Project Design Brief
The introduction of new lighting, communications, power and CCTV to the venue required the installation of new cable routes. Cable pits, positioned along these routes, were installed in a number of paths leading to the outdoor stage. Exposure to frequent vehicular traffic from service trucks and forklifts, required these enclosures to be trafficable as severe loads through small contact wheel areas can exert high stresses. Additionally, designers required all access covers to be secure to prevent unauthorised access.
