Tompkins Park Master Plan

The City of Melville commissioned SGL to prepare a master plan for a major, high profile sporting facility.  The project entailed substantial discussions and negotiation with multiple sports, including rugby union, cricket, touch, soccer and bowls. The outcome was a master plan which included the reconfiguration of the playing fields and relocation of a bowling club and bridge club to a redeveloped and expanded hub building.  The assignment included the preparation of a management model which extended the previous management structure to include additional parties (ie bowls, soccer and bridge).
