26 Jun 2018 Brisbane Auto Mall

iEDM were approached by Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) and ML Design to provide circuit design advice for the concept of an Auto Mall to be built adjacent to Brisbane’s International Airport. iEDM, along with Mark Skaife have been providing circuit design services and advice to BAC since 2015 during the design process of this major development and first of it’s kind in Australia. The test track will be located within the development of an automotive precinct and offers a safe environment for driver training, education programs, car club activities and most significantly for the Brands that will occupy these facilities, access to a circuit direct from the showroom. The location of the AutoMall places automotive brands in an area that prospective purchasers can fly in, test a car on track and fly back the same day. This is a strategy which is anticipated to be successful for high-end manufacturers, whose customers want to test the cars at speed, under brakes and into corners – an experience you cannot get test driving through a city. The facility also allows retailers to continually engage with their customers through driving experiences and training. iEDM is proud to be a part of this innovative and groundbreaking...

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...

iEDM was approached by V8SC to assist with the development of a strategy to take the temporary infrastructure from the Hamilton Street Circuit to create a cost effective upgrade to the Pukekohe Park Raceway. The upgrades were to provide: Safety imrovements; Racing improvements; Rejuvinate the pit and paddock area to make a more functional space; New race control, administration and officials building; and Viewing and accessibility improvements. With a limited budget and a tight timeframe, iEDM needed to take very tight control of the deliverables and the overall project. In order to gain the Government funding approval, iEDM guaranteed the price of the project and worked with all stakeholders to make the project a success. Working with our clients and our specialist sub-consultants, we were able to develop a design which created a fresh aesthetic and exciting racing on a circuit where heritage also needed to be retained. iEDM placed a team in Auckland for the duration of the detailed design and delivery stage. Our team procured all items and acted as construction managers. The most pleasing and successful element of the upgrades was the addition of two new corners on the back straight. High speeds along the existing back straight, combined with a fixed runoff meant that we needed...
