For over 80 years the game of basketball has been the spirit of Bendigo. The new stadium has grown to an astounding 4000 spectator capacity. We worked on creating a shade screen that is functional, safe and good looking. Using a perforated screen with small holes made the screen strong and impossible to climb. The result is this beautiful iconic building with its ageless façade design that will be loved by all for years to come.
The revitalisation of the Bendigo Solders Memorial Institute combined the conservation of the original 1921 building with the addition of a new pavilion constructed to AA-standard gallery space, designed to Passive House standard. The new pavilion gallery and storage space allows the organisation to properly display and store highly important and sensitive pieces for all Bendigo and its visitors to enjoy.
The Weathering Steel (Corten) façade ensures the newly constructed pavilion doesn’t overwhelm the beautiful original neo-classical building.
A custom framing and fixing system designed in-house at Wild, ensured the buildings airtight fabric upheld. Our extensive detailed shop drawings were instrumental in delivering a millimetre perfect façade that will mature over time as it continues to weather.
We are very proud to have been involved in such a key part in the revitalisation of this historically significant building that will serve our Soldiers, Greater Bendigo and its many visitors for years to come.
The Bendigo railway station is the terminus of the Bendigo line and opened on 21 October 1862. The station was rebuilt after being destroyed by fire on 23 December 1965. In recent time an uplift to the façade is been done to rejuvenate the historical station and buildings. A standout of our work is where our Façade team made (inhouse) elevators shafts external grates cladding, a remarkable feat of precision. Other installations include black powder aluminium blades and interlocking cladding across the walk way and the panelling along the ramps on both sides. The work done here will stand the test of time, as the marksmanship by the Wild Façade team was remarkable.
