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...

12 Dec Where Did August Go!?

We can’t believe that it’s already September! This year is flying past and we just noticed that it has been a while since our last update. That’s because the action stations have been manned with our committed team tirelessly preparing for Events right around the country. Our last update was about the project in Pukekohe, NZ being on track back in February! Firstly, that project was a major success and the kerbs designed by iEDM in the photo attached, have since been applauded by CAMS and the FIA. 2013 has been a year of building for iEDM, cementing ourselves as the premier engineering project managers in the temporary overlay and events space. We have had new people join the team and we have opened up a new office in Adelaide. Given all the growth, we thought it was about time we updated the website with what we are up to at the moment: • Clipsal 500 Adelaide – After being awarded the Engineering Project Management Contract for the Clipsal 500 Adelaide, we have set up an office in Norwood, just a few minutes from the circuit. iEDM Director, Steve Orr has relocated to Adelaide full time to lead a team of new and experienced iEDM’ers...

15 Feb Pukekohe Raceway upgrade on track for ITM400 Auckland V8 Supercars

Work is progressing on schedule on the $6.6 million upgrade of Pukekohe Park Raceway in readiness to host April’s ITM 400 Auckland V8 Supercar event. The works include improving and replacing safety barriers, debris fencing and curbing, some resurfacing, major alterations to the pit area, new pit garages, control buildings and addition of two new corners on the back straight. After two months of demolition, earthworks and infrastructure improvements, construction is set to begin on the new pits and control buildings. “Work is largely on schedule and helped by the excellent weather,” said project manager, Christian Butler from Integrated engineering Delivery Management (iEDM). “We have added to the original scope of works with more infrastructures especially around drainage and storm water. “In the next two weeks the public will begin to see some major development. We have nearly finished the concrete pad and will begin construction of the new pits and also the control building.” The work has included the removal of 9000 cub m of soil to enlarge and level the pit area. “There’s now a large concrete surface to provide not only for the 32 pit garages but also service area behind the pits, and we have also re-aligned the pit lane as well.” The...

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.

18 Apr Barbagallo V8 Supercar Upgrade on Track

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. It was always going to be a tight construction period for the WA Department of Sports and Recreation and the photos on the WASCC Facebook page look great (check them out here – https://www.facebook.com/pages/WA-Sporting-Car-Club-Inc-Barbagallo-Raceway/101862439856407?ref=ts).

29 Mar QLD Workplace Health and Safety – Event Fact Sheet

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland have released a fact sheet on the new Harmonised WHS Legislation aimed at Event Organisers. The Fact Sheet can be found at this link: http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/workplace/resources/pdfs/whs-laws-public-events.pdf Whilst the fact sheet highlights the importance for Event Organisers to have all their WHS procedures in place, we think it probably falls a long way short of the type of information a lot of Organisers and Promoters are looking for. Events are complex businesses when looked at in light of the Harmonised WHS Legislation. We have volunteers, staff and construction activities in public environments and then to top it off, your venue is swamped by thousands of patrons. Most events, under the Act, will be viewed as construction sites and Organisers and Promoters are acting as the head construction company. That’s hard to fathom for a lot of Events and adjustments need to be made in the industry to meet the requirements of the Harmonised WHS Act. Would love to know what you think…...
