The Adelaide Oval redevelopment has won the Institution of Structural Engineers award for excellence in structural design.
The win has shown that Adelaide Oval is a world leader in stadium design and was commended for the response to the unique challenges faced throughout the project. Previous winners of this award includes the London Olympic Stadium and the London Velodrome.
Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan has congratulated everyone involved with this redevelopment and claims that it has generated about $138 million of revenue in Adelaide’s CBD and had created 465 jobs.
Adelaide Oval won the award for excellence over other globally-recognised public infrastructure developments such as the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in the UAE, Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and the Wilhelma Zoo in Stuttgart. The international judging panel commended the engineering designers’ response to the unique challenges of the project, and the integration of new and existing elements.
