‘Fields of Play’ civil engineering specialist SportEng expands with Sydney office opening

‘Fields of Play’ civil engineering specialist SportEng expands with Sydney office opening
April 19, 2021

Civil engineering ‘Fields of Play’ specialists SportEng have opened a new Sydney office - their third office in Australia  - with an event at the famous Sydney Cricket Ground.

The Sydney office opening aims to strengthen the SportEng presence in NSW – beyond its existing locations in Melbourne and Brisbane, offering clients-based a greater access to their team, while providing services such as Field of Play and civil engineering design, turf audit and recommendations, project management, and irrigation design.

Speaking at an opening event last week, SportEng Chief Executive, Jarrod Hill stated “NSW has always been an important market for our company having landed our first job in the region back in 2014 at Knox Grammar School.

“Now we have a full-time presence here we are looking forward to continuing to work with local clients to deliver high quality Fields of Play for all level of use.”

One of the new office’s visions is to support sport sustainability by developing more sustainable and environmental-friendly Fields of Play projects, and by assisting relevant organisations - such as the Sports Environment Alliance (an organisation with the purpose of protecting and enhancing the natural environment of Australasia by promoting, sustainable development, regeneration and re-use of resources.)

Cameron Nayar, Design Lead of the SportEng’s NSW team, added “it’s a great opportunity for me to bring the SPORTENG brand into Sydney and take on the role of design lead.

“With sustainability becoming more important, educating the Sydney market on sustainable Field of Play design will help maintain its ranking of Australia's most sustainable city."

With over six years’ experience as a Civil Engineer at SportEng, Nayar was chosen to lead the Sydney venture.

SportEng describe him as having “a keen eye for detail in engineering design and strong design lead skills, Cameron knows how to effectively lead a design team, from assisting clients from the initial conceptual design, through to the end of construction.”

Nayar is joined in the Sydney office by two new engineers: Alice McCosker, Civil Engineer with six year’s experience, and Faris Saman, a graduate Civil Engineer.

The new office is located within the WOTSO Zetland co-working space, at 136 Epsom Road, Zetland NSW.
