EBSA is thrilled to have been awarded the D+H Atmosphere Award in the ‘Gold’ Category for the Ken Rosewall Arena project. A huge congratulation to the EBSA team, an outstanding achievement!
The Ken Rosewall Arena (KRA) is an award-winning, multipurpose arena located at The Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre. The arena, which includes seating for 10,500 guests was originally purpose-built for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
The $50 Million upgrade, completed in 2020, transformed the arena into a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose venue suitable for all-weather conditions with the striking new cable-tension canopy roof (of approximately 8,000 m2) replacing the original perimeter-only roof.
Designed with an Australian summer and safety in mind, EBSA was engaged to deliver a system that ensures that both the players and crowds enjoy the comfort of a well-ventilated arena with a natural ventilation solution incorporating 34 x thermally broken louvres and 2 x thermally broken operable access hatch (doors) in the pop-up oculus to provide a natural ventilation and smoke relief solution for the centre.
EBSA is proud to have been involved with this exceptional project; designing and delivering a full turnkey solution with the supply and installation of the BT90 louvre system, a CPSM smoke control panel and digital ZA louvre actuators. The integration of ACB technology provides digital communication between the louvre actuators and the BMS system; a remote access gateway removes the need for a technician to visit the site, allowing real-time monitoring and functional checks of each individual drive to occur via a secure cloud server.
