Contractor:Ceiling and Wall Contractors
Architect:Hassell & Cox
Location:Adelaide Oval, South Australia
Project Value:$535 Million
The Adelaide Oval is one of the most historical sporting venues in Australia hosting international and domestic cricket as well as Australian Rules football since 1870. Now, one of the most ‘picturesque’ stadiums in the world, it has been is remodelled to hold an additional 15,000 spectators to ensure it’s internationally reputation is maintained into the 21st century.
Before any construction could commence, the existing structure had to be demolished with the exception of the historic brick arches which were retained in the new grandstand.
Project ceiling contractor, Built Environs, has an almost two decade relationship with Judah Steel and this partnership, along with project architects Hassell & Cox, allowed all parties to work together efficiently in order to find solutions for any design obstacles that occurred during construction.
In total, Judah Steel supplied 100,000 lineal metres of KEY-LOCK® Furring Channel and Steel Stud Drywall Framing System for the site fit out.
The Western Grandstand was completed in November 2010, just in time for the Ashes series – and the complete remodel at Adelaide Oval was completed in late 2012.
