Armstrong Downes Commercial was excited to build the new players pavilion at the Basin Reserve.
The old pavilion was completely demolished creating space for the new building. The existing foundations were extended, and new footings installed to house the new structure.
The 2-storey pavilion includes:
- Two players viewing rooms upstairs and one downstairs
- Kitchenettes & toilets
- Umpire’s changing room with toilet and shower
- Two physio rooms
- Drug testing and First Aid room
- Store room
The ground level has a 115m2 footprint while the upper level has an 85m2 interior area and 37m2 deck area.
The ground level has Hardies Stria Board panels and the upper level has aluminium corrugated cladding with a curved wall at one end.
Hard wood Grappa was used for all of the decking, stair treads and walkway bridge this timber came from a stainable sourced in South America.
We also replaced the seating at the south west corner of the basin. The old rundown timber bench seats were replaced with new purple heart timber seating.
The new two storey pavilion has modern facilities that will cater to top cricketers from around the world.
