RDT Pacific provided Cost Management/Quantity Surveying services for the construction of a new multi-purpose gymnasium facility, with associated changing rooms, staff facilities, weights and cardio rooms, and an exterior but enclosed climbing wall, designed to meet the needs of over 1500 personnel.
The gym is 2000m2, containing a standard military main hall of approximately 900m2 including retractable seating for up to 300 people and a mezzanine floor. The gym includes sustainable initiatives such as solar power and rain water recycling.
