Paynter Dixon's partnership with Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club continues to strengthen following the opening of the Club's Main Bar and Lounge. This was the final stage of a three stage program for the upgrade of the ground floor. The existing bar received a full re-fresh complimenting the upgrade to the main lounge area. This enabled the space to have synergy with the already completed foyer and Bistro & Oasis Bar. The club remained open and fully operational throughout the construction phase.
As a long-standing bowling club of renown in an area of the NSW south coast called the sapphire coast, Club Sapphire decided to move its bowling operations to all weather greens to allow more regular play and attract more barefoot bowlers. Paynter Dixon was responsible for master planning the Club to ensure that all upcoming changes would form part of the overall design now and in the future. The first stage saw the construction of two new artificial turf bowling greens with a column-free tensioned membrane structure over both greens incorporating a porte cochere.
The brief was to update the very popular café, bar, bistro seating, courtyard servery and pizzeria as well as updating the collande and foyer links to these areas. This is to bring the indoor area more in line with the recently completed outdoor courtyard and kids play area. The design and construct project achieved a high level of finish with a fresh new look while understanding the complexity of working in with existing structures and layout while including a staged project.
Paynter Dixon has recently completed a redevelopment at Knox Grammar School, a large and independent K-12 boys school on Sydney’s north shore, to convert an existing two-storey building into an administration and enrolment centre that caters to the needs of students who attend the school from metropolitan areas, country NSW and overseas.
Paynter Dixon's relationship with Mount St Benedict College began 10 years ago with the design and installation of a new sliding entry gate during a Christmas holiday period. Since then, projects have included classroom and science laboratory refurbishments, canteen and uniform shop upgrades and staff facility improvements. The reimaging of the College courtyard has fundamentally changed the way the College interacts with its students. The Hildegard Centre for Creative and Performing Arts is now complete!
Paynter Dixon is instrumental in the development of an overall site masterplan that allows the building-by-building construction of the school as the school’s population increases year by year. The site plan is to ensure that each new building project does not impact the completed and occupied buildings as it is being built. The initial stage consisted of prefabricated buildings with subsequent stages being completed building by building.
Paynter Dixon recently completed stage one of the Sapphire Aged Care in Bega NSW which involved the construction of two dual-level residential and administrative wings which boasts single rooms with ensuites and a variety of social spaces for the residents and their families to enjoy.
Paynter Dixon has been responsible for the masterplanning of the eight-hectare site and design and construction of a two-storey, 204-bed residential aged-care facility, retirement village, childcare centre and wellness centre. The construction of the residential aged-care facility (Stage 1) includes the installation of a unique 'bathroom pod'. A complete, prefabricated ensuite, the pod was transported to site and craned into the building during construction. Utilisation of the pods has afforded the client considerable efficiencies in both time and cost.
Paynter Dixon is constructing a new 26 bed double storey wing linked to the existing facility complete with a lower ground level providing car parking and infrastructure facilities. The staged redevelopment consists of a mix of new build and refurbishment to the existing facility. Stage 1 - construction of the new wing. Stage 2 - conversion and refurbishment of the Keira and Warilla. Stage 3 - upgrade of the Corrimal wing. Stage 4 - upgrade of the Wollongong and Auxiliary wings as well as complete sprinkler fitout.
Paynter Dixon completed the commercial office fitout across two and a half levels within a fully operational commercial office tower within a 13-week fitout deadline. As a pre-requisite, Paynter Dixon had to provide a construction management plan that addressed the impact of the build to tenants on other floors, coordination and liaison with building management, and hours of work with all noise and vibrating building activity undertaken outside of normal office hours.
Paynter Dixon was involved in the complete design, development application, procurement and construction fitout of three levels within an existing and operational eight-storey commercial building. The first level was a purpose-built childcare centre for KU Children’s Services. Levels two and three were purpose-built education fitouts for Navitas English. All three levels were provided as existing shells with basic building services only, insufficient for the proposed fitout requirements, necessitating complete upgrade.
Paynter Dixon was involved the heritage affected demolition of the original 1960s hospital on the site to make way for a new five star, green star, A-grade commercial building designed, constructed and fitted out by Paynter Dixon. The new state office for St Vincent de Paul comprised of 2500 square metres of commercial floor space located over four levels. The building incorporates office space, meeting rooms, staff facilities, an outdoor terrace, internal atrium with stair and an underground carpark.
