The North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club has announced that it is searching for a new building firm to help it complete the redevelopment of its clubhouse.

The redevelopment of the Sydney south clubhouse was originally contracted to Lahey Constructions.

In a building update, the surf club’s president Geoff Budd stated: “The club is disappointed that construction of Project Phoenix has stalled, due to the contractor unexpectedly stopping works in late January. We are now working to secure a new contractor to restart construction of the project as soon as possible.”

Construction on the surf club, dubbed Project Phoenix, began in February 2022, where a sod-turning ceremony was attended by then prime minister and local MP Scott Morrison.

In a previous update, dated November 2023, the club confirmed it was entering stage 6 construction phase, which was slated to be completed by March 2024.

In its original construction program that Lahey Construction project issued in November 2021, the project was expected to be completed in February 2023.

When completed, the redevelopment is expected to incorporate the modernisation of the existing club, alongside a new two-storey extension. There will also be a new upstairs bar-restaurant and downstairs kiosk.

Feros Group, which was awarded the contract to operate the food and beverage offering, has said it is still “fully committed” to the project.
