Smith Collective at Commonwealth Games Village

Our energy-efficient barbecue cooktops are manufactured by us at our factory in Melbourne. This is part of our commitment to delivering quality products and exceptional support to our clients, partners, and the local community.

During the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the $550 million Athletes Village and parklands housed 6,600 international athletes and officials. Situated on 29 hectares, it features 18 purpose-built dwellings, including 1,170 apartments and 82 townhouses.

With sporting triumphs recorded and athletes returned home, the Smith Collective has transformed the former Athletes Village into a thriving residential and retail centre, the first built-to-rent housing development of its kind in Australia. Part of the 200-hectare Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct and home to Queensland’s leading universities and hospitals, the development offers vibrant village living, comprehensive retail and community facilities, as well as the enviable Gold Coast lifestyle that was broadcast to the world.

With projections for 2,500 inhabitants, the Smith Collective’s newest residents are enjoying exclusive access to an enviable range of the finest sport and leisure amenities Australia has to offer including four pools, gym and fitness areas, and a running track. Their 7.3-hectare green space ‘backyard’ also includes extensive landscaped areas with walking paths and communal recreation areas, as well as our CC2 energy-efficient public barbecue cooktops with customised Modular cabinets.

To provide the most durable, reliable, and energy-efficient public barbecue facilities for athletes and future residents, Christie products were specified for all communal outdoor cooking areas.  Our patented modular series barbecue cabinet offers an ideal solution for most public open spaces due to their proven safety, hygiene, and market-leading cooking performance.

The legacy of the Commonwealth Games will provide lasting residential living and community benefits for many decades to come. We are extremely proud to be a part of that legacy.
