Allan Border pavilion contractor placed into administration

Mosman Council says it is extremely disappointed to learn that Allan Border Oval Pavilion construction contractor, Lloyd Group, has been placed in voluntary administration.

The Port Melbourne-based construction company specialises in government infrastructure projects, primarily in NSW and Victoria. 

The administration will affect more than 200 employees and 59 projects currently under construction, including 29 in Victoria and 30 in NSW.

Among the company’s current projects, is Mosman Municipal Council’s revamp of Allan Border Oval Pavilion, which got underway in May, 2021, with the demolition of the existing pavilion structure.

“Unfortunately this development will have a significant impact on the completion of the Allan Border Oval Pavilion project, which has already been unavoidably delayed by supply, weather and COVID issues,” said Mosman Council General Manager, Dominic Johnson.

“It is important to note that Council staff had taken stringent checks before contracting Lloyd Group, which has had a long track record of successfully completing infrastructure projects for local and state government.

“This is disappointing for our local clubs and players who use the facility and Council will be making every effort to resume the progress recently made over the past few months with roofing and internal fitout and we appreciate the clubs’ continued understanding.”

Mr Johnson said Council will now work with its legal team and administrators, Deloitte, in order to continue to progress the project as quickly as possible and minimise any losses.
