Chiton Rocks Surf Life Saving Club
Redevelopment & clubhouse upgrade
Partek completed the redevelopment of the Chiton Rocks Surf Life Saving Club in Hayborough, Victor Harbor. Situated in the sand dunes of Chiton Beach with only the train line separating itself from the surf, the clubhouse upgrade comprises of a new two storey extension as well as refurbishing the interior & exterior of the existing building.
The construction of the new two storey extension flows on seamlessly from the existing building via the connection of a large new balcony/deck on the first floor overlooking the beach and new courtyard, paving & landscaping on the ground level.
Internally, the new layout facilitates everything required to operate a successful surf club such as a boat shed, changerooms, first aid, gym & training facilities . The members and general public are also treated with a brand new open plan recreation room and dining area upstairs boasting the ‘million dollar’ views along with a new commercial kitchen & bar area.
Partek faced many challenges with this build mainly associated with the upgrade of the existing building where the Surf Life Savers have been patrolling the beach for 60 years, the existing asbestos roof being replaced with a new roof to connect with the new extension, along with structural remediation works and façade upgrades throughout.
A vast array of materials & finishes were utilised throughout the build; featuring Alucobond & Modwood cladding on the outside, and recycled timber from the old balcony used in the bar area.
