SA Athletics Pole Vault

Client: SA Athletics – Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing  |  Location: SA Athletics Stadium, Mile End SA  |  Sector: State Government

SCA was engaged by the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing to design and construct an elite level outdoor multi-functional Calisthenics, High Jump and Pole vaulting facility designed to be utilized by elite athletes in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and Olympics. The equipment was customized with flexibility and durability in mind, inclusive of a six metre A Frame tower. The surfacing component we were commissioned to install was required to exceed a three metre free height of fall. A finished surface reflecting an athletic element was desired, resulting in a pole vaulting figure being featured in the final approved surfacing design. All design was installed free hand using Playkote Gezolan EPDM.
