NEW CITY OF BELMONT MULTI-PURPOSE COMMUNITY CENTRE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
1 May 2018
The City’s builder PACT Construction is now commencing the next phase of the construction which involves sheet piling that will create the basement of the new building.
Sheet Piling is sections of sheet materials with interlocking edges that are driven into the ground to provide earth retention and excavation support.
The machinery that will install the sheet piling has to push the sheets into the ground; this is done by hydraulic vibrations.
Two different types of machinery will be used; a 14 metre Piling Rig and an 8 metre Piling Rig. This is needed to avoid any damage to the two large Fig trees on the site.
Unfortunately, the noise from the 8 metre Rig is slightly louder than that of the 14 metre Rig and, while there may be increased noise for approximately four days during this phase of works it is to benefit the survival of the Fig trees.
See the plan here that shows the approximate days and dates of the Sheet Piling so that you can make alternative plans if required. Also included is an illustration that shows the noise levels of the machinery and the possible impact dependant on how close you are to the site.
As part of the contract with PACT Construction, operating hours of the Sheet Piling equipment are restricted to the following times:
Monday to Friday (except Public Holidays): 7:00am to 5:00pm
Saturday: 7:00am to 5:00pm

You will be able to find the most up to date information on this webpage.
The City of Belmont will also provide regular
updates in the Belmont Bulletin and e-newsletter.

The finished building will be a contemporary and much needed hub for our community, with facilities such as:
• Larger and enhanced Library
• Digital Hub
• Recording Studio
• Larger and upgraded Museum
• Senior Citizens Club
• Office for Not-for-Profit organisations
We look forward to sharing the exciting updates
of this project with you.
It is anticipated construction of the building will take
approximately 2 years, followed by fitout and occupancy by 2021.
Another great community project coming to you from the City of Belmont – the City of Opportunity!
