New Perth Stadium
The Westadium consortium has been appointed by the Government of Western Australia to design, build, partially finance and maintain the new 60,000 seat Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct. The new Perth Stadium will be a world-class multi-purpose venue, using an innovative 'fans first' design.

Marshall Day has been successfully appointed as the consortium's acoustic, sound system and AV/broadcast cabling consultant. The team will see the project through to its completion, which is scheduled for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
The new Perth Stadium will feature roof coverage of more than 85 per cent of seats, a bronze facade that reflects WA's unique geology, LED lights that can display home sports team colours, and a wide range of 'fan first' facilities, including two of the largest video screens in the country and 4G Wi-Fi coverage for spectators.
Marshall Day Acoustics is working collaboratively with Westadium to provide advice on bowl acoustics, environmental noise, room acoustics and mechanical and services noise.
Marshall Day Entertech is providing design services for the broadcast cabling infrastructure services, AV systems design review and the main sound system. The sound system design incorporated the main bowl, public concourses and external public circulation spaces (including entry gates). Numerous individual coverage zones were provided throughout the building to enable the Stadium control room to address one or many zones. Digital audio was distributed via a converged site-wide ICT network (with dual redundancy). All sound systems were designed as integrated SSISEP (EWIS) systems, negating the need for a separate EWIS system.
