Adelaide Oval Redevelopment – Formwork Design

Adelaide, Australia
Wideform PTY Limited, Bland 2 Brilliant Landscapes
Project Value
$535 Million

The $535 million government funded Adelaide Oval redevelopment included the building of new eastern and southern grandstands from 2012 to 2014 and a $40 million pedestrian bridge across the River Torrens.

Working with various stakeholders we provided design, documentation, and certification for the complete formwork systems used on the grandstands project, including climbing platforms for radial shaped access cores, rail-guided climbing procedures for wall formwork, working platforms and enclosures, panel formwork systems and construction sequencing for the main support beams to the grandstands and slabs.

The stunning 255-meter long riverbank precinct pedestrian bridge facilitates a vital link between the Adelaide CBD and the North Adelaide Parklands, the Adelaide Oval and Memorial Drive.

With the principal contractor McConnell Dowell, landscape paving specialists Bland 2 Brilliant (B2B) Landscapes engaged Glynn Tucker to provide engineering services for technical investigations and reporting relating to the design and selection of stone paving materials used on the bridge.

Our ‘smart’ engineering allowed B2B to use their own stone products, superior to commonly used imports at the time, of thinner thickness and large format that allowed the project to achieve time and cost savings from less material/weight/storage space, and faster supply/placement times.
