The Stage 2A build started on November 11 2015 and was completed in August 2016, just in time for the club to operate out of the new facility for the 2016/17 surf lifesaving season. The new facility has allowed all the club's rescue equipment to be stored in one location for the first time since the club was formed in 2004.

The contract price for the ground level Stage 2A build was $717,039.09 (ex GST). Remember that this is a commercial build and the requirements are beyond those normally required for domestic housing. A significant component of the cost has been in the suspended slab which required 17 screw piers driven 10-12m into the ground and a large amount of concrete (there was 113 cubic metres of concrete just in the footings and beams under the slab).
