A $2 million City Memorial Bowls Club development saw the club add an alfresco dining area and a Lightweight Structures Cover over two of its four greens.
“Warrnambool is known as ‘Windy Warrnambool’ & our windy weather impacts on both the opportunity & quality of the bowling,” said Ray Cooknell of City Memorial Bowls Club in Warrnambool, Victoria.
“In addition lawn bowls has traditionally been an older person's sport and we were looking for opportunities to expand our membership to a broader base of players.
“To minimise the impact of weather & maximise the use of our facility, our club spent around 18 months planning to have a protective structure built over it.
“Trevor Scott of Lightweight Structures was one of a number of contractors we collaborated with over that time to develop the complex & I could not speak more highly of him.
"Our interactions with him have been nothing but positive, right from the start. Trevor responded to each & every query & issue in a timely & professional way.
“This was imperative to keeping the entire project moving on time & budget.
“The shade structure & walls means that we can now bowl all year round, & for extended hours each day.
“Younger players tend to want to access the greens between 6pm & 10pm, & now we can also offer a more social atmosphere with food & drink as well.
“Trevor Scott has been one of the easiest men to work with & his input has been wonderful for our club.”
