The Wembley Lacrosse Club and Subiaco Floreat Cricket Club currently share use of the facility for the winter and summer sporting seasons respectively. This project will renew and modernise the Sydney Cheek Pavilion to improve functionality, inclusivity, and accessibility for users.

Proposed Project Scope

1. Lower floor works:

  • Renew and upgrade changerooms and ventilation to make them suitable for all users
  • Demolish and rebuild new umpires/first aid room and universal accessible toilet (UAT)
  • Increase size of existing storeroom by 15 square metres
  • Add a new publicly UAT, available to all users of the reserve.

2. Upper floor works:

  • Replace the main entrance double doors with new compliant doors
  • Reconfigure and renew the male and female toilets to include ambulant toilets and add another female toilet
  • Reconfigure and increase the size of the UAT
  • Reconfigure the duct to also serve as a cleaner’s storeroom
  • Replace the balcony deck floor
  • Replace the staircase with a new compliant staircase.

3. External works:

  • Add a new external ramp to provide compliant disability access between the upper and lower floors
  • Add two compliant ACROD parking bays.

Project Updates

Following 2023-2024 Budget Approval, a contract has been awarded to Solution 4 Building to commence construction works in October 2023. The facility will remain in use throughout the works, which will begin with the upper floor and external ramp. Lower floor works are estimated to commence in February, after the new upper floor toilets have been completed. For the duration of the works, some of the footpath close to the Pavilion will be closed. The footpath along Ulster Road will however remain open.

Grants towards this project have been approved both by WA Cricket, through the Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund, and by The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries through the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund.
