Did you know that upgrades to the South Pine Sporting Complex in Brendale have commenced this February? Included in the redevelopment will be a new single-storey clubhouse for the Albany Creek Brumbies Rugby Union Club.
According to the Moreton Bay Regional Council, the construction work is expected to last for 12 months. Brumbies Club President Col Langton said there will be no disruptions to the activities for the 2020 season. In fact, club members are eager to see the development completed as they will benefit from the new clubhouse.
The Brumbies’ new home, which will cost $1.5 million, will include the following features:
- universal change rooms and officials’ rooms
- first-aid room, storerooms, merchandise room
- gym space, spectator amenities and canteen
- separate club meeting rooms for the rugby union and touch football clubs
Mr Langton said that the upgraded clubhouse will be done by the time the club celebrates its 25th season in 2021.
With exciting changes underway, Mr Langton also said that now would be the perfect time for families to register their kids. Visit the club’s official page for detailed information about membership.
Aside from the new clubhouse, the South Pine Sporting Complex redevelopment project will also include the addition of three indoor multi-purpose sports courts, wider spectator areas, retractable grandstand seating, event spaces, offices and function rooms.
“We all know the importance of staying fit and healthy but in this busy world, I believe it’s increasingly important for councils to provide recreation opportunities close to home,” Deputy Mayor and Divisional Councillor Mike Charlton said. “The centrepiece of this investment is a multi-million-dollar commitment to improvements at the South Pine Sports Complex.”
