Sydney’s stunning stadium

Fantech has been a trusted supplier of fans to the HVAC industry for over 40 years

Located on the site of its predecessor at Moore Park, the new Sydney Football Stadium opened in late August 2022 and is now home to the Sydney Roosters, the New South Wales Waratahs and Sydney FC.

In 2017, the NSW Government announced the former stadium – which had been home to rugby league, union and football (soccer) for 30 years – would be replaced by a new, world-class facility. Following demolition works, builder John Holland was awarded the contract by Infrastructure NSW to build the new stadium in 2019 with works commencing on site in early 2020.

Building services specialist A.G. Coombs was engaged to deliver mechanical services on the project following its involvement during the Early Contractor Involvement period. To meet a compressed construction program, A.G. Coombs prefabricated as much HVAC plant as possible off site, including the Level 5 mechanical services main plant.

Fantech supplied a number of fans for the project that met the stringent requirements of the mechanical services specification. These included single-width single-inlet (SWSI) and double-width double-inlet (DWDI) centrifugal fans, PowerLine Ultra Series mixed-flow fans, AP Series axial fans and TD Mixvent Series fans. “Fantech was approached by A.G. Coombs at the very start of the project to assist in providing suitable selections of fans,” says Tamica Louttit, Account Manager at Fantech.

“Working with the A.G. Coombs engineering team, we provided product selections and the required technical data. We are proud to have our products installed in many areas of the stadium including recovery rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, the Members’ Reserve and everywhere in between.”

One of the advantages Fantech was able to offer A.G. Coombs was that over 50% of the fans selected were manufactured in Sydney, resulting in quick lead times to further assist in meeting the construction program.

In some instances where axial fans were originally designed to be installed horizontally, changes on site required them to be installed vertically instead. Fantech was able to reconfigure these fans quickly, making last minute modifications to the fan casings to suit the installation.

“Fantech has been a trusted supplier of fans to the HVAC industry for over 40 years, and A.G. Coombs has had a working relationship with Fantech for all of that time,” says Barry Agnew, Sales and Estimating Manager (NSW/ACT) for A.G. Coombs.

“Their staff are knowledgeable of their products, easily contactable and very responsive.”

Completed in mid-2022, the new 42,500-seat Sydney Football Stadium now offers sports and entertainment fans in Sydney with a world-class venue providing unrivalled views of the field and a 360-degree concourse for easy access both inside and outside the stadium.
