Fantech has been
a trusted supplier
of fans to the HVAC
industry for over 40 years
Located on the site of its predecessor at Moore Park, the new
Sydney Football Stadium opened in late August 2022 and is now
home to the Sydney Roosters, the New South Wales Waratahs
and Sydney FC.
In 2017, the NSW Government announced the former stadium –
which had been home to rugby league, union and football (soccer)
for 30 years – would be replaced by a new, world-class facility.
Following demolition works, builder John Holland was awarded the
contract by Infrastructure NSW to build the new stadium in 2019
with works commencing on site in early 2020.
Building services specialist A.G. Coombs was engaged to deliver
mechanical services on the project following its involvement during
the Early Contractor Involvement period. To meet a compressed
construction program, A.G. Coombs prefabricated as much HVAC
plant as possible off site, including the Level 5 mechanical services
Fantech supplied a number of fans for the project that met the
stringent requirements of the mechanical services specification.
These included single-width single-inlet (SWSI) and double-width
double-inlet (DWDI) centrifugal fans, PowerLine Ultra Series
mixed-flow fans, AP Series axial fans and TD Mixvent Series fans.
“Fantech was approached by A.G. Coombs
at the very start of the project to assist in
providing suitable selections of fans,”
says Tamica Louttit, Account
Manager at Fantech.
“Working with the A.G. Coombs engineering team, we provided
product selections and the required technical data. We are proud
to have our products installed in many areas of the stadium
including recovery rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, the Members’
Reserve and everywhere in between.”
One of the advantages Fantech was able to offer A.G. Coombs
was that over 50% of the fans selected were manufactured in
Sydney, resulting in quick lead times to further assist in meeting
the construction program.
In some instances where axial fans were originally designed to be
installed horizontally, changes on site required them to be installed
vertically instead. Fantech was able to reconfigure these fans
quickly, making last minute modifications to the fan casings to
suit the installation.
“Fantech has been a trusted supplier of fans to the HVAC industry
for over 40 years, and A.G. Coombs has had a working relationship
with Fantech for all of that time,” says Barry Agnew, Sales and
Estimating Manager (NSW/ACT) for A.G. Coombs.
“Their staff are knowledgeable of their products, easily contactable
and very responsive.”
Completed in mid-2022, the new 42,500-seat Sydney Football
Stadium now offers sports and entertainment fans in Sydney
with a world-class venue providing unrivalled views of the field
and a 360-degree concourse for easy access both inside
and outside the stadium.
