CLUB ROOM EXTENSION AND REFURBISHMENT
CSLSC is a not for profit organisation, our mission is to save lives, create great West Australians and build a better community.
CSLSC is proposing a $4 million refurbishment to the clubrooms including a 27% increase to the building floorplan to provide state of the art training, lifesaving and recreational facilities for the next generation of Cottesloe lifesavers.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO COMPLETE THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY
EACH YEAR WE ALLOCATE 100 PER CENT OF EXPENDITURE TO SERVICES THAT SUPPORT NIPPERS, SURF RESCUE, LIFE SAVER TRAINING, PATROLS AND SURF SPORTS. THE PROVISION FOR EXPENDITURE ON CAPITAL PROJECTS RELIES HEAVILY ON THE GENEROSITY OF OUR COMMUNITY.
OUR CLUB MEMBERS PERFORM OVER 7,000 VOLUNTARY PATROL HOURS EACH YEAR AND SINCE 2012 CSLSC VOLUNTEERS HAVE COMPLETED
2,432 FIRST AIDS
6,804 PREVENTATIVE ACTIONS
>50,000 PATROL HOURS
CSLSC IS SEEKING TO RAISE $4 MILLION FROM OUR MEMBERS, THE COMMUNITY, GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND CORPORATE SPONSORS. Every donation counts.
WHY DO WE NEED TO REDEVELOP OUR CLUBROOMS?
Our existing clubrooms are a two-storey brick and concrete construction located at 87 Marine Parade Cottesloe. They were built in 1961 with renovations completed 25 years ago in 1993.
Membership numbers are now over 1050 members with around 47% of CSLSC members being female. The training rooms, changerooms, toilets and club gymnasium have become dated and sub-standard and do not cater for the current and future membership numbers and demographic. The clubrooms have limited disabled functionality and no lift to the first floor.
The potential growth in membership and community use is being negatively impacted.
The clubrooms are also currently used by many community groups on a free or token payment basis including; Derby Primary School (free accommodation for country week students); weekly Yoga classes; Fremantle Football Club training sessions; Cottesloe Veterans; Cottesloe Parkrun users, Cottesloe Crabs, Rottnest Channel Swim and Sculptures by the Sea.
The redevelopment of our clubrooms will benefit our members and the wider community.
WHAT WILL THE NEW BUILDING LOOK LIKE?
The building and internals will be completely refurbished and the floor area, increased from 846m2 to 1071 m2 through extending the southern wall to the existing land boundary. The northern balconies are also proposed to be extended whilst maintaining shaded open space on the north facing ground floor. No third-party commercial space is proposed.
HOW LONG WILL THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS TAKE?
Subject to final approvals and meeting our fundraising goals, the development is scheduled to commence construction in 2019. We anticipate the building will be fully commissioned by the end of 2020
HOW WILL THE CLUB OPERATE DURING THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS?
All club activities including patrol obligations and nipper activities will continue being based out the boat shed and temporary demountable buildings. Gym and social/bar activities will operate on a contracted and outsourced basis during the redevelopment.
