KELVIN GROVE, QLD

QUT SPORTSFIELD CAR PARK

This facility provides a new multi-level car parking amenity for the campus together with an enhanced sporting facility for student recreational sporting activities, and for the teaching and learning requirements of QUT’s Faculty of Health.

The lower two floors accommodate 800 cars and end of trip facilities, with the top floor sporting facility providing a full-size international FIFA-standard football field, sprint lanes, home/away seating, seminar rooms, a multi-purpose covered area and sports amenities and change rooms. Significant internal road and Herston Road infrastructure upgrades were included as part of the project to accommodate increased traffic volumes and movement.

The structure has been designed to take a future vertical expansion of two floors, with external appearance cleverly blended to disguise the car park and create a uniform aesthetic, as well as providing the required level of fenestration to provide natural ventilation.
