Illyarrie and Jubilee Reserves get a facilities facelift
The City of Tea Tree Gully recently requested tenders for a range of new facilities at Illyarrie Reserve in Surrey Downs, and the Jubilee Reserve in Wynn Vale, as part of the Fund My Neighbourhood program. Terrain Group came to the table with the impressive Modus Yarra toilet building, Skillion Shelters and stainless steel barbecues. Residents and frequent users of the reserves, were asking for toilets, shade and barbecue facilities for the playground.
Terrain Group submitted the successful tender for both locations, offering the Modus Yarra 1 toilet building and 4m x 4m Skillion Shelter with screening, as well as a double plate, stainless steel barbecue for Jubilee Reserve, and the same options for Illyarrie Reserve, but with a slightly smaller 3m x 3m Skillion Shelter.
Because the toilet at the Jubilee Reserve site was to be installed in the actual carpark, Terrain also had to create a disabled car parking space adjacent to the facility, which included a bollard protected space next to it to ensure sufficient space for wheelchair access from the carpark to the toilet.
The toilet buildings in both locations feature an outside hand basin for general use, as well as motion sensor lighting to conserve power, and a striking white and blue colour scheme which not only looks great, but will stand up to the harsh South Australian climate.
The two shelters installed at the reserves are constructed from Terrain’s trusted and proven anodised aluminium, with colorbond roofing sheets. Anodised aluminium provides the absolute best protection against corrosion and also against stains from vandalism and the environment. The anodised aluminium components are then coated with the impressive Timber Effecta coating to offer a great timber look and feel, without the hassle of timber maintenance. Fixings are all 316 Stainless Steel Anti-Vandal type to ensure these facilities are sturdy but also safe from vandalism and theft.
Building Assets Officer for The City of Tea Tree Gully, Martin Zunic, said:
“I was satisfied with all aspects of the building process from start to finish and, the service we received from Terrain Group was timely and professional. They we easily contactable throughout the project and when issues come up they provided the right advice for quick rectification. Their public toilets and shelters are good quality and aesthetically pleasing on our reserves”.
