Blacktown Soccer Facility - The Bungarribee Precinct of the Western Sydney Parklands
Client: Blacktown City Council
Project Category: Open Space and Recreation
Situated in the Bungarribee Precinct of the Western Sydney Parklands, the Blacktown Soccer Facility consists of a new amenities building / grandstand, premier field, two additional playing fields, access roads & carparking for 190 vehicles, storm water retention / re-use infrastructure, passive recreation spaces and pedestrian circulation.
Environmental Partnership was awarded the project as lead consultants to a suite of sub-consultants including; architects, civil engineers, structural engineers, quantity surveyors, lighting & electrical engineers and Irrigation designers. As lead consultants EP coordinated an approved scheme that integrated the proposed sporting amenities within the broader context of the parklands
The clients, Blacktown City Council, where interested in exploring environmentally sustainable design principles for the project where possible. Ongoing water restrictions in Sydney meant that irrigation of playing fields from town potable water would be unsustainable in the long-term. A number of alternative water supply options were assessed for feasibility including recycled mains water, sewer mining, ground water extraction / recharge and storm water re-use.
Construction works for stage one works of the approved masterplan commenced on site in April 2011.
