St Aidan’s Sport Hall

Ambiwerra is the sportsground of St Aidan’s Anglican Girls School, also in the suburb of Corinda on Brisbane’s southside.

The physical education centre comprises an indoor multi-sports hall and education centre to be followed by a 50-metre swimming pool, learn-to-swim pool and change facilities. The components are laid out to converge on a central café and courtyard, encouraging students to participate in different sports. The indoor sports hall is designed to open up to both north overlooking parkland and to Oxley Creek to the south for views and natural ventilation. It is designed to be a Glulam structure, with an arbour forming a sunshade canopy protecting the northern edge. Theca Timber was requested to detail-design the engineered-timber structure of the sport hall within a short notice, providing a tight timetable and a strict milestone for the delivery to site. Our full team focused on the best way to transform the tender design into the most efficient model possible, delivering a full 3D model for production and assembly, to be used for coordination with all other trades. A total of 135m3 of Spruce Glulam were provided, for portals spanning 23mt, featuring tapered columns and beams.
