South Australia Celebrates its Architecture

Friday 3rd July 2015 marked the annual celebration of the best of SA’s architecture at the South Australian Architecture Awards, held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

On behalf of the entire team at Fielders, we would like to congratulate all of the winners and nominees at this year’s event. It was fantastic to be there and celebrate the outstanding work produced by South Australian architects.

As a major partner of the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) SA Chapter, we were delighted to sponsor this year’s Educational Architecture award category.

A big hats off to John Wardle Architects and Phillips/Pilkington Architects who won this category for the Jeffrey Smart Building at the University of South Australia; a well-deserved recognition for a great piece of design. Congratulations to the commendations in this category, including JPE Design Studio for the Adelaide High School Learning Centre and Flightpath Architects for the Cornerstone College project which featured ARAMAX roofing.

Some other notable winners on the night included the Adelaide Oval Redevelopment which took out two categories in the City of Adelaide Prize, plus the Award for Public Architecture. A special congratulations goes to Cox Architecture, Walter Brooke and Hames Sharely for their outstanding success in this development - one that has well and truly put Adelaide on the map in terms of international sports and recreation.

As the supplier of KingFlor steel formwork to the redevelopment during the construction phase, it was great to see the finished product officially recognised and we’re proud to have collaborated with the architects and contractors on this now landmark South Australian stadium.

While we were there to witness all the highlights of the night, we were also present on our social media platforms, providing real-time updates on the night’s events and award wins. If you want to catch up on some of the highlights from the 2015 awards, head over to our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Once again, congratulations to all nominees and to this year’s winners that will be heading to the national finals in November. We look forward to next year’s awards, continuing our partnership with AIA and supporting the work of South Australian architects.

Fielders join forces with Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy

We're proud join forces with the Darren Lehmann Cricket Academy as major sponsor, as we aim to give many more non-elite cricketers an elite cricketing experience.

Coinciding with the re-signing of Boof as our official Brand Ambassador, our sponsorship with the academy will assist in fostering the development of our young cricketers to provide them with all the tools they need to make the most of the sport.

Darren recently spoke of our partnership and how he's proud to have us involved with this important initiative.

"As a Fielders Ambassador, over the years I have done television, radio and newspaper advertising with Fielders and I couldn't be happier that they have invested themselves in helping us to help cricketers of any ability be the best they can be via our internationally recognised cricket programs," said Boof.

Our support of the DLCA will assist in growing its operations and opening a Darren Lehmann Aboriginal Cricket Academy in 2016, while expanding its reach into India.

Since opening in 2005, the Adelaide-based DLCA has hosted players from all over the world, with 18 international, 14 international "A" players and almost 100 First Class players progressing through the system.

The academy run a number of programs that are extension of the International High Performance Program, including tours for 16 to 18 year old cricketers from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore, who have toured Sri Lanka, India, and the UK to participate in the Gap Year and Winter programs plus Regional Camps.

Based on Australian Cricket Team Coach, Darren Lehmann's approach to the game, the DLCA has proven to be very successful at developing cricketers of all ages and abilities - we couldn't be prouder to be involved with such a worthwhile program.
