We've noticed participation in sporting clubs grow locally, and at Chelsworth Park specifically Old Ivanhoe Soccer Club (OISC) have experienced 200% growth. This growth includes a number of newly created girls' teams.

With growing participation, we want to make sure clubs can make the most out of their home grounds and training facilities now, and into the future.

Project summary

Construction and installation of lighting the main soccer pitch at Chelsworth Park, Pitch 1.

  • 4 new galvanised steel lighting poles, 25 metres high
  • At the top of each lighting pole, 3 sets of LED lights, with a light level intensity of 100LUX 

Environmental considerations

We engaged Xylem TreeCare Pty Ltd to complete an ecological assessment of Chelsworth Park and the potential impact of lighting on habitat and fauna.

It concluded minimal risks and recommendations have been considered in this design.
