Sydney Cricket Ground – Bradman & Noble Stand, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Constructing the roof of the new Bradman and Noble stand was always about safety and buildability working 20m above the ground.
In collaboration with Cox architects and AW Edwards, the last two metres of the entire perimeter, both above and underneath, were designed and constructed as complete 12 meter nose cone sections.
These sections not only incorporated the gutter detail but also the underlying sofit. Lifted as complete units the amount of work required at height was dramatically reduced. This innovation was recognised by the Master Builders Association with AW Edwards picking up the gong for MBA Excellence in Construction Award – Construction Innovation and Technique 2014.
