BAKEHOUSE CAFE NEARING COMPLETION

18 April 2016

Canterbury will soon be unveiling one of the most exciting projects this year –  the Bakehouse Café is only another few months away from being completed and Canterbury can’t wait to introduce it to our Members and guests.

MPA, the company who won the tender to complete the internal fitout, is in the final stages of installing the interior décor and equipment for the café. The décor inspiration will see the area decked out in warm, earthy, and rustic tones with plenty of natural lighting, in-line with the café’s paddock-to-plate philosophy. Please flip to Page 8-9 for a look at the style of dishes that are coming your way.

On the opposite side of the café, MPA are preparing what will become the café lounge area which will provide more seats for patrons to relax and unwind with a cup of coffee from Bakehouse Cafe. That area will have free WiFi so customers can bring their laptops and tablets and work from the lounge area.

Parkview are still in the process of excavating the underground car park at the front of the Club; they have passed the halfway dig depth. Twelve massive trucks have been taking turns ferrying away the soil and rocks that have been dug out – by the end of it, over 62,000m³ tonnes will be moved off-site.

As they’ve dug downwards, workers have been reinforcing the sides of the walls with shoring piles at the edge of the boundary. Once the area has been completely excavated, Parkview can start building each car park level to form the brand new five-level underground car park. Members and guests can look forward to even more available parking at Canterbury in addition to the existing multi-level car park at the rear of the Club.

To the side of the Club, workers have finished pouring the mezzanine slab and are working on forming the Level 1 concrete slab that forms the upper floor. Once that has finished, it will be home to a new plant room and also provide the space to upgrade the kitchens and bars that will service patrons on Level 1.
