When it comes to winning a flag, the City of Prospect really gets behind its local footy team! The North Adelaide Football Club recognised a need to enhance the training facilities at their home ground, Prospect Oval and Sarah was promptly drafted.

The project converted the existing grandstand into a new gym and function centre. This also involved transforming the downstairs players’ facilities, to include new meeting rooms, amenities, plunge pool and medical areas.

But, it wasn’t an easy victory. This complex structural project required an enormous amount of planning. Sarah needed to build the new structure around the existing grandstand stage, prior to its eventual removal. Sarah rose to the challenge, working with the client and the designers, to identify the best solution.

A gutsy win for Sarah Constructions and the City of Prospect.
