Exclusive Tour of Brisbane Broncos Facility
Join the ACA – Qld/NT on 4 September for an exclusive tour of the Brisbane Broncos’ new training, administration and community facility at Red Hill.
The $25 million project was designed by architects Populous and constructed by Hutchinson Builders. The Brisbane Broncos’ new home encompasses a three-level facility with training and rehabilitation areas, coaching staff offices and player meeting and lounge areas, a community education centre, administration offices, and a retail store and cafe.
The building has a new training field to the north, which is the primary visual focus from inside the building. The field is partly on grade and partly on suspended slab, and straddles the adjacent Ithaca Creek in the north-west corner. The eastern facade addresses Fulcher Road with serrated anodised aluminium fins providing solar protection but also mimicking the local roof architecture of the surrounding Red Hill area.
