Stoddart were approached in 2016 to develop a modular, large span bus shelter design for the Gungahlin Bus Station upgrade in the ACT. Stoddart installed a total of 92m of architecturally inspired shelterss and walkways that bring together a wide range of materials and resources from all around Australia.
The custom bus shelter design is eye-catching, standing at over 4 metres high and 5 metres in total span. The materials include striking perforated plywood timber soffit, flanked by bronze powder coated cladding. The shelters also feature IP rated downlights, DDA seating, CCTV and PA speakers, illuminated lightboxes, and recycled glass-bead acoustic panels sitting behind the plywood soffit.
Projects like these highlight how critical Stoddart's end-to-end service is in delivering outstanding solutions for clients in Australia and New Zealand.
Stoddart Infrastructure were commissioned by Adelaide Airport to design, fabricate, and install several walkways as part of the 2019 centenary celebrations of the first flight from England to Australia in 1919. A two-stage project, the first of which has been completed and consists of two cantilevered walkways, facilitates patron transfer between the long term car park and terminal building via the Vimy Vickers Memorial – the focus of the celebrations.
The custom walkways are based on the Stoddart Infrastructure Decco walkway; characterized by its large-span, curved cantilever roof design, and modular bolt-together assembly methodology. For this application the frame was altered to give a more individual aesthetic to the structure and full-length guttering included, as well as the integration of custom perforated picture mesh panels with travel-themed motifs between the posts, providing fantastic visual interest to the canopies. Additionally, patron-focused LED courtesy lighting was added for patron comfort.
Constructed out of mild steel, and then hot-dip galvanised and powder coated, these walkways have been fully designed and engineered to suit their location. Stoddart also completed the civil and electrical design as part of the scope of works, and project managed every stage of the job including civil works, shelter installation, and project handover.
These walkways will deftly assist in the commemoration of one of Australia’s iconic aviation achievements, and Stoddart are proud to be a part of not only these celebrations, but our continued reputation and involvement in providing high quality, highly functional, but also highly aesthetic transport infrastructure at all of Australia’s major airports.
The Rosanna Station upgrade in 2018 gave Stoddart Infrastructure another opportunity to work with Ace Contractors, in the supply of a range of transport infrastructure.
Stoddart's contribution covers the entire station area; Station Bins and Station Seats can be found across the platforms, concourse, and Turnham Ave bus interchange, which is also accompanied by two Evo shelters. One of the shelters is a standard Stoddart Infrastructure Evo MKII shelter, but the other is a heavily modified Evo Premium shelter featuring high quality architectural finishes that help tie the concourse to the Turnham Ave interchange.
Consisting of black powder coated aluminium framing and cladding, with a slot-perforated plywood soffit, custom LED strip lighting, and plinth integrated seating, the quality of both the fabrication and finishes is evident. The same can also be said for the polished stainless steel Station Suite.
This consistent approach to balancing aesthetics with durability that has seen Stoddart products become commonplace, across not only the Level Crossing Removal Authority projects, but within public transport projects Australia-wide.
In addition to providing a plethora of public transport infrastructure in and around the Ringwood Station upgrade, Stoddart Infrastructure also installed approximately 130 square metres of perforated metal panelling along the southern wall of the carpark adjacent to the Station itself.
Stoddart were required to work in with a tight delivery program on the project, and integrate the framing and screening into the surrounding structural elements and undulating site. With extensive experience in architectural metalwork, these challenges were overcome and a clean, uniform outcome was achieved. The screens successfully hide the rock wall behind, visually break up a large surface area, and add interest and texture to this area of Ringwood Station.
Stoddart Infrastructure worked in partnership with Coleman Rail, and the South Australian Government and their design team to deliver five 20m walkway shelters along the new tram extension in William Street, Adelaide.
The walkway shelters have been developed to reflect Adelaide’s commitment to environmental sustainability and its recent designation as a ‘Solar City’ with the roof structure created with modular solar panels integrated into the glass panel. The central beam houses the solar powered lighting as well as signage and acts as a visual anchor for the cantilevered roof struts, all of which serve to provide a comfortable environment for users
In June 2008, this project was awarded the 2008 Adelaide Prize presented by the Lord Mayor.
Stoddart Infrastructure, working in conjunction with Transport for NSW and Northshore Paving, fabricated and installed multiple modified double-length Classic Shelters as part of the Gordon Station Interchange Upgrade in 2015.
In addition to Stoddart Infrastructure’s large-span, custom walkways in the interchange itself, the Double Classic shelters are utilised opposite the station to facilitate large-volume patron transfer between bus routes. They seamlessly retain the Classic shelter’s elegant design and durable construction, but add more weather protection and comfortable seating to enhance patron comfort and perfectly suit its application.
Stoddart Infrastructure was approached by Cox Richardson Architects to design a new ticket booth for the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour, Sydney. The ticket booth is an innovative adaptation of the Evo shelter and utilises glass and Aluminium panelling, a security door and specialised ticket windows with a hearing loop.
The finished ticket booth is completely watertight and has been finished with both external signage and vinyl decals. Internally, the booth is fitted with computer desks, drawers, storage cupboards and a split system air conditioner.
Utilising artist’s impressions, Stoddart Infrastructure worked with Kingston City Council and Public Transport Victoria (PTV) to design, fabricate, and install a 43m shelter and safety barrier combination as part of a major upgrade of a key bus interchange in the suburb of Moorabbin in 2014.
Based off the popular Evo shelter design, the solution has successfully created a visual and physical anchor to the bus interchange and more importantly provided a safe, comfortable, and protective area for public transport patrons. Key features include vandal-resistant design principles, solar powered lighting, custom perforated mesh, DDA compliance, and protection from - but also access to - the rail infrastructure behind.
Formely known as Werribee Plaza, in 2013 the Pacific Werribee shopping centre underwent a major re-development. To cater for the large increase in customers to the complex Stoddart Infrastructure, in conjunction with PTV, provided a comprehensive range of transport-focused shelters and furniture to the project. Stoddart not only supplied several off-the-shelf products but also developed a high-impact, aesthetic, large-coverage feature structure based on the successful Stoddart Infrastructure Wellington shelter.
As well as providing a functional waiting area, and helping direct foot traffic towards the bus interchange, patron safety and comfort have been maximised with ample overhead protection from the elements, high output lighting, integrated loud-speakers, and durable, vandal-resistant construction.
In 2012, Stoddart Infrastructure was a significant contributor to a sweeping upgrade of the parking infrastructure at Perth International Airport. Working in conjunction with the airport and Brierty, Stoddart designed and installed over 350m of walkway to provide for car parking and bus transfer patrons.
Two designs were employed for the project - one is a modification of the Stoddart Infrastructure Exhibition Walkway, and the other principle design is a custom Stoddart Infrastructure Decco Walkway. Chosen to best compliment existing canopies at the airport, it features a curved 3 metre span roof, jogged sections to follow pathways and buildings, and simple and durable construction. By tailoring our product to suit its environment Stoddart Infrastructure successfully developed a clean, integrated solution to link the car parks to the terminals, and best accomodate customers of Perth International Airport.
Stoddart Infrastructure’s products are commonplace throughout the Melbourne CBD, so it is only fitting that one of the city’s most iconic landmarks would engage Stoddart in 2014 to help design, fabricate, install, and set-up a digital signage solution to advertise their church and church events.
Standing proudly in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral - and close to Flinders St Station and Federation Square - the monolithic, sculptural design houses high resolution outdoor TV screens and their hardware in a rear-access, vandal resistant casing. It also features stain-glass decals, integrated lighting, custom paintwork, as well as full integration to the church’s IT systems, enabling remote control of the digital content.
As part of the Tarneit Train Station upgrade, Public Transport Victoria engaged the services of Stoddart Infrastructure in 2013 to provide transport and patron infrastructure across the forecourt and carpark of the station.
In addition to a suite of Metro shelters for bus transfers, Stoddart Infrastructure were responsible for realising a bespoke centrepiece shelter in the forecourt of the station building. Working from concept sketches Stoddart designed, fabricated, and installed the architecturally inspired structure focusing on high quality finishes, durability, patron safety and comfort. It notably features a timber ceiling, high output LED lighting, and solar power.
It also reinforces Stoddart Infrastructure’s longstanding ability to provide highly functional and durable structures that don’t sacrifice our clients’ original design intent and aesthetic.
Stoddart Infrastructure put the flexibility of one of it's flagship designs to the test when working closely with the Victorian Racing Club (VRC) to install a suite of Ticket Booths and a Staff Kiosk at Flemington Racecourse.
These fantastic adaptations of the Stoddart Infrastructure Evo Shelter feature full glass panelling, security doors, sliding windows, and are further brought to life through the application of contravision decals. The final products are a fitting testament to Stoddart Infrastructure's ability to create innovative infrastructure solutions for any client.
Stoddart Infrastructure's contribution to the Mernda Rail Extension project in the outer Northern suburbs of Melbourne - completed in August 2018 - represents a fantastic co-ordination of resources and experience in delivering a wide range of products into a wide range of settings along the 8km of new rail line.
The contract, secured with the principal contractor John Holland and worth about $1.73 million in total, encompassses the supply and installation of a mix of standard and bespoke freestanding and plinth mounted seating, bins, bollards, bike racks, balustrading, anti-throw screens, and signage across Hawkstowe Station, Middle Gorge Station, Mernda Station, and the Lakes Boulevard Rail Overpass.
Of particular note is the combination anti-throw screens and balustrading on the Lakes Boulevard Overpass and the bespoke timber focussed seating across the 3 new train stations. At the Lakes Boulevard Overpass, steel staunchions custom fabricated to suit the various elevation changes recieve large PerfArt panels with vandal resistant fixings and site specific handrailing. And for the bespoke seating, Stoddart liaised with the architects to refine a range of seating utilising large timber sections mounted to rolled and galvanised steel framing.
