Sir John Guise Stadium RedevelopmentPort Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Norman Disney & Young (NDY) was part of the successful Peddlethorp consortium which was selected to redevelop the Sir John Guise Stadium. Other New Zealand members of the consortium were project managers: Xigo, cost consultants: Rider Levett Bucknell and structural engineers Structure Design. The New Zealand consortium members partnered with local PNG consultants consisting of Peddlethorp PNG, M&E Partnership, Cost Consultants and Stocks & Partners.
The Peddlethorp consortium was appointed by the Venues Infrastructure & Equipment Committee (VIEC) for the PNG 2015 Pacific Games and design work occurred during 2012 and 2013 with the building being ready in time with the Pacific Games which started on 4th July 2015. The facility includes:
- Renovation and expansion of the existing grandstand both internally and externally, including player facilities, offices and lounges
- Renovated grandstand also included Media Centre, toilets, change room/lockers, match officials changing rooms, medical and first aid rooms
- Increased and re-shaped venue seating from approx. 5,000 to 15,000 seats
- New certified IAAF outdoor athletic track
- New Stadium lighting to enable television telecasts of infield sports at night
- New toilet facilities to the North, East and South stands
- New Public Address System
- New Electronic Scoreboard
Various sports lighting studies were completed using the original towers. However the original towers were beyond repair and were replaced with new towers providing 500 lux (h) average across the full track and 1500 lux (h) average across the infield.
100% standby generator set was provided for the facility and active voltage conditioners were incorporated into the main switch boards to ensure appropriate power quality to the venue.
Facilities were designed with ease of maintenance in mind.
