All systems go for stage two MARC redevelopment

It’s all systems go for Stage Two of the Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre (MARC) redevelopment, with Perkins Builders awarded the design and construction contract for the Dry Centre Redevelopment this week.

The Dry Centre facelift will complete the long-awaited $38million redevelopment to provide a modern, integrated sporting, aquatic and recreational facility to meet the needs of Mandurah’s growing community and beyond.

Included in the Stage Two renovations are new sports courts, group fitness studios and a gymnasium.

With the stage one Aquatic Redevelopment nearing completion, Mandurah Council awarded the contract for Stage Two at the Council meeting last night.

The $15.6m Dry Centre redevelopment will include:

  • New multi-purpose sports courts x 2 including spectactor seating, entry, foyer, administration, office, kiosk and first aid facilities
  • New gymnasium and group fitness facilities
  • New/renovated main entry, foyer, reception, cafe, retail and meeting facilities
  • New/renovated Centre administration facilities
  • New/renovated crèche facilities
  • New dry area toilet and changeroom facilities
  • Renovated existing squash courts, and
  • New/renovated building facades.

The City has received a $10m Federal Government grant to deliver stage two of the project. Construction is expected to start in early 2016 and is expected to be completed in mid-late 2017.
