ISO 20121

19 Nov 2020 Risk, Safety, Sustainability + Quality.

iEDM was conceived to better service the sports and events industry by creating a company which has the professional capabilities to design and deliver large-scale projects, whilst being focused enough to provide industry-relevant solutions. Over the years, we have developed systems and tools to add value and excel in the delivery of fast paced, special projects. Our Facility Management Software, is where we started and an example of how we integrate our contract administration, financial and change management to the all-important reporting.  Beyond this we recognised another opportunity to add value and streamline process, which led to the development of our bespoke Risk Management Software, designed specifically for event projects.  This is now being used by customers such as the Australian Grand Prix Corporation and Supercars Australia.   We have held a very important certification against ISO 45001 – Occupational Health & Safety, for some time.  Recently, we have also obtained system certification for ISO 9001 – Quality Management, and verification of compliance against ISO 31000 – Risk Management Guidelines.  This was all driven by a desire to instil faith and trust into our Clients, that we are managing their projects with integrity, transparency and in line with internationally recognised best practice.

Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000

26 Oct 2020 VenueSAFE™ at Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000

We’ve been busy developing our VenueSAFE™ app, designed specifically for events to deliver safe experiences and streamline workflows, for Venue and Event Managers, Suppliers, Personnel and Event Patrons. Live testing is a key component and although it’s still in BETA mode, its features are proving to be an invaluable tool in aiding the return of events. We recently put VenueSAFE™ to work at the pinnacle of motorsport in Australia, the 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Not only did it do what it was designed to, but being deployed at an official event gave us some further learnings that will help us build in more features that will contribute to positive change in future events. So what was it used for during the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000? All contractors, event personnel and competitors completed a site induction via the app prior to arrival on siteAll personnel complete a Daily Health questionnaire, verifying they are fit and healthy for work – the app notifies administrators at the exact moment someone fails a health check so they are able to respond promptlyAll personnel scan a QR code as they enter site allowing the client to monitor accurate, live data of who, when and how many personnel...

07 Jul 2018 10 Years at Townsville

It has been great this week to deliver and celebrate the 10th year of the Townsville 400 Supercars Championship Event. The Townsville event holds a special place for us, as it was the first event we delivered under the iEDM banner. We had six months to plan and delver the temporary overlay for the event - which was a massive effort. As a throwback, we have posted some photos from the first event. The crowd was huge, the atmosphere was amazing and the town embraced the entire carnival. Still something we remember very fondly and love coming back year after year.       ...

IEDM have entered into agreement with the Brisbane Airport Corporation for the detailed circuit design phase of the Brisbane Auto Mall. The Auto Mall is an exciting concept where automotive retailers and flagship dealers will sit alongside an iEDM designed test circuit and training facility. Alongside Mark Skaife, we have been involved in this project since project conception, providing BAC with circuit design and feasibility over the course of the last 4 years. We are truly excited to see this project move into the next stage and witness the commitment and the belief in the project from the Client. As a concept, we believe the Auto Mall will provide all users with an exceptional experience, providing a real point of difference for these retailers. The Brisbane Auto Mall is the next project in iEDM's growing experience in the design and delivery of permanent motor sport facilities. We are humbled and grateful to be a part of this iconic project....

13 Oct 2016 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...

29 Feb 2016 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 2016 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 2016 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 2014 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 2013 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...
