Copr Bay Construction Progress

← Back to news & insight

Construction of Copr Bay phase one continues, with new drone footage and images revealed of the site.

The 3,500-capacity indoor arena is the focal point of the scheme, with the landmark pedestrian bridge, mixed use development and multi-storey carpark beyond. The coastal park is now clearly formed, ready for planting.

AFL Architects was commissioned at the start of 2019 by Buckingham Group. The practice, taking control of the design at the end of RIBA Stage 3, carried out a full review of the original concept design and are now acting as delivery architects. The team is also responsible for the redesign of the seven-storey car park and 33-unit residential development.

At 8654m2, the arena will have a capacity of 3,500 for concert mode, 2196 for theatre mode and 788 for conference mode. The hospitality areas have been created to be highly flexible to optimise revenue.
