In park-like surrounds, Boulcott’s Farm Heritage Golf Club has undergone a major redevelopment. Situated in park-like surroundings on the fringe of a residential area on Military Road, Lower Hutt, the 1,200 member Golf Club’s plan required the current greenkeeper’s facilities and members’ car park to be replaced and rebuilt on a new site on the property – making room for the new clubhouse at a later stage.
The Golf Club contracted ADC to construct the first stages of this development. Over five months the work included significant earthworks, development of club access and car parking, shed construction and final internal fitout.
The two lane entrance from the end of Military Road into the car park, provides 170 parking spaces which are finished with asphalt, and landscaped planting.
The new 600 m2 maintenance shed has a large concrete floor is designed to store all grounds equipment safely indoors and is surrounded by asphalt. Mowers, tractors, a wash bay, and a compound for mixing chemicals are all housed within this purpose designed building.
Special Info / Challenges:
Throughout the project, this very busy golf course has continued to operate unimpeded. The extent of the earthworks has meant that 7,000m3 of river-run gravel has been brought to the site using the same access ways as the club members. The management and logistics of this has required careful planning to ensure that disruption has been kept to a minimum.
The large amount of construction traffic was also meticulously managed to ensure the health and safety of all parties on site, as the trucks made their way through the fully operational golf course.
“Having just heard that our team will be moving into their new building two weeks ahead of schedule epitomises the maintenance facility and car park project which has been undertaken for Boulcott’s Farm by Armstrong Downes Commercial. As a member of our golf club we always knew Tony Doile was a good bloke and now his professionalism, evident in running this project, more than confirms this. Critical targets have been realised – on time, on budget and achieving our build requirements.”
