|Project||Margaret Court Arena|
|Size||3,200 sq m|
|Location||Melbourne Park Sports Precinct|
Located in the heart of the Melbourne Park Precinct alongside another Ortech Landmark Project (Hisense Arena), 7,500-seat Margaret Court Arena plays host to both sports and music events alike, most notably during the Australian Open.
Ortech Industries worked closely with the design team on a roof system that accompanied the unique pleated design whilst maintaining an acoustic envelope to contain noise within the arena and keep rain noise out.
During construction, a safe and fast assembly of the Ortech system was completed in modules on the ground. It was then craned into position and fixed onto the structure, providing a trafficable ceiling that allowed for other trades to follow through below.
Margaret Court Arena is the pinnacle in a long list of successful Australian sporting venues completed with an Ortech system, joining the likes of:
– Perth Arena,
– Queensland State Tennis Centre
– Titanium Security Arena
