02 Mar Case Study: iEDM Internships

Our Directors are passionate about the role that industry can play in the education of today's Students. We believe that integration in the workplace during study is essential to increase the employability of graduates. Our Chairman, John Howe sits on the Advisory Boards to both Griffith University and the Study Gold Coast, Employability Programme. "We have developed learned outcome strategies to ensure that Students receive a well-rounded experience, attaining skills that will greatly increase their  value to any organisation upon the completion of their degree." - John Howe, Chairman iEDM After completing a 2016 iEDM Internship, including work on the Gold Coast 600, engineering student Brad Sullivan has just completed an eight week summer holiday contract with iEDM at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide prior to beginning his fourth year of study. During the internship, Brad was exposed to skills in quality assurance, procurement, client communication, engineering standards, contractor engagement and work health and safety. The skills learnt during the internship has meant that Brad has been a valued asset at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide. Brad’s role in Adelaide was Structural Engineering Administrator, including Site Inspections, for the 340 odd temporary structures. This is a significant role working with our engineering team and involved detailed analysis of...

28 Nov Final Sydney 500

Its late November 2016, we have demobilised from Gold Coast 600 site in Surfers Paradise, we have mobilised construction for the 2017 Clipsal 500 in Adelaide and we are in the final week of building the last ever Coates Hire Sydney 500. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling for our team. We are absolutely jumping-out-our-skin excited for Newcastle in November next year, but we have loved our time in Sydney Olympic Park. The blood, sweat and tears our team put into the first year at Homebush, as it was then, has given a few of us a special connection to the space and people whom we achieved it with. Everyone who works in the Event Industry can understand this. It’s when you go so hard for a long period of time getting that first-time event delivered, your workmates are your family, you’re operating purely on adrenaline and it’s not uncommon for deliriousness to take over at any time of the day. In that first year, iEDM was engaged in February and tasked with the design, engineering, delivery of $20M civil works and fabrication and the planning and delivery of the overlay for the Event in the first week of December. It was a massive undertaking and...

13 Oct Newcastle Street Circuit Confirmed!

Destination New South Wales (DNSW) and Supercars Australia recently announced Newcastle as the new location for the Supercars 2017 Grand Finale. iEDM are extremely excited by this news and proud to have played a role in the development of this Event to date. iEDM have been working with Supercars and DNSW since March 2015 to find a suitable home for the grand finale of the Championship following its 8 year term in Sydney Olympic Park was coming to a close. iEDM have conducted design and engineering feasibilities for various locations in New South Wales to find the best option for Supercar racing and to maximise social and economic benefits to regions. Newcastle is the perfect fit. East Newcastle is an aesthetically stunning and historical area, surrounded by 2 world class beaches and the famous Newcastle Port. It is a visual we believe a lot of Australian’s will be amazed with, and in contrast with the ‘steel city’ images many people may have in their minds. Destination NSW’s objective, along with the significant numbers of tourists that will flock to the event, is that these images, beamed into millions of homes through Supercars television deals, will encourage interest and visitation in the area. We are...

28 Jun Increased investment activity for Australian motor sport venues

It is great to see some movement around the strategic investment in motor sport complexes right across Australia. Over the last 20 years or so, we have sadly seen a gradual decline in both number and quality of motor sport complexes around the country. Largely driven out by urban sprawl, various facilities have either closed or had their operating hours severely reduced. Of the 300 odd venues in Australia, the only circuits which come to mind as examples of venues that have undergone significant investment of facilities are Phillip Island, Barbagallo and Sydney Motorsport Park. In 2015, CAMS commissioned a report by Ernst and Young to establish the value of Motor sport to the Australian economy (http://docs.cams.com.au/Public%20Documents/CAMS_EYReport_201014_LR.pdf) . The report backed up what those of us in the industry know: Motorsport is the 4th most watched sport in Australia, only behind Australian Rules, NRL and Horse Racing. There are more than 150,000 motor sport participants across Australia. The sport creates over 16,000 direct jobs, over half of which are generated from circuits. Motorsport circuits are significant drivers of regional city income, with more than half of the participants of any circuit visiting from outside the local area. Participants spend an average of 9 days away each year...

29 Feb Clipsal 500 Adelaide – Extension to iEDM Agreement

iEDM and the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) have extended their current agreement, for iEDM to act as the Engineering Project Managers for the Clipsal 500 Adelaide until the 2018 Event. On behalf of the SATC, iEDM annually deliver roughly $16M of temporary overlay infrastructure for this iconic Australian Event. “We are very proud to extend our association with this major event and our strong partnership with our Client in the SATC. This Event is one of the largest temporary infrastructure builds in Australia which hosts around 300,000 patrons over 4 days. It’s a substantial logistics and planning operation and I am always proud of the way our team applies themselves and the manner which they deliver this project” says iEDM Managing Director, Liam Howe. The 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide has undergone significant change, which has been driven and implemented through the last 6 months of detailed planning and procurement. Over 90% of the existing supplier contracts for the Clipsal 500 Adelaide were required to undergo re-tender for the 2016 Event. At the same time, there was a strong desire from the SATC to improve quality of infrastructure supplied at the Event. The result is that iEDM have delivered a major facelift in the...

14 Jan Mount Panorama – Second Circuit

iEDM have been working with Bathurst Regional Council over the past few months on a preliminary feasibility for a second permanent motor sport circuit at Mount Panorama. Because of the street nature (and subsequently the residents) of the existing Mount Panorama Circuit, there are restrictions over its use throughout the year. The objective of the second circuit is to build on Bathurst’s reputation for being a motor sport destination by developing a venue which can be used throughout the year and for multiple uses. As a regional market, a tourist attraction that will consistently bring people to Bathurst can create very significant economic and social impact. A world class second circuit has the potential to attract activities such as: Major Events; Motor Sport Events / Series Rounds; Corporate Ride Days; Manufacturer / Motor Sport Testing; Manufacturer Ride Days; Training; and Motor Sport Industry Participation. All of the above activities will drive economic impact into the region and sustainably build on the once-a-year major impact of the Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar Event. Whilst the design and location of the circuit cannot be released at this stage, we can say that we are very excited about it. Anytime you are working with natural undulation on these types of projects, there is the...

12 Jan ABCB Temporary Structures Standard

Late in 2015, the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) released the much awaited (well, for us maybe) Standard - Temporary Structures. The Standard has been a long time coming for those of us in Australia who have struggled to meet the deemed to satisfy provisions of the BCA (or NCC) as well as other State specific building legislation when planning and constructing temporary structures. The Standard helps to clear up and soften some elements within the BCA and how they are applied to temporary structures. For instance, the Standard provides differing levels of engineering parameters to clearly identify the obvious lower risk associated with structures that are only in place for a very short period of time. The document will no doubt aid the further development of a lot of Event's structure policies. However, it is not the silver bullet we were probably all hoping for and there remains a lot of 'grey' which Event Promoters need to look at with their professional consultants. Further, at this stage, each State's relevant law's prevail over the Standard and it is unclear how, or if, each of the States will adopt or reference the Standard. iEDM provided advice to the ABCB during the development of the Standard from the point of view of an Event...

07 Sep Overlay for Pan Pacific Swimming Championships

The 2014 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships recently hit the water in the newly revamped Gold Coast Aquatic Centre following a $42 Million face lift as the first major test for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The redevelopment of the Aquatic Centre is one of the most significant Commonwealth Games legacy projects and provides a world class venue for the Gold Coast. The Centre was completed in July 2014, just in time for the PPSC and now includes two 50m competition pools, a dive pool, a 25m pool and two spectator legacy podiums. Integrated Event Delivery Management (iEDM) was awarded the contract to undertake the engineering project management for the PPSC overlay in May 2013, thirteen months prior to the commencement of bump in of the facility. “It was important us to be involved in the PPSC overlay as it was the first major test for the facility and as a proud Gold Coast Company we want to prove that we can deliver world class temporary venues in our home town” said Director Liam Howe; “Under the brief from our Client, The City of Gold Coast, we sourced primarily local suppliers to deliver the $1.5 million overlay”. The bump in for the temporary infrastructure overlay...

12 Dec iEDM Extend V8 Supercars Agreement

As the 2013 season concluded on the weekend with the Sydney NRMA Motoring and Services 500, iEDM are very excited to announce that we have extended our current Engineering Project Management agreement with V8 Supercars for an additional 3 years. The Agreement includes the Townsville 400, Gold Coast 600 and the Sydney 500 V8 Supercar Events, which iEDM have been delivering on behalf of V8 Supercars since 2009. iEDM Chairman John Howe says the agreement reflects the strong relationship between the two companies. “V8 Supercars are an extension of our iEDM family. On behalf of all of the Directors and staff at iEDM, we would like to thank V8 Supercars and in particular the Events team for their continued support of our organisation and our growth over the past 5 years.” Securing the EPM role with V8 Supercars for their major street circuits caps off an extremely successful year for iEDM. “Our reputation for delivery of overlay for major temporary events has led to many opportunities for our group.” Mr Howe says, “Our proven ability to deliver world class event infrastructure in complex public environments secured iEDM the contracts for the Engineering Project Managers role for the 2014 – 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide...
