Construction to commence on Gosford RSL redevelopment

Construction to commence on Gosford RSL redevelopment

Celebrations are in order as Gosford RSL forges ahead in transforming their adored RSL Club into a landmark building and a stand-out venue for the Gosford region.

Uniquely designed by WMK Architecture, with construction by local contractor North Construction & Building, the $45 million upgrade will see the club transformed into a contemporary space that embraces and builds community, one that is accessible and encourages each and every member and guest to find a space they’re comfortable in.

The 3-storey ultra-modern venue will feature a distinctive porte cochere entry, RSL museum and reception servicing both the RSL and the adjoining motel on the ground floor.

The first floor will contain a cafe, lounge, bar, multiple indoor and outdoor dining options, kids play area, and teenage retreat. While the second floor will showcase sophisticated conference and event spaces, sports bar and brewery.

An additional 154 car parking spaces will be added on site to accommodate the expected increase in patron numbers.

“We are incredibly excited to bring this project to life after many years of planning and delays caused by the recent pandemic,” states Gosford RSL Club, CEO, Russell Cooper.

“Our Club has gone from strength to strength over the past decade with our popularity demanding significant expansion. After reviewing many options, the decision was made to construct an entirely new venue which will be a stunning building marking the gateway to Gosford and the Central Coast.

“We are a parochial local business, and it means the world to us to be able to create a venue that our community will enjoy and be proud of whilst also ensuring we are able to continue supporting our community and providing outstanding entertainment, hospitality, and employment opportunities for many years to come.

“The fact that we are able to partner with a successful and capable local builder in North Construction & Building is the icing on the cake.  We can’t wait to welcome our members, guests, staff, and local community into the new Gosford RSL Club,” said Russell.

Equally as excited are local award-winning contractor, North Construction & Building, who have been tracking this project since its conception.

“This is a very special project for us,” stated North Construction & Building, Managing Director, Matthew Cook.

“Not only is it a significant year for North, celebrating our 35-year Anniversary, but we also now get to celebrate being awarded our largest community construction project to date,” Matthew said.

The Gosford RSL redevelopment represents more than just another building project for North.

“Our site teams and subcontractors live locally and have been enjoying the Club’s facilities for many years,” expressed Matthew.

“Many have celebrated significant family events at the Club’s restaurant and function rooms and continue to visit regularly. This is North continuing to build in the community and help create the “Gateway to Gosford and the Central Coast,” finished Matthew.

Construction is expected to commence in June 2022 with anticipated completion late 2023. The existing RSL Club will remain operational throughout construction.
