As part of the LaTrobe University campus upgrade, Stoddart Outdoor Infrastructure has created a series of ‘smart’ shelters that are both architectural in design and innovative in application.
“Innovation is about the ability to recognise that nothing is impossible or cannot be improved upon.”
Stoddart is one of Australia’s leading stainless steel and metal fabricators manufacturing quality products in Australia for the architecture, building, infrastructure and food service industries. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge in designing, manufacturing, and installing outdoor infrastructure and street furniture, Stoddart has the facilities and expertise to provide innovative solutions for every project.
Stoddart Outdoor Infrastructure, along with Town and Park, is a division of Stoddart that specialises in aesthetically designed, high-quality shelters, walkways and customised street furniture that complement any urban landscape.
Stoddart Outdoor Infrastructure was commissioned by LaTrobe University to design, manufacture and install several ambitious shelters as part of the Science Drive bus terminus upgrade at the Bundoora campus in Victoria.
Utilising the flexibility of the Wellington shelter design, Stoddart was able to cleanly achieve not only the jagged architectural shelter layout but also the integration of a complex ‘smart’ photovoltaic roof system. This system includes solar roof glass panels, which are the only indication that the structures contribute to powering their own lighting as well as that of the surrounding buildings. A fully concealed hardware network enables remote control and monitoring of the system.
Constructed of aluminium with a bright white powdercoat finish, the long-span shelters also feature rear glass, advertising panels, and seating for patron comfort. Overall, the completed build combines a stunning aesthetic with considered functionality that strongly reinforces Stoddart’s dedication to innovative solutions.
Stoddart is a trusted supplier for large projects, such as the LaTrobe University project, where flexibility, experience, and a commitment to quality are crucial to delivering successful outdoor furniture solutions.
Stoddart’s philosophy is to provide innovative solutions to offer councils, governments, and private customers an Australian company they can trust to aesthetically design, manufacture and install high-quality transport and custom outdoor infrastructure. It is also why Stoddart is the leading end-to-end provider of premium outdoor infrastructure solutions across Australia and New Zealand.
