Stephen Logan is Aurecon’s Building Sciences Leader. He has worked on iconic international stadia projects, including the landmark Wembley National Stadium, Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium and the multi award winning Perth Arena.
World-leading stadium design means thinking outside of the box to deliver innovative designs that maximise a stadium’s potential. Read more about some of Aurecon's world-leading stadia projects.
Cities often have huge stadium assets that were built some decades ago, many of which are only used to host a dozen events a year, at best. These stadiums often become more of a municipal burden than an asset - no longer in step with the demands of an entertainment hungry, more sophisticated public. What can be done to breathe new life and sustainability into these assets? And in the case of new stadium projects, how can they be designed in such a way that they remain an asset far into the future? This new series explores the ins and outs of future-proofing world-leading sports stadia, including showcasing world-class examples of stadia projects as well as technical and commercial techniques designed to ensure game-changing sporting facilities.

The Adelaide Oval’s new ICT capabilities respond to current patron and operator expectations and requirements. The project has also set an unprecedented benchmark for stadia projects in Australia to match or exceed for many years to come.

The concept behind a sports stadium has come full circle, from a place to see your favourite athletes pitting their skills against competitors, to a modern Roman Colosseum where the public gather, clutching smart phones, for a multimedia and multi-sensorial experience! This a field which Aurecon both works in and is passionate about. Our experts have built up extensive knowledge in this field through years of experience on some of the most iconic sports stadia ever created.This new series will share our people’s latest insights on designing world-leading sports stadia, including the technical and commercial techniques that ensure game-changing sporting facilities.

“Years of specialist building collapse and building instability training were put to use assisting with immediate live rescue and victim recovery followed by emergency shoring and building stabilisation works.” Carl Devereux, Christchurch, New Zealand February 2011
It is estimated that in the year 1800, 3% of the world’s population lived in cities. By 1900, that number had reached 14% and by 2000, it had risen to 47%.1 Urbanisation has continued apace, with the tipping point reached in 2007, a year in which demographers estimated that the majority of the planet’s population was living in cities. This trend is unlikely to cease, and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Population Division estimates that by 2030, 5 billion people, or 60% of the world’s population, will be ‘urbanised’.
