Kingsmeadows Bus Stop


Clayton, IB and Wallis, LH and Green, RB and Hanlon, J and Skirving, MJ, Kingsmeadows Bus Stop, Kingsmeadows, Launceston, pp. 1 (2003) [Acquisition]


The Launceston City Council (LCC) provided a strict brief including volumetric limits, location and transparency requirements as well as reinforced concrete footing options. 2 design and construct teams enrolled in the Australian Timber Design Workshop Learning by Making to experience a condensed programme of design, construct and deliver to site a small public structure. Building approval was fast tracked with the LCC requiring Bus Stop Documentation, Engineering Specification and a detailed 1:5 scale model showing structural fixings and details. Each team collaboratively designed their Bus Stop and utilized the other team for critique and feedback. The ‘Chickenfeed’ team chose to use CNC router technology while the ‘Service Station’ team chose traditional construction techniques. Both bus stops were completed on time in the School of Architecture Workshop, leaving only delivery to site and bolting to footings on the last two days of the workshop. The bus stops received positive local publicity and were a part of a Council shopping precinct upgrade.
