La Trobe University Sports Package

Project completion March 2023
Location Bundoora, VIC
Client La Trobe University
Sectors Community infrastructure, Sports and recreation

Latrobe Sports Park is a cutting-edge facility designed for teaching, research, community engagement, and elite sports, serving as a cornerstone of the university's vision to transform its Bundoora Campus into a 'University City of the Future'. This regional asset attracts national, state, and local sports organizations, offering state-of-the-art amenities for up to 10,000 community members weekly.

The State Centre for Football Victoria includes a marquee pitch with seating, four other pitches, a futsal pitch and highperformance facilities including a gymnasium and wet recovery area, medical and rehabilitation centre, meeting areas and player lounge.

The Victorian State Rugby Centre includes a show pitch with grandstand seating and two additional pitches, along with highperformance facilities including a gymnasium, sport science, medical and recovery areas and a training and match day home for the Melbourne Rebels’ Super W team.

Symal Infrastructure completed the Common Area Enabling Works (CAEW) of Stage 3, which has established the park as the national base for Football Australia's women's programs, including the Matildas, and the State Centres for Football Victoria and Rugby Victoria. The completed facilities cover 15 hectares, featuring separate Centres of Excellence for each sport.

Symal's scope of work spanned from demolition and tree clearing to landscaping and infrastructure development. Throughout the project, we collaborated closely with the client to optimise designs, reduce construction costs, and minimise waste.

To meet project deadlines, the Symal team re-designed the intersection at Plenty Road, considering tight timelines and coordinating with authorities for required approvals to ensure on-time completion.
