Undertaken by Cricket Australia, the Shaw Road Pavilion project builds on their previous investment in the BUPA National Cricket Centre of Excellence (another DMA project) with a further investment in the Allan Border Field precinct with in a new community facility on Shaw Road.
Designed for use by, and development of, cricketers of all levels, the new Shaw Road community facility replaces temporary shipping container facilities previously used by the Northern Suburbs District Cricket Club. It provides a venue for State, National and Youth Championships, and a training facility for both elite and community teams.
Design of Shaw Road Pavilion commenced in 2019 with our DMA Engineers team engaged by Cricket Australia to design and document the Hydraulic, Mechanical and Electrical services for the pavilion, including sports lighting to the Shaw Road main oval and training area. We were also engaged for the inspection of the services installation throughout the construction phase.
Some features of our work included:
- Design of electrical supply for lighting to Ian Healy oval compliant to live streaming levels (Pseudo Class 1) and Alan Pettigrew & Geoff Dymock ovals compliant to Class 2 light levels.
- Design of external and internal lighting and power to the pavilion in addition to making provisions for solar PV.
- Design of a large ‘end of trip’ style hot water system to allow simultaneous use by four cricket teams at the end of play.
- Significant collaboration with multiple stakeholder groups that will use the facility.
Construction commenced in mid-2020 and was opened to the public in late 2020
