Contract Sum

Working closely with Cricket NSW, Buildcorp successfully delivered Sydney Thunder’s state-of-the-art new home as well as the Western Hub for the NSW Blues and Breakers.

Located in Sydney Olympic Park, Cricket Central was delivered whilst weather and global supply chain challenges were seamlessly managed and risk mitigated by Buildcorp. The new community and sports facility is fronted to the north by Parramatta River, to the west by Silverwater Road, to the South by Industrial lands and to the east by the Silverwater Correctional Facility.

The new facility houses training and playing facilities including:

  • Elite level indoor cricket training hall
  • Full size playing ovals
  • 45 outdoor training nets
  • Elite level gymnasium
  • Medical and rehabilitation facilities
  • Aquatic recovery and rehabilitation pools
  • Lecture theatre and meeting rooms
  • Administration offices and supporting facilities for Cricket NSW
  • Equality focused facilities
  • An indoor centre consisting of a library and cafe
  • Back of house and support areas, including storage, property, plant rooms and maintenance sheds
  • External soft and hard landscape, including car parking

Home to six professional teams, the NSW Breakers and Blues, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers BBL and WBBL teams provides an opportunity for the community to come and see what a high-performance facility looks like and how it operates.

Throughout the tight construction programme of just under twelve months, Buildcorp proactively managed environmental and contamination challenges. Originally home to gasworks in the 1950’s, the site required professional and strict Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA) policies and procedures compliance.

The Buildcorp delivery team faced the complexities of problematic ground conditions, procurement of specialist facilities and regular extreme weather events, all while overcoming productivity challenges from labour shortages and supply chain issues associated with the global pandemic. Despite these hurdles, Buildcorp has been able to provide an outstanding quality product, and one that Cricket NSW can truly consider a ‘World Class’ training facility.

Cricket Central, we believe, is the leading cricket facility in the world, combining high performance, community and office space in the same precinct and we couldn’t have achieved the level of excellence we have in this facility without Buildcorp.
