We introduced flexibility of use and natural ventilation in the expansion of this stadium from four to eight courts

Through a blend of Federal, State, and Council funding, Willetton Basketball Association Ltd undertook a project to expand the 1980’s-built Willetton Basketball Stadium in Western Australia from four to eight courts.

Stantec’s structural and mechanical consultants are proud to have been involved in this community sports project while our electrical teams also worked with the City of Canning on the interconnecting car park lighting in the external pedestrian precinct. Structurally, the long-span, column-free stadium is supported by trusses on a steel frame. With retractable backboards offering flexibility of use for a variety of other sports, the court floors were carefully designed to deliver tolerances compliant with basketball guidelines at national level. The courts are cooled using oversized fans to circulate air, with natural ventilation via louvred wall sections which are closed at night.

Upon completion, the existing building has more than doubled in size, been stripped out and reconfigured to include a show court with retractable tiered seating for 700, a function area for 200, along with offices, a café, and a bar.
