Richmond Speed Skating Oval
Construction of the foundations & concrete structure for the 8,000 seat facility for the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games. The work was completed under an aggressive schedule, with the concrete work being finished in approximately 7 months. Kenaidan’s completed the cast-in-place scope of work with own forces.
The cast-in-place scope of the work was completed by Kenaidan’s own forces and included pouring over 30,000m³ of concrete, erecting over 45,000m² of formwork and finishing over 35,000m² of slabs. The work included the construction of 2 pile caps 200m x 14m x 0.9m and a 500mm deep raft slab which supports the 400m long speed skating track of the Oval. Among the many unique features of the project are the 30 buttress walls, with exposed concrete, supporting the steel arches framing the roof structure. The buttress walls are approximately 15m high and taper from 1.524m to 0.963m. Sixteen buttresses feature aboriginal and contemporary cultural art work.
Enclosed 436 parking stalls located inside the building on first floor.
