Ormiston College Athletics Precinct
Following many previous successful projects at Ormiston College, Rohrig was awarded the design and construction of a new athletics precinct including three full-sized football fields, an athletics track, a grandstand building and works connecting the facility to the school. We engaged BSPN architects to complete the design and our in-house team completed design drawings and documentation.
The athletics track had to be completed to world athletics standards to position the college as a leading sports facility and to ensure that any records set on the track are officially recognised. It also allows the college to hold large events and hire out the facilities to other users.
The track is a multi-layer construction with road base, bitumen, waterproof CBR base, a red-rubber top-coat made from recycled car tyres, and a final sealing coat applied by hand. To support the extensive area during large rain events and protect the fields during sport season an extensive drainage system was designed for the infield and surrounds including piped and sub soil drainage solutions.
