2015 Master Builders Excellence in Construction Awards
Margaret Court Arena was awarded the Master Builder of the Year Award and the Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings over $80M Award at the 2015 Master Builders Excellence in Construction Awards.
“The delivery of Margaret Court Arena delivered intricate challenges, both in terms of construction and programming. A key innovation of this project involved taking a proprietary, cost effective, structural ceiling system used primarily in the preparation and erection of flat portal frame roofs and applying it to a saw tooth roof with a 29 degree pitch. A pre-fabricated approach enabled a completely safe working deck for the roof to be assembled on the ground and lifted into place as part of the overall structural steel module in large prefabricated sections. The new facilities will help ensure Melbourne maintains its mantle as Australia’s sporting and entertainment capital for years to come”
