Pingelly Recreation and Cultural Centre

Construction Value $6.0M

The Pingelly recreation and cultural centre consists of several distinct buildings. The function centre is an approximate 1,000m2 single storey building with a sports / bowls bar, function area, lounge, cultural hall, memorabilia hall, commercial kitchen, administration offices, toilets and support areas. The sports building is approximately 1,500m2 and contains an indoor sports hall, home and away change rooms, toilets, club rooms, gymnasium, first aid and support areas.

With the exception of the sports hall, all normally occupied areas are reverse cycle air conditioned with the sports hall naturally ventilated and provided with High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) circulation fans. Fans are mounted at high level to provide the required clearance for sports such as basketball and badminton.

The facility is unique in that it is all timber construction which required a much higher level of coordination and detail between mechanical, structural and architectural elements.
