Our Latest Project

AJ Grant Group was appointed the contract to refurbish the old Victoria Park Golf Course Club House located in Herston, Brisbane; to be the new office space for the Mental Illness Fellowship Queensland.  The mainly funded; $2M contract consists of AJ Grant Group undertaking a complete renovation of the heritage listed building.

The Council owned heritage listed building holds significant historical significance to the region.  An iconic building for Brisbane in the 30’s and 40’s, the structure was originally constructed as The Victoria Park Golf Course Club House.  The two storey brick rendered building was built in 1931 by C.E. Fenwick for around $4000 pounds and features Tuscan style influences and was later refurbished and further extended in 1939.

The long-standing building will require replacement of the terracotta tile roof lining, new concrete steps and front entry plus steel walkways from the second level out to the hospital street front.  Bathrooms and wet areas will be fully restored including painting and rendering works of the facility.  A historical renovation of the original steel frame windows will be undertaken as well as all landscaping and drainage.

The iconic establishment was again revolutionised in the 70’s and 80’s where it was turned into a disco venue for single parents and was dubbed “The Pink Palace” as the exterior of the building was bright pink.

Following this era, it remained vacant for many years and had been inhabited by homeless squatters and utilised as a graffiti canvas for the areas youth for many years.  The Brisbane Council has now leased the premises to the Mental Illness Fellowship for their Head Office and drop in centre for the mentally ill.  The Fellowship has been granted Government funding to revamp the building and will restore it back to its former historical standing within the community.
