Cabravale Leisure Centre
The Cabravale Leisure Centre is a new community facility servicing the south western suburbs of Sydney. ADCO won the select tender for the $13 million project on behalf of Fairfield City Council.
The Centre includes an indoor heated swimming pool, a gymnasium, associated amenities, a cafe, consulting suites and a community programme room used for yoga and dance classes.
The project featured a high level of architectural detail, including a curved metal roof, apolic cladding and curtain wall facades.
Environmental features included low E glass and a sophisticated building management system which automates fresh air supply and water use. Natural air cooling was achieved by creating a labyrinth below the ground level through which warm air is circulated and cooled before being released into the building through floor ducting.
The project was completed on programme in 52 weeks and is an exceptional community facility used extensively by the local residents.
