Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) Great Southern Stand Redevelopment

Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) Great Southern Stand Redevelopment

Builder: Construction Engineering Australia Pty Ltd

Project Architect: Cox Architecture

Est. Project Value: $75 million

Date of Completion: January 2012

Britex Project Manager: Mr. Warren Bonello

Britex Project Role

For iconic stadiums like the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) that can cater for over 100,000 patrons in a single day; specifiers, contractors and asset managers alike seek to ensure only the most reliable fixtures are installed. For this reason, Britex was selected as the supplier of stainless steel urinals for the recent Great Southern Stand redevelopment and again, the Britex Sanistep Urinal was selected as the model of choice. In all 35 lineal metres of stainless steel urinal were installed in this particular stage of the project. Key factors in selecting the Sanistep urinal were the ability of Britex to custom manufacture and install on site, urinals in 'L' and 'U' shape configurations, WaterMark and WELS certifications, as well as a proven track record in performance on site with the MCG already having installed upwards of 200 lineal metres of the Sanistep in various locations around the stadium.

About the Facility

The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is an Australian sports stadium located in Yarra Park, Melbourne and is home to the Melbourne Cricket Club. It is the tenth largest stadium in the world, the largest in Australia, the largest stadium for playing cricket, and holds the world record for the highest light towers at any sporting venue. Internationally, the MCG is remembered as the centrepiece stadium of both the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. The open-air stadium is also one of the world’s most famous cricket venues, with the well-attended Boxing Day Test match commencing on Boxing Day (26 December) each year. Throughout the winter, it serves as the home of Australian rules football, with at least one game (though usually more) held there each round.
