The refurbishment and upgrade of the Zest Eatery area at West HQ will provide a new dining precinct experience for patrons and guests. All work is being undertaken within a live environment with the project team working closely with stakeholders to implement strategies to minimise the impact of construction works on the Club’s operations.

The Zest Eatery is the main food area for the Club with a 600 seat capacity and is being replaced with a range of new food outlets. The existing Zest Eatery kitchen area is being modified to include two new food outlets and the existing back of house bar area within the gaming lounge is being refurbished to provide for café, dessert and pizza outlets.

A new in-line dishwasher will be installed and new epoxy flooring will be laid in the back of house area. New beer and post mix plumbing will be installed from the existing beer lines into the bar, steak and pizza outlets.

The project team will also undertake works to the Level 1 Corridor, which will provide access from the neighbouring Novotel Hotel into the function areas of the Club. The current stairs will be replaced by a 1:20 ramp creating an easier path of travel for staff as well as enabling the better utilisation of trolleys for functions.

Refurbishment of the Club’s main circulation space will involve the demolition of the existing ceilings, wall and floor finishes. The ceilings will receive acoustic treatment and new lighting will be installed throughout. Services will be modified and upgraded where necessary. Other finishes in this area include new cladding for columns, new joinery, partitions and signage.

Construction of the new external terrace area features extensive structural steel and skylights for the roof and new floor, wall and column finishes. New outdoor mechanical plant also will be installed and extensive landscaping will complete this area.
