World Class Sporting Centre Demonstrates Excellence in Innovation and Construction

The Sydney Gymnastic and Aquatic Centre (SGAC) is the newest destination for sports and recreation in Sydney. Featuring two 25-m pools, a sports medicine and rehabilitation centre, as well as an Olympic-grade gymnasium which serves as home to the Gymnastics NSW Mens Elite team, the construction of SGAC incorporated a number of challenges and innovations.

FDC Construction & Fitout was entrusted with the design and construction of SGAC to ensure the state-of-the-art facility was completed earlier than contract date, with international accreditation and as an accessible sporting hub for the local and international community.

Throughout the build of SGAC, access to the adjoining Rooty Hill RSL had to be maintained and noise and interference had to be minimised to accommodate the local schools and close residents.

FDC Construction & Fitout implemented the largest air-conditioned gymnastics hall in the southern hemisphere by using a design feature of timber purlins and pre-finished roof insulation panels, managing to combine aesthetics with modern technology to create a one-of-a-kind build.

To construct the huge pool hall, structural steel had to be installed, along with the challenges that come from the usage of corrosive materials and the development of a pool plant mechanical system.

Managing Director of FDC Construction & Fitout, Ben Cottle credits the success of the build to his team’s professionalism, experience in large scale projects and ability to manage multiple contractors and stakeholders.

“The coordination of several parties, including Rooty Hill RSL, the gymnastics supply and installation team and the tenants of each facility was a successful feat attributed to FDC’s commitment to open communication and consistent updates. As with all builds, our priorities were quality control measures, safety and completing a high quality build on-time and on-budget,” he says.

FDC Construction & Fitout is a privately owned Australian company that was established in 1990 and is fully owned by the management team. Specialising in commercial construction, interior fitout, refurbishment, technologies and mechanical services, the company’s projects span the nation. FDC continues to develop its portfolio of high profile clients and industry relationships using a customer- centred work principle.
