DXC Arena

DXC Arena, formerly known as the Marrara Cricket Ground, is the home of NT Cricket and is situated in the Marrara sports precinct in Darwin. The lighting situation at the facility was non-existent before AAA-LUX installed its state-of-the-art LED sports lighting. When looking for a new lighting installation, the primary requirement was to enable local and professional cricket players and teams to play at night. This project was released as a tender, and the requirements were detailed in scope.

Meeting Tender Requirements

One of the major challenges that AAA-LUX faced was ensuring compliance with CASA Standards due to the proximity to the Darwin International Airport. They also had to meet strict Obtrusive spill light control for the neighbors while maintaining a high level of lighting and uniformity on the field.

The brief dictated the pole quantities, heights, locations, and lighting levels needed to be achieved. AAA-LUX Australia had to ensure that the best possible design was put forward that could meet all these requirements within the tender for the client. They proposed a solution that involved installing 128 x WS LED Sports Lights fixtures with various optics on six 35-meter poles in total.

Establishes DXC Arena as a a premium facility for professional cricket teams

The results of the new installation have surpassed all expectations, with the lighting outcome on the field being exceptional. It is now a pleasure to be able to play at night out of the Darwin heat. The lighting has provided flexible options for local cricket communities and established the ground as a premium facility to accommodate winter training and a superior playing hub for all professional cricket teams.

In conclusion, the experience with AAA-LUX has been excellent, and the results of the lighting design outcomes, local experience, build, and overall service prove that AAA-LUX can match and surpass all leading suppliers within the industry. The project partners included GLS Global Lighting Solutions as the local supplier of the AAA-LUX Luminaires, local electrical contractor Dice (Aust) Pty Ltd as the installer, and GM Poles as the pole supplier.
