Gawler Town Hall
The redevelopment will transform the iconic and culturally significant Gawler Town Hall and adjacent Gawler Institute buildings to create an architecturally significant hub for economic and social enterprises that will act as a catalyst for renaissance of the Gawler CBD. The $14,311,415 Gawler Civic Centre project, underpinned by a $5.6 million grant from the Australian Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund was awarded in 2015.
The Portolesi Group worked with Badge Construction who were awarded this construction contract. this was a 15m long shotcrete wall with a basement wall with 600 diameter piles sunk into the ground and we prepared and sprayed the shotcrete between these piles. Even though on this particular job we used the dry spray system we would now shotcrete as it was just a case of not having the plant at the time to shotcrete.
