The Australian professional soccer club Sydney FC’s brand new home at Moore Park has reached another key juncture with the start of the installation of one of the key pieces architecture in the stadium’s roof.

The ‘Sydney FC’ stated that the first pieces of the stadium’s diagrid have been lifted into place on the Northern and Southern stands.

The Sydney Football Club is an Australian professional soccer club based in Sydney, New South Wales (Australia). It competes in the country’s premier men’s competition, A-League Men, under licence from the Australian Professional Leagues.

The 20,000-capacity Leichhardt Oval is a rugby league and soccer stadium in Lilyfield, New South Wales, Australia. It is currently the home ground of Sydney FC.

The A-Leagues represent the pinnacle of professional football in Australia, comprising men’s, women’s, youth, and e-sports competitions.

The 45,000-capacity Sydney Football Stadium (2022) is an under-construction football stadium in Moore Park, Sydney, Australia. It is scheduled to open in mid-2022 as a replacement for the Sydney Football Stadium which has since closed down. The Australian professional rugby union team New South Wales Waratahs, Sydney FC and the Australian professional rugby league football club Sydney Roosters will be the ground’s major tenants.

The ‘Sydney FC’ further stated that the diagrid is part of the roof and is a framework of intersecting steel that removes the need for vertical columns.

Weighing up to 22 tonnes each, there are 32 different diagrid sections that need to be lifted into place. The roof fabric is then placed on top.

The diagrid forms the overall shape of the roof, which will be a major design aspect of the stadium once completed.

In addition, all the steel rakers and concrete seating plats have now been installed, as well as all four support structures known as ‘derricks’, and the North and South trusses.

Other activities on site include the fit-out of internal spaces, including blockwork, plastering and painting, plus installing the stadium façade panelling and roof fabric.

Over the next six months, construction activities will include the progressive removal of tower cranes, public domain and landscaping works and installing seats.

Work is continuing on the site in accordance with a COVID Safety Plan that outlines all measures being implemented on the project to address the current New South Wales public health orders.

They include regular rapid antigen testing of workers, deployment of COVID safety marshals, QR code check-in, maintaining social distancing, and increased cleaning and hygiene measures.
