Landmark development delivered
Sydney’s magnificent new state-of-the-art sporting venue, commercially known as the Allianz Stadium, is rebuilt and ready for action. Concluding two years of hard work through staggeringly difficult and unprecedented conditions, the new Sydney Football Stadium (SFS) was successfully delivered by John Holland, in partnership with the New South Wales government, in August 2022.
Key to assisting this landmark development deliver on time and under budget was CSR’s internal lining solutions, with a range of functional and suitable products specified across multiple applications.
Maintaining the balance between functionality and design was integral to the selection of Gyprock 8mm Rigitone on the ceilings of the corporate areas, VIP entrance and Eastern side main concourse. The Rigitone range features acoustically outstanding perforated plasterboard and succeeds in cushioning sound impact while delivering a dynamic aesthetic. With the intention of creating visual interest in these key areas of the stadium it was selected primarily for its perforated pattern.
Further products specified from the CSR range include; Impactchek, a high-strength 13 mm thick plasterboard with a reinforced core that was used in high impact areas such as hallways and the ‘Rev Up’ Room; Fyrchek, which was selected for the media room where a higher level of fire resistance was required; Aquachek being resistant to water and humidity was selected for the ice bath, showers and all wet areas; and the high performance, sound absorptive Martini dECO Quiet Board by CSR Martini was used in areas that didn’t require the perforated visuals of Gyprock’s Rigitone.
