" SPORTENG understands the technical requirements for the design of a tennis court. They ensure the design is fit for purpose, that engineering principles are applied to pavement designs and they consider constructability. Tennis Australia has used SPORTENG on a number of tennis projects to its complete satisfaction. "

Paul Cammack - National Infrastructure Manager

Tennis Australia

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with SPORTENG on a range of AFL related projects across Australia. I have always found them to be highly professional and equally knowledgeable in their advice and design outputs and continue to have a strong working relationship with them. I would have no hesitation in nominating SPORTENG as Field of Play consultants on future projects, large or small.”

Simon Gorr - National Venues Manager

AFL

“Our Exercise and Sports Sciences courses are world class and the facilities were required to match that standard. SPORTENG took on the challenge to design the facility and manage the construction. The team at SPORTENG always had energy, were enthusiastic and demonstrated great technical skills. They certainly helped Deakin University establish a facility that we can be very proud of.”

Andrew Crowley - Manager Sport and Recreation

Deakin University

“Jarrod and his team provided a high level of consultation on the Optus Stadium’s field of play during the design development stage. This level of quality design continued into the documentation stage which culminated in the delivery of the final product - a world-class field of play.”

Ronnie Hurst - Project Director, Dept. of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries

One of the main challenges for Governing Bodies is applying international standards to Australian-specific conditions. SPORTENG has worked with Governing Bodies to capture the standards, methods, and techniques required to deliver their sports across the spectrum of community use to elite use and produce technical documentation that conveys that to various stakeholders and user groups

We understand the importance of value-driven design, delivering an asset that is fit for purpose, can withstand the rigours of use by school children of all ages, and provides the flexibility of use for formal and informal play. School projects contain unique sensitivities and require the thorough design to get through the ID process for new developments and when upgrading existing facilities on school sites that are in use.

Providing specialist Field of Play services to Local and State Governments has been the cornerstone of our business since the day we started trading. We encourage a design and specification approach to simplify tendering and ensure all site constraints are understood prior to commencing works.

Depending on where you are located in Australia, you might be responsible for managing and upgrading your own Field of Play, most likely in a lease arrangement with Council. We work with sports clubs to help ensure they maximise the return on dollars spent by ensuring appropriate design works are implemented and our whole-of-life assessment of needs for your Fields of Play can assist with grant applications and maintenance.
