Invercargill Velodrome

The home of NZ indoor cycling for over a decade, The Invercargill Velodrome is an impressive project on a very large scale.  

A High Performance Profile


Project Detail

Opened May 26th 2006 by Prime Minister Helen Clark to seat 1050 spectators the job took 57 weeks to complete and since then has hosted regional and national competitions as well as Commonwealth Games qualifiers.

The vital component of the build is the racetrack itself, any moisture on the surface could spell disaster for those on the track and we all know how much it rains in Invercargill.

To protect such an asset, and to provide a cost effective roofing solution Mega5 from Calder Stewart Roofing was selected.

When commercial building design incorporates low pitches and large purlin spacing, Mega 5 is the profile of choice for architects & engineers. At an impressive 51mm rib height, Mega 5 offers one of the tallest profiles available in New Zealand. When performance is key the strength of this profile out performs others which is why it has being used on so many high profile industrial & commercial projects.
