The new $6m facility is the latest in a growing list of projects that Mossop Construction + Interiors has completed, in and around the Mount Gambier region.
The new Centre which is due for official handover on February 11, features a hydrotherapy pool with ramp access, an over 50's gymnasium which can cater for up to 20 people, treatment room, outdoor therapy rehabilitation area, changerooms and toilets, activity space with kitchen and disability access, IT hub for clients in reception area, outdoor gardening activity area and community offices.
Working on the Boandik project was terrific, not only because we know just how much these new facilities will be appreciated by the Boandik community, but also because it was lovely to connect with the residents who were really involved in watching the progress of the project and took such a keen interest in what we were up to.
Supporting local trades and businesses wherever we can, is also a key commitment by Mossop Constructions + Interiors, and many local South East trades were used on recent projects. 17 local companies were engaged to complete about 70 per cent of the work on the Boandik project. Specialist trades from outside the region were used for specific elements, like the construction of the hydrotherapy pool.
Given our team lives and works in Mount Gambier and the south-east, we’re locals too and we understand just how important it is to try and support the local community.
Our regional team is now working hard on the $3.1million Stage 2 addition to St Martins Lutheran College, which will add two food technology teaching spaces, three general learning areas, storeroom and teachers’ workspace to their facilities.
They are also currently working on the Timberlink Sawmill Project which has just started in Tarpeena, a new OTR in Stawell and have recently completed regional projects including the Mount Gambier Prison, the Nhill Law Court upgrade, the Robe Medical Centre and the Portland Library.
We’re looking forward to a busy 2020.
