Colourful Kingspan Panels Turn Heads at Landmark Sporting Venue

A multi-coloured facade has been created as part of the $47 million re-development of the 15,000m² Eagle Stadium in Werribee — the largest indoor sporting court facility in Melbourne's West.

Using more than 15,000m of Trapezoidal Roof panels and almost 7,000m from the Kingspan range of Architectural Wall Panels, ten different colours were chosen to construct a roofing and walling system that maximised interior and street appeal across the site's new and existing buildings.

A building the size of Eagle Stadium has several thermal zones with varying mechanical and ventilation strategies — from fully air-conditioned spaces, to indirect evaporative cooled spaces, to space with natural cross ventilation. The Kingspan wall and roof panels provided a fully integrated solution that enclosed all areas with a thermal inertia, suitable for each of the different ventilated spaces. This was critical to building a facility that is able to hold an internal temperature for longer, with less energy or air change required, to maintain a suitable indoor sports environment.

The Kingspan team demonstrated a strong understanding of the product's physical properties and detailed material junctions, helping architects Williams Ross to make the most of the panels' application — from the overall facade scale across 200m, to the smallest of material junctions to seal the building enclosure.

The Kingspan team attended regular site inspections to ensure the panels were being installed to specification, delivering on the sustainable design principles laid out by Williams Ross.

"The Kingspan facade has enabled the council to create a local icon, which was a key design deliverable for the project. The clean lines and distinct colours are visually strong enough to let the stadium be a landmark in its own right, without the need for significant signage," says Gray Barton, Director, Williams Ross Architects.
