Cosgroves have provided fire and electrical engineering design services for this new stadium facility.
The electrical design was part of a joint venture with Byelec and was limited to power layouts, electrical reticulation and control systems. Fire design included alternative fire engineering in terms of internal stadium seating and egress, as well as smoke control for the main sports hall. Cosgroves is assisting Engenium in overseeing the project works.
