Refurbishing the Broadbeach Bowls Club for the Commonwealth Games

imageThe HHH Architects team was recently charged with refurbishing the Broadbeach Bowls Club, a popular icon of the Gold Coast and a thriving social hub for the local community.

There’s never a bad time to bring new life into an established facility, but this refurbishment was timed perfectly to prepare the club for the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games – the much-anticipated sporting event that will see the entire city overflowing with visitors and competitive spirit.

Whilst obviously being an ideal place for relaxing and dining between matches, the club will also play host to a number of key events during the Games, including:

• The Australia v Scotland Test Series
• The Blue Diamonds Pairs
• The Australian Open
Our Gold Coast architects’ work on the Broadbeach Bowls Club has ensured that it will provide a fantastic venue for athletes and spectators from across the country and all around the globe. With a $4M budget, HHH Architects were able to strip the 40-year-old building back to basics before giving it a complete make-over.

Highlights of the project included:

• Creating a new administration area
• Moving and expanding the gaming area
• Incorporating a new space for sports betting
• Refurbishing and expanding the dining facilities
• Creating new outdoor terraces, allowing guests to easily enjoy the lovely Gold Coast weather
• Modernising and expanding the commercial kitchen
• Adding new support spaces and other facilities to cater for the increased demand that will come during the Games.

The renovation has been a long-term project, having commenced in November last year, however the final result is well worth the countless hours that have gone into preparing this beloved bowls club for the Commonwealth Games.
