The Franklin CRIP project was complex and demanding due to the short program, and the range of disciplines required to construct the many various elements located within the park.
The works consisted of a number of play areas each catering to a different age bracket – from infants to teenagers. As well as a large irrigated “kick-about” area, the project included bespoke elements of areas of blue stone feature walls, irrigation, rubber soft-fall, extensive steel structures, 2,000m2 of coloured pavement, insitu concrete skate bowls, large steel sculptural elements, cricket nets, play equipment, fitness equipment, paving, fencing, playgrounds, turf, grassing and planting.
RAM also arranged for the fabrication and installation of structural steel shelters, toilet block, and multi purpose sports facility, stainless steel handrails and fencing, metalwork. Extensive electrical works were required for path lighting, events power to external control boxes and BBQ’s.
RAM worked with the client and superintendent to reprogram works around critical installation dates for the cooch turf with no cost implication to the client.
The completed park sees hundreds of visitors each week using all of the facilities. The quality of the construction has been complimented upon by client and end users alike. The project has just recently been handed over the ACT government who were impressed with the quality of workmanship and the standard with which the project was maintained during the consolidation period.
