Synthetic Pitch Update

 MG 7593- Pano
Practical Completion:
The committee was awaiting final confirmation of the delivery date of the Shock Pad which was on the critical path of the Project. Unfortunately, through no fault or blame of the committee, the delivery of the shock pad has been delayed. The current estimated date of arrival for the shock is the 06th May 2019 into Brisbane Port and will be shipped to Mitchelton Football Club straight thereafter. The revised Practical Completion ("PC") Date is 07 June 2019. The Contractor is working on various options to improve the PC date.

We believe there to be no further constrains on the Practical Completion with exception of inclement weather.

Cost:
The Contract is a Lump Sum Contract with clearly defined milestone payment dates. There has been no known unknown Variation submitted by the Contractor. The Cost remains within the funds received through grant for this Project and no cost overrun is projected.  

Irrigation Status


Stage 1
The Committee have arranged to have the Water Tank located at Field 5 connected to the main water compound located next to Field 1. As you might have noticed, Field 5 is now closed for the next couple of weeks in order to provide it with some much needed irrigation and seeding from the bore water located in the main water compound.

CostThe Club has incurred no cost for having these works completed. 

Stage 2
In order to maintain water levels within both the main water compound and Field 5 water tank, a review of the remainder of the bore holes was done. The bore hole located near the walk way opposite Field 7 has been identified as the most viable water source in addition to the bore located in the main water compound. A complete irrigation system installation is required in order to fully utilise this bore. 

Cost The Committee have solicited a number of quotes from Contractors to find the most cost effective option available. The cost equates to $16,500.00 all inclusive with the works being completed by a number of Contractors. Trenching, electrical and installation of the irrigation piping will all be done by separate Contractors. All of these activities will be managed by Perfection Plus Maintenance ("PPM") free of charge. PPM is presently responsible for the maintenance of Mitchie fields and facilities. Works will take about 5-7 days to complete post approval of the Work Order requested via Brisbane City Council. 

This process will reduce the Club's water bill significantly and provide much needed irrigation to remainder of our fields.

Exciting news re our new Synthetic Pitch!

After several years of planning and hoping, thanks to funding and assistance provided by Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government, the construction of our new Synthetic Field is commencing shortly and is expected to be completed by April 2019.

 

The main points are:

 

·     It will provide a consistent all year-round high quality playing and training surface on Field 2;

·     It can be used for up to 75 hours a week instead of the recommended 15 hours for a grass pitch;

·     It will allow for opportunities at all ages and levels to train and play in most weather situations; and

·     It will provide a much-needed new source of revenue to the club.
