Lalor Tennis Courts Reconstruction
ClientWhittlesea City Council
The Lalor Tennis Court Reconstruction Project commenced in 2014 with 2MH consulting auditing the existing 6 tennis-court facility. The project was scoped up to include the reconstruction of 6 tennis courts (with 1 netball court overlaid), the installation of connecting pathways, reconstruction and realignment of existing parking and provision of new sports court lighting and pedestrian lighting, a new pavilion and associated supporting infrastructure in a 4 stage program. 2MH were engaged to design and project manage the first stage which included the reconstruction of 2 Tennis Courts. Through practical collaboration with Council, and our expertise, we were able to present Council with two brand-new tennis courts, both in line with current tennis standards with improved access and functionality, complete with new drainage, fencing and sports lighting.
The existing courts were aged red porous construction. The natural ground was reactive and the old red porous material needed to be completely removed including terracotta drainage lines and ash material. This exposed a large soft area that required rehabilitation.
The design team worked swiftly to resolve the poorly performing subgrade area by instructing the contractor to remove the soft material and replace with a cement treated fine crushed rock. The result was a stable platform on which to build the courts.
