Sports and leisure

Aurecon has engineered and supervised the construction of some of the world’s top sporting stadia and leisure facilities. From luxury hotels and golf resorts to sports stadia seating tens of thousands of spectators, our structural and façade specialists have made notable contributions, supporting inspirational architectural design with engineering ingenuity.

Financial viability is of course crucial to any sports or leisure project – our designs are cost efficient and support quality development delivered on or ahead of schedule.

We provide a complete range of engineering design solutions, encompassing the full project life cycle, ranging from civil and transportation engineering through to structural design, wet building and fire services design, and electronic and electrical reticulation systems design.

Our market leading expertise in fire, wind and acoustic engineering as well as the application of 3D simulation tools and techniques helps create comfortable spaces that meet stringent health and safety requirements. 3D simulations assist us in modelling how people behave in and around our structures, enabling us to create optimum solutions which are safe, comfortable and cost effective.

In terms of stadia, our innovative thinking and expertise enhances the form, function and affordability of stadia. Technological advances encompassing opening roofs, in-seat communications, in-stadium television and radio, and moving seating tiers, for example, are causing stadia design to evolve dramatically and we are continually reviewing new technologies for inclusion in future planning scenarios. 

We have contributed to the Football Stadium Advisory Design Council (UK) design guides on good practice, and our people have also received individual awards from the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) for papers presented on stadia schemes.

Aurecon has extensive experience in terms of eco and golf estate developments. Encompassing club houses, wellness centres, convenience retail developments and exclusive residential dwellings, these developments require an integrated approach. Our expertise in civil and electrical engineering, construction monitoring and electronic and security installation services mean we are well equipped to design world-class developments which take both sustainability and economic viability into account.

We partner with our clients in this market to realise their vision, delivering developments that will be ongoing assets
