Case Study: Fraser Coast Sports Complex


Fraser Coast Sports and Recreation Precinct in Hervey Bay, Australia, is the home for many local clubs participating in Football and Netball.

Since it first opened in February 2019, the sporting complex has become a popular site to train on with professional soccer club Brisbane Roar F.C. training their players there.

The complex needed a reliable lighting system in order to cater for its ever growing popularity. Demand for evening training sessions and matches necessitated a sports lighting system, in addition, the adjoining car park also required lighting.
