Glulam timber structure was the integral aspect of the design.The glulam timber roof cantilevers, over eight meters, provide shelter from the weather and solar shade cover for the seating. The use of a mass timber structure in the Stadium is the first use of glulam timber for this type of facility in Australia, representing an impressive achievement in timber engineering. The concept ‘V’ shaped cantilevered roof beams were inspired by modest aboriginal architecture and local environment.
Sustainable design was an important objective of the project, and the timber construction was key to achieving this – low carbon, low waste and highly energy efficient.
