Kingsway Sporting Complex

 Client: Penrith City Council

Project: Kingsway Sporting Complex and Blair Oval, Penrith, NSW

Description: Design of new $14 million sporting complex and all-weather athletics facility, including:

  • five sporting ovals
  • an all-purpose athletics track
  • 500 space car park
  • clubhouse and storage facilities
  • upgraded infrastructure and pedestrian footbridge.

Barnson’s Role: All aspects of project management for the design of the complex. 

Time frameFive-month consultancy period during mid-2015.

Hot on the heels of Barnson’s role in designing the Barden Park Regional Centre of Excellence for Athletics (hyperlink to page on Barnson site) in Dubbo, the team is now busy designing a sporting and athletics complex in western Sydney.

Penrith City Council awarded Barnson the project management and design consultancy for the Kingsway Sporting Complex and Blair Oval All-Weather Athletics Facility to the Barnson team, ahead of competing tenderers from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.

The project will include all of our in-house disciplines from our Building Designers, Town Planners, Civil, Structural and Geotechnical Engineers to our Environmental Scientists, Surveyors and Geospatial Analysts.

Over a five-month consultancy period, the team will be engaged in the project management and design for the entire $14 million development. Penrith City Council is hoping to attract district and regional level athletics carnivals to the facility, which will accommodate seven local sporting clubs, including athletics, rugby league, rugby union, touch football and soccer. 

In the past, Barnson has also been involved in the grandstand extension at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium at Coffs Harbour. The stadium can now seat 2000 people and has attracted national events in all codes of football and will host the 2015 Touch Football World Cup.
