The new Cobblebank Stadium is a multi-purpose community facility to respond to the growing need for additional indoor courts within Melton Township. The new indoor stadium will increase community participation and provide greater access for a range of sports including basketball, netball, badminton, table tennis, volleyball, futsal, school curriculum and community health and wellness programs.
The project included:
- six indoor high-ball courts (including show court and seating)
- Player, referee and public amenities
- Administration and reception
- Flexible meeting and social spaces
- Kiosk and seating areas
- Car parking
The six-court stadium has been designed to maximise natural light, minimise energy consumption, use environmentally sustainable materials, and use renewable energy.
It features high level thermal insulation, large double-glazed windows, solar panels, and efficient ventilation systems throughout, and will be powered by a 100 per cent renewable energy supply.
There are also water efficient bathroom fittings, as well as rainwater tanks which will be used to water the indigenous plants in the landscaping, and to flush the toilets.
In the car park, visitors with electric vehicles can charge their car, and those who choose to ride their bike can fill their tyres or tighten their brakes at the bicycle repair station.
During the build, sustainable and recyclable materials including timber and steel products have been sourced from environmentally certified and responsible suppliers. Concrete mixes have been made using recycled water and cement that requires significantly less greenhouse gas emissions to produce than traditional Portland cement. Low chemical paints, adhesives, sealants, and carpets were also selected for the build.
Environmental management systems have been in place throughout construction, with contractors actively diverting construction waste away from landfill, and prioritising staff training and wellbeing practices.
