Client Problem:

The City of Bendigo invested in upgrades to Truscott Reserve, this included a new adventure playground and upgrades to the adjacent soccer fields, home to The Eaglehawk Soccer Club.

As a result of the new playground and increased use, a shelter was required to offer sun protection for the community in the summer months.

 

Specifications:

A shelter had been designed to pay homage to the local soccer club, including hexagonal shapes and bright colours.

 

Contractors:

Jonathon Lane Landscape Architect at the City of Greater Bendigo designed the space and shelter.

ASCO was then contracted to bring Jonathan’s design and vision to life.

 

Challenges:

The design including the hexagonal shapes presented a welcome challenge, our team worked together to determine the best way to ensure structural integrity whilst delivering the designers vision.

This was achieved by fabricating the shelter from a honeycomb of steel with a combination of polycarbonate and powder coated aluminium.

 

Timeline:

ASCO was awarded the contract in March 2019 and the project was completed in June 2019.

 

Result:

The result was a striking and functional space which is heavily utilised by families within the community and visitors. Enabling the children to play whilst their guardians watch from a close distance.

Our vast experience and proven Omega™ methodology ensured that this project was a success.
