DUNEDIN STADIUM CONFIRMED AS WORLD CLASS
The World Stadium Awards were handed down in Doha, Qatar on Monday, 04 June 2012.
Nominations were received from over 100 stadia in five categories. Forsyth Barr Stadium (FBS) was short listed as a finalist for the categories of Engineering Excellence in Stadium Development and The Worlds Most Iconic and Culturally Significant Stadium.
Competing against projects with significantly larger budgets, where no distinction was made between size or cost, FBS was one of the three shortlisted finalists in both categories.
Nominations were submitted by Arrow International Ltd and Aurecon in conjunction with Sports Surface Design and Management (SSDM), who were the project delivery managers, services engineers and Turf Consultants, respectively on the project. The Judging panel expressed very favourable comments on our nominations, and recognised that to be a finalist in this International forum is an exceptional achievement for all those involved in the project. It is a tremendous endorsement of New Zealand’s ability of innovated thinking.
Dunedin was represented by Project Delivery Team (PDT) Chairman, Stewart Barnett and Deputy Chairman Mike Coburn as well as representatives from Arrow, Aurecon and Rawlinsons.
The PDT Chairman stated that “being a finalist against other stadia with unlimited project resources was a major challenge in the judging of our stadium with its tightly controlled budget. Considering Dunedin’s location and project restraints we were punching well above our weight. It is an outstanding achievement of which all of New Zealand should be proud.”
