Zen Oasis Function Centre
Medway (Berrima), NSW
52 weeks. Due to be completed June 2021
Construction of a new 6500m2 one of a kind facility including cafe, restaurant and function hall. This included a 600m2 commercial kitchen, conference rooms, pottery workshops and yoga studios.
- A 6m deep sewer pump station and 5,000L grease arrestor was installed to manage the facilities effluent disposal.
- A 260,000L in ground rainwater storage tank and harvesting systems was installed to serve all toilets in the facility and for irrigation purposes.
- A fire hydrant system consisting of dual diesel pumps and 300,000L of water storage tanks was installed to provide adequate fire protection.
Beyond being a function centre which caters for approximately 500 patrons, this was our first major project where a full scale commercial kitchen was installed. The legislation regarding food and beverage operation is significant and complex and I personally enjoyed the process of learning what was involved in this facet of the project and working with the team to execute what was needed from our trade.
We had a team of 15 at any one time working on the hydraulics for the build. Like with all our projects, I was determined to stay one step ahead where I could to see the process remain as cohesive across trades and time effective as possible. We fast garnered a reputation for being reliable, relatable and responsive, something which I personally took great pride in.
