Sydney Cricket Ground – Bradman Nobel Stand

The project was awarded to Barnwell Cambridge as a “Design and Construct” turn-key solution for all related services. The SCG was required to remain operational throughout the upgrade, with a number of different games of varied sports played during the construction period.

The project incorporated bespoke utilisation of systems not previously installed in order to achieve the Alternative Fire Engineered Solution developed for the site. The PA system was developed to include UPS supplies and fire rated dual ring communications fibres to enable its integration in the fire services EWIS together with central extra low voltage power feeds from basement controls to all fire shutters at podium and centre roof being backed by UPS and generators, all required to meet the stringent Fire Engineered Report
for the site. DMX lighting control was developed to incorporate the house lighting services and sports lighting through a single user interface.

The project was recognised by our peers as another award winning project from our team.
