After a rocky start, the massive site which was slated to become St. Kevin’s College’s multi-sport venue sat idle. It was an ambitious project that at the time was considered to be the largest synthetic sports field in the country. Thankfully, our team was up to the task, taking over the reins from a previous contractor and pushing it to completion. The venue compiled three FIFA-certified soccer fields, one National FIH-certified field, a sandwich system athletics track and numerous cricket-wickets. A huge undertaking that took the best part of nine months to accomplish.
We took on this project with one goal, to deliver elite-quality sports facilities fitting of the top-notch institution, that is St. Kevin’s College.
The sheer size and scope of the project, paired with some tight access restrictions proved to be a formidable challenge for everyone involved. However, as Tuff Group, it is in our company’s ethos to tirelessly pursue greatness – always. Working hand in hand with 2Construct, Dalton Consulting (DCE), Case Meallin & Associates along with the driven people of St. Kevin’s College, we were able to not just complete the project, we were able to deliver something that we can be proud of. In fact, whenever anyone involved in the project drives along Monash Freeway or Toorak Rd, their face would turn up a smile, their hearts filled with pride.
To this day, St. Kevin’s sports venue is still regarded as one of the best sports facilities in Australia due to the quality of its construction and just as importantly, how well the facility has been maintained through the years thanks to Tuff Maintenance and the college’s staff.
