As part of the ‘Claremont on the Park’ project, a new grandstand, club rooms and facilities along with 200 underground ‘Park & Ride’ car-parking bays for the Perth Transport Authority formed the architectural configuration for this project designed by Oldfield Knott Architects.
Minimum obstructions were required to achieve generous spaces for warm-up, functions and the gymnasium as well as to facilitate spacious parking lots of the two level Perth Transport Authority underground car-park.
13 meter spans were designed using post tensioned concrete and hollow core planks for the basement and ground suspended floors while a steel structure with hollow core plans was designed for the superstructure. Special attention to detailing the exposed steel and careful selection of corrosion treatments were paramount in the structural design and documentation to achieve the durability requirements outlined by the Client including longevity and imperishability in a highly corrosive marine environment which Claremont suffers due to coastal winds.
The re-development includes an arcade, principal reception, shop, changing rooms with showers and toilets, warm up and training facilities, administration offices, lecture room, treatment, doctors & physiotherapy accommodation, general & equipment storage, functions rooms, bars & associated facilities, tired seating, hospitality suits and media facilities.
