A design approach that embodies the community’s habits
The brief asked for the demolition and replacement of a stand that was condemned as outdated, which would severely compromise game day operations.
Innovative ESD, fire engineering and construction methodologies integrated to achieve a rewarding outcome within the limited $10m budget. In a mere 12 months from engagement, the facility was not only designed, but approved, built and open for use, achieving great amenity for the continuity of sport within the community.
We showed how the existing structure could be recycled, extended and adapted to achieve not just a half stand, but a complete western grandstand containing all the brief ‘must-haves’. Scott Carver was commended on our design approach, taking the steering committee on a journey through our investigations and awareness of the community’s habits and ‘love of socialising’ whilst at the game. This in turn, radically changed the design outcome expected by the client at the outset, to a project that embodies community amenity at its core purpose.
