27 Oct 2020 Sandown Turn 6 Redesign 

In 2018, iEDM were engaged by the Melbourne Racing Club, to investigate options available to improve the safety of the notorious turn 6 at Sandown Raceway. Over the years, Turn 6 has ended the races of many amateur and professional drivers with its high speed, downhill nature catching driver’s out and sending them into the wall.    As in all racing, accidents are part of the sport and experience. So, the issue wasn’t that drivers were coming off the circuit, the issue that concerned Motorsport Australia and the FIA was the severity of the accidents.    After a site visit and familiarisation of the circuit, our first step was to assess those accidents. We obtained actual in-car logged data from Supercars Australia and overlaid racing trajectory onto the circuit drawings. This allowed us to assess, with the circuit simulation, the accidents which occurred and subsequent vehicle and driver impacts which were experienced.   Using the simulation, we plotted escape lines on the circuit to determine the required runoff based on current FIA sporting guidelines. We found that based on 2D analysis, simulated driving lines and runoff trajectories, the spatial allowances of the runoff at Turn 6 generally complied with the FIA Circuit Guidelines.   The escape lines then considered the different surface treatments available and checked against various incident scenarios.    The high mid corner...

31 Jul 2020 Adelaide International Tennis

The Adelaide International was held in January 2020, a 7-day tournament which replaced the existing 3 day, World Tennis Challenge. iEDM were engaged by Tennis Australia to design and project manage the very first event under the new roof at War Memorial Drive, the first time this event was held in Adelaide. The event site is on a tight footprint located on the edge of the CBD, on a busy thoroughfare. The tournament, unlike previous in the past, utilised not one, but three neighbouring venues, all with staggered hand over dates due to current and coinciding events during both bump in and during the event. This required high level planning and strong stakeholder communication. iEDM were responsible for integrating the following services: Workshop and liaise with all internal departments of TA to develop an overlay Design and create an event plan Site and construction management Stakeholder management Infrastructure budget development and management Risk and Safety management Delivery planning and scheduling With the construction of the new roof over War Memorial Drive courts finishing just days before the commencement of our bump in, there were various challenges faced during this time. Designing a centre court and other precincts in never used before spaces without having...
