What do the Wallabies, Wallaroos, UTS sports science students and everroll® flooring all have in common? Answer: they are all co-residents of the UTS Rugby Australia Building in Sydney.
The Rugby Australia Building is a ‘first-of-a-kind’ facility that supports collaboration between tertiary-level sports students and professional-level athletes, by means of co-location.
The facility’s unique combination of users includes:
1. SPORTS PROFESSIONALS
- Wallabies (Australian Men’s National Rugby Union Team)
- Wallaroos (Australian Women’s Nationals Rugby Union Team)
- Australian Men’s Sevens Rugby Teams
- Australian Women’s Sevens Rugby Teams
2. SPORTS EDUCATION
- Students (from exercise science & management programs, physiotherapy & rehabilitation and sports media)
3. COMMUNITY GROUPS
- Other national sporting teams
- International sporting teams
- Local schools
- Sporting clubs
- Community groups
- Indigenous organizations
The building’s capacity to accommodate such a diverse, high-performance group of users is testament to its carefully considered design and construction. The facility’s interior elements are also put to the test on a daily basis, no more so than the floor coverings that take a pounding from morning to night. The floor coverings endure constant foot-traffic; impact from sports activities and residual contaminants generated by regular, high performance use.
Only certain floor coverings are suitable for a facility of this nature because there are so many factors to be considered. Some of the most important considerations are acoustics, hygiene, comfort, slip-resistance and endurance. If you would like to learn why everroll® made the grade for this award winning building; or you would simply like to see more pictures and videos of the facility’s interior, then visit our project page:
The project page also details the specific flooring ranges used within individual zones, including their thickness and colour.
