GWS Giants AFL Training Facility

Modular - a viable solution for permanent requirements

The GWS Giants, the newest Australian Rules Football Clubs, was in need of an office, player’s room, change room and gym, and were looking for a company that could deliver it with style and efficiency.

In mid-2010, Ausco Modular was approached by Blacktown City Council to prepare a brief for a range of buildings that mirrored permanent infrastructure design. With more than 50 years’ experience designing state-of-the-art modular solutions that demonstrate the same quality, design and architecture of many permanent buildings, and with experience building the 2000 Sydney
Olympic Village, Ausco Modular developed the perfect solution to house the GWS Giants.

Ausco Modular successfully managed a number of issues from underground gas lines that required easements, to the specific loadings required on the gym floor to handle the specialist equipment used by professional AFL clubs.

The project underwent a number of large changes during operations, but deadlines remained set.

Ausco Modular overcame each challenge as it was presented, and the final result was a win for the client and for Ausco Modular.

The new home for the club’s office and football staff looks and feels like a permanent building – it’s a solid start for AFL’s newest club!

The players can stay fit in a state-of-the-art gym and change room facilities.
