Paynter Dixon has worked with Bankstown Sports Club as it diversifies its business for more than 20 years. The Flinders Centre project includes the design, construction and fit-out of a state of the art ten level commercial office tower. The project contains 10,500m2 of office space with a 5-Star Green Star and 5-Star NABERS energy rating and a podium level of approximately 1,700m2.
The Building E upgrade was an expansion of the school auditorium to increase the seating capacity by about 30%. The new structure includes a ground floor and mezzanine level.
The engineering in the building is an exercise in structural gymnastics - an 18 metre slab is supported by a 2 metre upturned beam with no columns. This structure would be challenging enough, however beneath the slab, an operable wall also was installed. Paynter Dixon again proved to be agile and adaptable in making the engineering challenges a reality for the school.
Paynter Dixon is proud to have delivered such an outstanding development which has great significance for the club, community and promotion of sport in western Sydney. Works comprised of a two 350-seat grandstands with multiple change rooms, canteens, corporate rooms, two car parks, plaza areas and an elevated boardwalk which runs across Bungarribee Creek to link the fields. The four playing football (soccer) fields and two rugby league fields and a cricket pitch were designed and constructed to make the fields self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable in relation to water re-use.
