The South Australian Government appoint iEDM to deliver the VALO Adelaide 500 for the next 5 years.

iEDM are excited to announce a new partnership with the South Australian Government to deliver the overlay infrastructure for the VALO Adelaide 500 for the next five years. Under the agreement, iEDM will provide engineering, overlay design, project management, procurement and construction management services.

The VALO Adelaide 500 is annually one of the largest temporary infrastructure builds in Australia. Located in the Victoria Parklands in the capital city of Adelaide, the temporary build consists of:

  • 15 x corporate/hospitality facilities (12,500m2 in total)
  • 30 x superscreens (700 sqm in total)
  • 75 x portable buildings (1,800 sqm in total)
  • 105 toilet blocks + 120 single units 
  • 17,000 seats in 10 locations including over 2,000 seats on public roads
  • Pit Pavilion – Triple Story with over 10,000 sqm of floor space
  • Track Barriers & Debris Fence panels –approximately 2,000 of each
  • 7 x overpass pedestrian bridges
  • Fencing – over 15km
  • Over 10,000 sqm of temporary structure

Following a covid-induced hiatus, the event is reinventing itself and will be delivered by South Australian Motor Sport (SAMS), a Government entity.

Director of Major Projects, Tom Prest said:

“Our SA team are really excited to be supporting the Government to deliver this event in 2022 and beyond. We have really enjoyed the relationship we have built with the SAMS team in the short time we have been working on the project and look forward to the next few months, getting on the ground and seeing this event come back in a big way for Adelaide – its great for the City and for the industry in South Australia.”

Adding the VALO Adelaide 500 back into our annual calendar of major events means our team is now delivering around $80M of overlay infrastructure each year.

Further to the event overlay infrastructure, iEDM are also providing design and project management for a series of capital upgrades to the venue including major asset renewal, resurfacing of the entire circuit, paddock upgrades, pathway and civil upgrades to the parklands.
