Glen Eira College

Contek was engaged by Victorian Schools Building Authority to upgrade the existing oval at Glen Eira College. The new oval will become a multi-sports facility with futsal, football, softball and a athletics track.

Colourful synthetic turf with sports field linemarking and athletics (with a long jump pit) was laid upon a finely graded crushed rock pavement, with concrete kerb and channel conveying runoff to new stormwater infrastructure. The oval is also backed with two volleyball courts, four-square courts and table tennis near the oval.

A new terraced area was constructed with designer blocks and cappers, with synthetic turf infills. A concrete ramp was installed to facilitate access along side with new trees and minor landscape improvements.

Main Scope:

• Earthworks
