Project Description

Mechanical Services and BMCS design Sydney Superdome

The Acer Arena (now Sydney Superdome) was constructed for the Sydney 2000 Olympics to house indoor events including gymnastics, badminton, table tennis and many more Olympic events.

Jorgen undertook the mechanical services (including smoke spill) and Building Monitoring and Control System (BMCS) design for this project.

The installation incorporates 10,000 kw of cooling and 9,500 kw of heating, with chilled and heating water being circulated to 20 air handing units, 83 fans provide ventilation and smoke control.

Displacement ventilation is used with under-seat supply air for spectators, with the main arena conditioned with iconic jet diffusers. The stadium air conditioning is designed to allow the stadium to be operated in segments (designed for large or small concerts).

The main hall smoke spill systems also operates for fume removal when indoor pyrotechnics or ‘dirty demon shows’ are operated.

The main hall was also provided with in slab cooling system for Ice Rink use.
