London to Jakarta in half the time

Fresh thinking was needed when Jakarta, host city of the 18th Asian Games, approached us to advise on the viability of delivering a new permanent velodrome facility to host track cycling events.

There was a relatively low budget available, while the authorities only had half the time typically required to tender, design, procure and build a velodrome.

Working in partnership with contractors ES Global and Wika, as well as architects Cox Architecture and BKM, we demonstrated that a permanent velodrome building could be delivered within the time and budget by using a temporary venue design and delivery approach.

Prefabricated structural components, previously used on the water polo and shooting venues for London 2012, were re-engineered so they could be deployed on a permanent-use building in a seismic zone.

A world-class cycling track, housed in a humidity-conditioned environment to provide both track longevity and comfort for the 3000 spectators, is on programme to be delivered in 50% less time than typically achieved. Moreover, the facility is costing less than many naturally ventilated venues.
