20 Dec 2017 Newcastle 500 Supercars

The inaugural Newcastle 500 was held in November 2017 and was hailed a major success for the Sport and the City. iEDM were engaged by Supercars Australia to provide all site identification, feasibility, design, engineering and project management services for the project, which included substantial civil / enabling works as well as the overlay and event planning. The Newcastle Event site was located on the edge of the CBD, encompassed many businesses, around 3,000 residents, 3 public beaches, parklands and various other public areas. Logistically, these projects require a very high level of planning, stakeholder communication and design. Initially, the civil works were only to include minimal works required to make the streets safe for Supercars racing. However, it was soon realised that the project could achieve a tremendous legacy to the area of Newcastle East if we could conduct significant streetscape and services upgrades into the area at the same time. The services in Newcastle East were dilapidated and some water mains close to 100 years old. The project was able to deliver upgrades to water, stormwater, electrical infrastructure, as well as new footpaths, roads, smart infrastructure and landscaping. iEDM had only 12 months to design, plan and deliver around $25M of major CBD...

02 Dec 2015 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival

In 2010, the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival underwent a massive change to the course for the Sydney Marathon which was brought about by sustained growth of the event and its need to create a better traffic flow through the city. The Marathon Event is held through the streets of inner Sydney and as such, closes a number of important routes through Australia's busiest centre. Pont3, the promoter of the event, in consultation with the RTA and the NSW Police designed a new course which enabled a number of key streets to remain open during the Marathon. However, in order to achieve the ultimate design, a bridge would need to be placed over Park St in the City Centre, from one side of Hyde Park to another. iEDM were approached for assistance in design and delivery of the bridge for the Marathon.Items of special consideration were: Dynamic loading and engineering capability of taking a specified number of runners through the span; Night time construction and traffic / pedestrian management and occupational health and safety through such a busy street; Sight lines for traffic lights and protection of bridge footings whilst the bridge was in place and the road operating with normal traffic; Stairs and block walls which were...

02 Dec 2015 Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercars

The Vodafone is the new name for the freshly re-branded and formatted event which many would know as the Gold Coast Indy. Members of the iEDM team have been involved with the engineering design and project management of the Gold Coast Indy since the event’s inception in 1990. In 2010, the famous 4.5km beachside street circuit was reduced in length to allow for a faster construction period and better racing for the V8 Supercars, who are now the main category of race cars and the event promoter. The event also incorporates a concert at the Broadwater Parklands. The reduction of the circuit resulted in a 30% reduction in construction time. Further, the reduction, with a detailed review on construction methodology, has resulted in approximately $1M of annual savings to the event. The Gold Coast 600 is one of the most logistically challenging events to construct on the Australian calendar. The site cannot close down, for any period of the construction, with approximately 4,000 residents inside the precinct and located on one of three major arterial roads in a city of over 500,000 people. Strong community communication and a key understanding of the uses of the site is of major importance when planning this project. The...
