from harvested rainwater and the aquifer.
Kane completed this project in late 2012.
