Client Problem:
In 2016, Wyndham City Council identified the need for a recreational and social hub for the Tarneit community. This project would require a significant investment and redevelopment of what is now known as Baden Powell Reserve.

Specifications:
The project included the construction of a regional level skate park, playground, picnic shelters, teaching and event spaces, fitness facilities and public amenities.

Contractors:
Wyndham City Council named 2Construct as the head contractor for the development, who then contracted ASCO to design and construct five custom cantilevered shade shelters and a public amenities building.

The designer for the project was Michael Ford from Enlocus Landscape Architects in Melbourne.
Michael delivered the preliminary drawings and concept for the space; it was up to ASCO to bring these designs and the overall concept to life.

We were able to achieve this through design by utilising the Stellar® building system, preparing drafting and shop drawings, structural certification and managing the building permit process.

Challenges:
A key challenge on this project was in the fabrication of an angled feature beam framing the structure. This beam was rolled from a 200 x 200 Hollow Section which was then fabricated from a series of laser cut and rolled steel plates. Creating a seamlessly changed shape along the faceted façade.

ASCO was able to utilise its proprietary Stellar® building system and customise the exterior to meet the designer’s vision.

Timeline:
ASCO was first approached by 2Construct in May 2017 and the project was completed in November of the same year.

Result:
The result was a beautifully designed, functional space which is heavily utilised by the Tarneit community.

The state-of-the-art facility was officially opened by Wyndham City Mayor and Sports Development portfolio holder, Cr Peter Maynard on 18 February 2018.

Since it’s opening the local YMCA have run a series of skate competitions for all ages and skill levels in the new facility.
