Challenge

The NSWRL Centre of Excellence was designed to provide support facilities and offices for NSW Rugby League (NSWRL). nurturing the talents of junior representative sides through to the men’s and women’s NSW State of Origin teams.

The three storey, multi-use complex includes a full-sized playing and training field adjacent to the building with direct access to a gymnasium, recovery facilities and medical treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy centre with plunge and resistance pools, press conference room, change rooms, lecture rooms, kitchen/dining facilities for players and staff, and administration offices, as well as a Blues-themed café and museum featuring Blues memorabilia.

Solution

Altus Group was engaged by NSW Rugby League in mid-2016 at the master planning stage of the project. The role involved pre-construction activities including initial cost planning and budgeting, detailed cost planning, tender review and negotiations. Cost Management services were delivered throughout the construction period, including assessment of progress claims, variations and provisional sum adjustments, as well as assisting the superintendent and NSWRL with the budget until completion of the project in early 2019.

Altus Group worked with the project team to complete tender reviews, comparisons and interviews in order to select the preferred head contractor. The contractor was engaged under an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) arrangement, which led to further design to help eliminate project risks, value management exercises and design revisions aimed at keeping the project on budget.

The NSWRL Centre of Excellence was completed on budget and ahead of schedule in December 2018.
