Tom Price Sports Pavilion is a multi-use community facility that forms part of a sporting complex upgrade in the remote Pilbra mining town.

Given the opportunity to be involved with the builder in such an important community facility is a privilege especially in an environment that is as remote and demanding as north Western Australia.

i2C’s responsibility in helping deliver this sporting complex was to provide a delivery service for documentation to the builder to allow the development of the community and personal bonds which are important to the historic town of Tom Price. The project was successfully delivered on time and to budget.


Challenges

The Shire of Roebourne (client) played a large part in formulating a brief for the design development. Our main focus was to provide the various users of the pavilion with a flexible space for both sporting and community events.

Being a remote site the biggest challenge lay with the builder who was to deliver the building in a design and construct approach. A smooth construction sequence was required for limited trades and materials to ideally reduce large shipping and labour costs.

The vision of the pavilion was to generate an attractive an inviting sporting precinct that included upgrades to the surrounding landscape and planting on new lawns and trees. Various sporting clubs would use the facility with their own team requirements and the pavilion also needed to provide a place for community non-sporting events so the design incorporated a fully equipped bar, kitchen and kiosk.
Faceted roof plains and peaks were developed and became the focal point of the design. Tied in with colour and concrete panel variations to the facade, the overall appearance contrasted immensely against the dry red environment.


Outcomes

The ground floor club rooms, the first floor function room with bar, along with the open tiered pavilion seating offers the users the new vantage point to enjoy the sporting activities and community facility they were lacking. The Shire have further developed the surrounding landscape and the pavilion now sits in a prominent location at the edge of a lush green oval and vibrant red natural surround.


Project Feedback
