Project Overview

Tennis Australia were looking for an adaptable lighting solution to light up walk ways and back of house catering areas. They wanted to move away from intrusive high powered floodlights that required substations and ground cables and look at a more sustainable, less invasive lighting solution.

Throughout Grand Slam Oval there are many walk ways connecting the vast array of food and beverage offerings available. Running over a 2 week period, and operating well into each evening, all walk ways and back of house areas needed to be well illuminated for both the thousands of tennis lovers and the back of house catering areas.
