Last Friday, members of our Fredon Electrical and Infrastructure divisions attended the annual NECA Excellence Awards for the NSW Chapter. 

We are delighted to announce Fredon won a State Excellence Award and a Commendation, whilst one of our NECA Apprentice’s was also recognised with an award. 

NSW State Winner Industrial Large Project – Central Station Main Works

Fredon received the NSW Industrial Large Project Award for Central Station. Central Station Main Works is a part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project, which is one-half of Australia’s largest public transport project, Sydney Metro.  

Fredon is proud to be part of this project that consisted of the construction of the new Metro station underneath the existing train lines. It also included upgrades to the station, including a new concourse on the North, South and Eastern sides of the station. All works were completed while Central Station, Australia’s largest train station, was still fully functioning.  

Our Infrastructure team have been acknowledged for managing the unique challenges of integrating a new metro build within the existing and historic Central Station infrastructure without major issues, including successfully installing, testing, and commissioning works.  

NSW State Commendation for Commercial Large Projects – Sydney Football Stadium Redevelopment

The Sydney Football Stadium Redevelopment project was recognised with a Commendation in the Commercial Large Project category. Fredon is proud to have been part of this high-profile project that demanded nothing short of excellence. 

Well done to our Electrical NSW team who showed unwavering commitment to innovation and high-quality delivery that has left a lasting impact on spectators and within the industry. Amidst the complexity of the project, the team thrived under pressure, having masterfully designed, and delivered innovative solutions to suit the intricate electrical and communications brief, including a seamlessly integrated high-voltage network. 

A key element of the works involved installing the decorative multicolour changing RGB feature lights and the roof pitch sporting lights. Throughout the stadium, our team delivered over 500km of communication cabling and over 500km of power cabling, as well as the high voltage connection of two new 11KV feeders to the site and five 11KV private Substations within the stadium.
