Solid Relationships Support Community Sporting Needs in City Of Marion

The redevelopment of the Morphettville Sports Club combines AFL standards with artistic flair. Existing clubrooms were demolished to build a state-of-the-art larger facility with four clubrooms, kitchen, bar and community function area for up to 200 people, as well as realignment of the oval.

The City of Marion engaged Sarah Constructions to complete the redevelopment in time for the first football game scheduled at the start of April. In addition, it was critical that works caused minimal disturbance to the Centre’s surrounding neighbours, including an adjacent Telstra tower. The project team implemented a focused community management plan to ensure meeting this aspect of the brief was never in doubt.

The completed development provides the City of Marion with contemporary training facilities for the club’s local and visiting male and female cricket and AFL players, supporting the council’s commitment to AWFL. This project is another tangible example of the success that Sarah delivers through collaboration with the client, architect and contractors.

“Throughout the delivery of the project, Sarah’s worked collaboratively with the client and the design team with a can-do approach to any requests or issues that arose.”
