PACIFIC GAMES FACILITIES
Leaving a Lasting Legacy
We were part of the consortium that successfully delivered design services for three sporting facilities worth over $250 million for the 2015 Pacific Games held in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea from 4-18 July 2015, namely:
The 15,000sqm Taurama Aquatic Centre & Indoor Sports Complex – comprising an Olympic sized swimming pool, a 25m warm-up pool, an indoor arena with 6 volleyball and basketball courts and additional martial arts facilities. This was designed to meet international standards. The structural highlights include seven 86m long tubular steel triangular roof trusses that were delivered by a local steel fabricator.
The Sir John Guise Outdoor Stadium redevelopment – incorporating a full seismic upgrade of the existing grandstand and new grandstands to increase the seating capacity from 900 to 15,000. The upgrade met IAAF international standards for track and field competitions.
The Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium redevelopment – which involved increasing the seating capacity from approximately 600 to 1,900, a seismic upgrade of the existing structure and a refurbishment to provide improved flexible sporting facilities.
