NRL Bulldogs Club Training Facility

KANNFINCH designed the new state-of-the-art headquarters for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs National Rugby League team. The complex includes a canteen, change rooms and facilities to accommodate amateur sporting organisations. In addition, the elite training facilities for the Bulldogs include ice and spa baths, a gymnasium, an altitude training chamber, sports education, conference theatre, video training facilities, a player’s recreation area, administrative offices and a board room.
KANNFINCH’s innovative design converts the existing grandstand facility into a new complex. A clean-lined concrete, steel and glass pod has been added to the base of the grandstand to house the new training facilities.
This project is part of a wider master plan concept for the Canterbury Leisure Centre Sydney which has been completed by KANNFINCH.
A number of sustainability initiatives have been integrated into the scheme, including thermally modelled and naturally ventilated main training facility, and double glazed operable louver blinds to the western façade.
