Wulanda construction update

The Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre at Olympic Park on Margaret Street continues to take shape both internally and externally despite current challenges facing the construction industry.

Recent progress on site includes installation of pool plant room and mechanical equipment and first fix lighting throughout the pool hall, while the build and installation of the splash pad area equipment is also progressing.

“Construction is progressing well, and the site is a flurry of activity each day both internally and externally,” City of Mount Gambier City Infrastructure and project sponsor Barbara Cernovskis said.

“It’s really exciting to see the concept drawings literally coming to life, and the quality of the finishes is really coming to the fore now.”

The café is beginning to take shape with installation of wall framing and sheeting throughout with electrical works underway.

Fitting of acoustic treatment is almost complete in the entertainment hall and sports courts area, along with the AV equipment installation, lighting and bench seating.

It is really impressive to see the building all lit up at dawn and dusk and you start to get a real appreciation for what the facility is going to offer the community.

“The use of timber throughout the courts, aquatic and other areas of the building gives it a real sense of warmth when inside, and along with the limestone features outside the building, really showcases the materials that our region is renowned for.”
