Modules see clubs sport uniform
TWEED Shire Council has announced it is finalising plans for a distinctive, uniform design for Tweed sports facilities.
The plans would allow all facilities to be built from the same design, saving time and money.
Recreations Services manager Stewart Brawley said the typical sports field pavilion design provided standard modules for club-rooms, canteens and change rooms.
“We won’t need to go to the architects and start from scratch to design each new project,” Mr Brawley said.
“It also means the same fittings and materials will be used in each pavilion, providing cost savings of buying in bulk and enabling council to replace damaged items more quickly and cost effectively.”
A range of colour schemes would be available to allow clubs to differentiate.
The design scheme was instigated by Recreational Services Project co-ordinator Andrea Hamann.
“I’m not aware of any council taking this approach for sport pavilions but it seemed a logical solution,” Ms Hamann said.
The design would be implemented as new sports facilities were constructed or renovated, starting with Arkinstall Park and grounds next to St Joseph’s School at Banora Point.
