ADCO Constructions has been selected as the builder of choice for the $50 million phase two design and construction tender for La Trobe University’s $150 million sports park.
The design and construct project will feature world class, sports focused teaching spaces, research laboratories, commercial office spaces and an indoor stadium, complete with six, multi-purpose highball courts.
ADCO CEO Neil Harding said that the company’s role on a project of this scale at La Trobe indicates strength in both the education and sporting sector in Victoria and nationwide.
“In the last year we have undertaken or completed five other education and sports builds in Victoria, further solidifying ADCO’s name as builder of choice for our clients in these sectors,” he said.
Baynule Council has invested $5 million into the construction in a bid to create a long term partnership with La Trobe University.
The year long project will see approximately 10,000 visitors attend the dynamic sports park per week including community members, La Trobe students and staff and new and existing sport organisations.
The development is expected to create 650 new jobs and will be completed by late 2019.
