By Brent Gordon, Sports & Racing Manager, PEAKURBAN

Ground has been broken on yet another PEAKURBAN Sports & Play design at Wyndham City Council’s Bensonhurst Parade Sports Facilities. While the design and construction of all Active Open Spaces are important as centrepieces of Australian communities; Bensonhurst Sports Facility is also “kicking goals” on the sustainability front by utilising the process of amelioration to re-use topsoil.

This project involves the development of four soccer pitches with cricket overlay, standalone cricket oval and nets, seven acrylic tennis courts, and one multipurpose court. To add additional amenity to the community the project also incorporates a gathering zone with a Bocce Court and picnic facilities that provides an aesthetically pleasing yet functional interface between the existing council play space and the new sports facility

The team at PEAKURBAN have worked across multiple States and with different Authorities over the years and have found that a pragmatic Self-Certification system can assist in streamlining design approvals and enabling site works to commence much sooner than conventional approval systems. In some instances, we have worked with Authorities to obtain detailed design

PEAKURBAN was engaged to design and coordinate the 100+ car park design, road interface and pedestrian network, and sports fields including bulk earthworks, irrigation, and bulk earthworks. As engineering servicing specialists we also undertook design of the gas, water, and sewer reticulation, and coordinated with landscape architects, architects, and other specialist consultants to adequately illuminate the pitches and courts for night-time training and enable construction of the pavilion.

Earthworks activities for the site require importation approximately 40,000 cum of suitable fill across the site whilst also re-conditioning and re-using 4000 cum of topsoil for re-use on garden beds and non-sports areas. Over 1100m of drainage has already been installed along with the irrigation tank stand and cricket wickets within the ovals.

We look forward to seeing the community enjoy these new facilities!
