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...

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...

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...

17 Jul Pukekohe Park Upgrade

Last week we were once again delivering the Sucrogen Townsville 400. It is such a pleasure being involved in this Event with V8 Supercars and we were really proud of the product our collective teams put together. It is such a great community event and one that we hope to be a part of for a long time to come. Congratulations to everyone involved. For the past few months, we have been working with V8 Supercars on an upgrade proposal for Pukekohe Park in New Zealand. During the Townsville event last week, it was announced by V8SC that this proposal was successful in obtaining Government funding and the NZ round of the Championship would move to Pukekohe Park in April, 2013. iEDM provided conceptual master planning, funding feasibility and application documentation for V8 Supercars to assist in this process. The NZ$6.6 million project, which will be jointly funded by Auckland Council, Major Events New Zealand and V8 Supercars, will provide safety, operational and patron amenity upgrades to the existing circuit. iEDM will be providing all engineering project management, design and delivery of these upgrades as well as event overlay master planning and detailed design. Works will include resurfacing parts of the track, installation of...

West Australian Government has announced that the upgrades to the Barbagallo Raceway will be complete in time for the 2012 Trading Post Perth Challenge. iEDM, with Mark Skaife, was commissioned by the WA Department of Sports and Recreation to develop the original motorsport concept masterplan for the $15 Million upgrade, including internal pit lane and facilities design, V8 Supercar paddock layout, track safety improvements and speed curve analysis to assist the WA based design and construct team.
