Ben Kavanagh Reserve Improvements & Netball Courts

Contek was engaged by Kingston City Council to create a new play space area at Ben Kavanagh Reserve, from a dilapidated concrete surface. To minimize the amount of contaminated material on site, Contek devised a plan with Council to stabilize one layer combined with efficient compaction.


In conjunction with two netball courts, multiple aspects including a fitness station, petanque piste and a new footpath across the whole oval was installed. The netball courts were certified and compliant with Netball Australia's standards.


General landscaping improvements were also done which involved a new granitic sand path, new planting and garden areas, furniture and garden edging.

Main Scope:

• Earthworks with contaminated material
• Stabilisation
• Concrete over 2000m2
• Drainage upgrades
• Lighting
• Fencing
• Rebound wall
• Fitness station with rubber surfacing
• Planting
