Kane Constructions was awarded the Fairfield Showground Amenities Building in June 2019.
The new $5 million building forms part of the overall Master Plan for Fairfield Showground, to redevelop the site into a multipurpose venue featuring a range of sporting activities and event spaces.
Stage 1 of the Master Plan is to deliver a new festival awning and sports fields, spectator viewing mound and amenities building.
The project scope consists the construction and associated landscaping works of a new single level amenities building that incorporates a community space with associated kitchen and canteen, change rooms, male and female toilets, gym, doctors room, first aid room, umpire and timekeepers rooms, offices and storage.
The building is constructed of structural steel, and is enveloped by masonry, glazing and metalwork. The Aramax roofing brings a distinct character to the building, and provides a practical function to achieve the required spans and cantilevers.
Works commenced on-site in July 2019 with Practical Completion set for February 2020.
