Faye Gladstone Netball Pavilion
The Faye Gladstone Netball Pavilion project addressed the needs of the Port Hedland community for better sporting facilities. Having recently upgraded their outdoor netball courts, Fratelle Group undertook the redevelopment for an upgrade to the accompanying pavilion to provide better amenities to improve the user experience and bring the current facilities up to compliance.
The main challenges with this project were the tight budget and program, contextual difficulties such as the specific cyclone region requirements and dust and heat requirements, and vandalism which has been a problem in the past. These were addressed through specific structural engineering measures, and a careful selection of the appropriate materials.
