KICKING DESIGN GOALS AT ALLIANZ STADIUMby HUB Street Equipment
Upgrades to the forecourt of Allianz Stadium gave the tired space a fresh new look.
Allianz Stadium (previously known as the Sydney Football Stadium) is one of Australia’s foremost sporting facilities playing host to Rugby League, Union, Football as well as concerts. Following recent capital works which increased the stadium's capacity from 42,000 to 45,500, upgrades were also made to the forecourt area to create a more significant entry experience for visitors to the stadium. Central to this upgrade are the multi-functional banner poles that create a vibrant and dynamic concourse at the main gates to Allianz Stadium. These multi-functional poles, as well as the furniture elements, were designed and supplied by HUB Street Equipment.
Working with Webb Australia and Cox Architecture, HUB’s design team collaborated to integrate unique accessories such as spotlights, signage, double banners and triple light-outreaches, on its highly adaptable Multi-Functional Pole systems. Following this successful execution, HUB was then contracted to supply all new furniture required including seating and bollards. Working towards a tight deadline, with the forecourt needing to be completed before re-opening with major events in December, HUB was met with yet another challenge. Complications on-site meant poles had to be delivered in separate deliveries, but, for a company who thrives on a challenge, HUB took it all in their stride.
Following the complex delivery of the poles, S205 bollards and S202 benches were installed in the stadium forecourt. With a focus on functional, low maintenance solutions, the S205 bollards were modified to be collapsible to be more adaptable to the constantly changing conditions of their environment. Utilising minimal materials and refined contemporary forms, the S2 suite aimed to provide the stadium with beautiful, functional and robust furniture that will maintain the highest level of usability and stand the test of time.
From the elegant grain of the timber slats in the seats, to the banners flying high from the MFP Systems, HUB has contributed to a project that truly speaks for itself. After this highly successful transformation, HUB also looks forward to the opportunity of extending its services to the next stages of the project and beyond.
