Completed

2011

Incorporating several swimming pools including a 50m Olympic sized pool, gym and group class facility, childcare, retail store and office space the multiuse arena was developed to integrate all of the clients need.

Free spanning timber trusses were required to tie in with structural steel. Laminated beams had to be joint by our team onsite because of the size and integration required with the structural steel; and all of these elements needed to come together seamlessly to work in with the clear span trusses.

We used a staged approach and had to abide by a highly specialised design specification which was changed several times due to the ongoing reviews of the design.

Awards:
The Northern Arena is a purpose-built Olympic grade facility, on the cutting edge of design.
