Secon were appointed by the District Council of Mount Barker to design and supervise the lighting installation for the Multi-purpose Sports Complex to the existing Anembo Park site consisting of outside tennis courts, two soccer pitches, a softball pitch and private roadway lighting to enable the site to be used in the evenings by the community. Constraints included the existing terrain and the preservation of significant trees on the site. The park was also open to the public throughout the project, introducing many health and safety considerations and logistical issues that had to be considered and monitored throughout the construction period.
The tennis lighting requirement comprised six courts (to be illuminated in accordance with Tennis S.A. and Tennis Australia requirements for Pro Tour Events). The lighting of the soccer pitches was required to facilitate training and amateur competition in line with Australian Standards and the softball pitch required lighting levels and uniformity to accommodate ‘international and national’ competitions.
Secon provided an ETSA supply upgrade to facilitate the increased demand (and potential future expansions of the sports lighting), co-ordinating all infrastructure and cabling routes with the Council and Arborist.
