Adelaide Oval redevelopment wins multiple awards
Cox Architecture’s redevelopment of Adelaide Oval has dominated this year’s South Australian Architecture Awards – winning five awards and commendations at the 2015 awards ceremony in Adelaide and adding to an already impressive suite of awards that it has gathered.
Completed with Walter Brooke and Hames Sharley, the $535 million Adelaide Oval project received the coveted Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture, the City of Adelaide Prize, and the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture.
Lauded by the jury for its “transformation from a picturesque sporting venue into a civic building able to accommodate multiple international sports and events”, the Oval also received an Interior Architecture Award and an Urban Design commendation.
Welcoming the Awards, Cox Architecture Design Director Patrick Ness stated “the power and success of this project is beyond, and more than, the sum of its architectural elements. It’s about how this building has facilitated the very positive transformation of the city itself, and more broadly, long-held perceptions of Adelaide.
“Successful buildings such as this require a great client, great design, and a great city willing to embrace it.
“We’re delighted, not just that it’s received these awards, but that it’s redefined the way sport is engaged with to become one of the nation’s great stadiums.”
Adelaide Oval is now in contention for the 2015 National Architecture Awards, to be announced on Thursday 5th November.
In September last year, the Adelaide Oval redevelopment won the highest honour conferred at Engineers Australia’s South Australia (SA) Engineering Excellence Awards, triumphing over entrants from large infrastructure works to complex software systems, planning and policy reports and maritime history.
Taking home the prestigious Malcolm Kinnaird Engineering Excellence Award, along with the Buildings and Structures Excellence prize, the project involved construction of a new southern and eastern stand, and retained the heritage scoreboard, grassed northern mound, and views of North Adelaide’s St Peters Cathedral.
Arup, Aurecon, AECOM and Wallbridge & Gilbert collaborated closely on the engineering of the Adelaide Oval redevelopment, which has transformed the previously aging venue into a state of the art, 53,500 seat stadium, while revitalising the city’s riverbank precinct.
The team worked closely with Cox Architects, Hames Sharley, Walterbrooke and Lend Lease to address a site that had inherent problems relating to low to medium levels of environmental constraints, ranging from contamination to mixed fill types resulting from earlier development projects.
Australian owned Fabritecture was chosen by Lend Lease as the preferred fabric supplier for the Adelaide Oval fedevelopment. Fabritecture won the $5.1million contract to design, supply and install the main stadium roof fabric cladding.
Fabritecture had previously installed the fabric structure for Adelaide Oval’ West Stand.
The Adelaide Oval has also won the 2015 Property Council of Australia/Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Award.
