Whitcon was engaged by Bergstrom Architects to demolish and replace the existing main bar at the Ourimbah RSL, and to create coffee shop and lounge areas at each end of the bar. The replacement of the main bar was logistically difficult as it was the only bar in the club. To overcome this challenge, a temporary bar—capable of serving 4 draft beers on tap—was installed.
The existing bar had been in-situ since the inception of the Ourimbah RSL. Once removed, it was clear that the bar had been hiding many sins and structural challenges, all of which were rectified. Tastefully designed by Bergstrom Architects, the new bar was highly detailed, including the use of hand selected railway sleepers for the counter top.
The $560,000 project was delivered by Whitcon via a construction management contract.
