Adelaide Oval Western Grandstand, Australia

Total engineering services for iconic grandstand

Working closely with the South Australian Cricket Association and consultancy team, Aurecon delivered:

  • The feature grandstand roof, which is amongst the lightest and most elegant in Australia
  • Evacuation modelling to maximise patron safety and improve amenity over Building Code of Australia’s ‘deemed to satisfy’ requirements
  • Specialist sports lighting to maintain lighting levels for day-night events
  • Long span floor structures for maximum patron amenity and flexibility of space
  • Facilitated and led safe design procedures to control safety risks during construction, operation and maintenance

Importantly, the heritage elements were successfully conserved and interwoven with the modern design features.

The new iconic grandstand opened for the 2010 Ashes Second Test Match to rave reviews from the media, public and members alike with the feature grandstand roof capturing everyone’s imagination.
