ARAMAX FreeSpan spans new Netball Central Building

Recently, our team worked with Sahara Roofing to deliver over 15,000m2 of ARAMAX FreeSpan for Netball Central in Sydney's Olympic Park precinct as part of the $27 million development. 

The facilities opening will see netball join a family of 47 other sports currently located at the precinct and represents the largest investment in women’s sport in Australia.  During installation, we captured some impressive aerial perspectives of the roof using a flying drone (check it out below).

To install the expansive ARAMAX FreeSpan sheets onto the roof, we used a Spreader Bar to help evenly distribute the weight of the sheets to safely lever them into the air using a crane. The sheets themselves span an incredible 141 metres and were created onsite using the Fielders Mobile Mill roll former.

The brand new building contains six new state-of-the-art sprung floor courts, plus gymnasium and sports science facilities, and will be the headquarters for Netball NSW moving forward.

Fielders worked with Pro Build, Sahara Roofing, ARUP and Scott Carver Architects to bring the building to life which will play host to the 2015 World Netball Championship.

We’ll be sure to share photos of the completed development on the Fielders Steel Facebookpage.
