The Jakarta International Velodrome will be a vibrant and dynamic stadium, developed primarily as a key venue for the 2018 Asian Games. The project will add vitality to the immediate precinct for years to come through the provision of legacy opportunities inherent in the siting and planning of the facility. The site is located within a broader sports precinct and is arranged to suit a master planned experience with a focus on public plaza spaces for large spectator movements.
The design combines a series of earth berms that contribute to the public arrival sequence. The Velodrome has a membrane roof and wall cladding above the concourse level, which includes translucent elements to allow natural daylight into the building whilst transforming the building into a glowing lantern in the evening.
The building is a permanent facility, however the roof technology is based on our construction partner ES Global Ltd’s kit of modular structural parts, most commonly used in their temporary sports and event buildings.
The building will be used for cycling competition and training as well as for events and court sports on the infield, including the popular Futsal.
This project follows COX’s recently completed Indonesia Convention and Exhibition Centre, which is also an Asian Games Venue, as well as the Queensland State Velodrome for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The recent work in velodromes continues COX Sport’s demonstrated performance spanning over 40 years, beginning with Canberra’s Bruce Stadium.
