A Bairnsdale family-owned business is at the centre of Wellington Shire’s biggest capital works project with the redevelopment of the Sale swimming pool complex.
Brooker Builders are the prime contractors for the project which is budgeted to cost more than $20 million and will deliver a new heated indoor swimming pool along with major improvements to the fitness centre and associated facilities.
Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester says the project is a good example of all levels of government working together to deliver a project that will last for generations.
“It’s terrific to see an East Gippsland business winning the contract to deliver a project that will improve the health and wellbeing of the local community for decades into the future,” Mr Chester said.
“Funding has been received from three levels of government to undertake this much-needed redevelopment of the facility which hasn’t changed much since I was a boy attending school swimming classes in the 1970s.
“Brooker Builders is an award-winning company with a reputation for quality works on residential and commercial projects across the region.”
