The project is now ready to commence.An architect has been contracted to design the new look and feel and this has been approved by the steering committee. The architect and building contractor have provided costing estimates on which the project budget is being based. They have advised, in order to minimise business disruption, the order of works will be:

Stage 1 – Two days (no business disruption)- Playground fit out and flooring- Fencing and shade sail installation- Landscaping and new outdoor furniture

Stage 2 – Two days (café closure)- Removal of booths- Repainting of café dining area interior- Laying of floating floor over existing tiled floor café dining area only- New dining furniture and artwork

The Procurement Director has identified preferred suppliers for furniture and fit outs including the playgrounds. Damian Black, CEO has advised the following:

•It is assumed the marketing staff will contribute to the project, helping with the branding and other promotional items as required. The existing team is able to fully participate in training where required.

•It is assumed construction can take place simultaneously with other project deliverables.
