Reference Letter for Nuvo Group – Exterior Theming at the MCG

The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is progressively delivering a range of technology infrastructure during 2015 as part of a $45 million investment at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

One of the deliverables completed under this program of works is a state-of-the-art exterior LED lighting system that enhances the visual appearance of the MCG and allows teams/clubs to personalise and theme the stadium for their fans.

Nuvo Group was selected from a list of lighting/electrical contractors to deliver the stadium-wide LED solution under a Design & Construct contract with Cockram Construction Limited.

Nuvo Group, in conjunction with Cockram Construction Limited, took full design and construct responsibility in a complex technical theming LED solution. This included a global assessment of lighting solutions within stadiums.

The project included software development, data roll out, switchboard installation and LED light fitting installation on the exterior of the MCG.

This work package was delivered over a 6 months duration, in a live environment, while the MCG was fully operational, which at times was challenging.

Nuvo Group’s on-site team of developers, engineers and electricians was pro-active and worked very well with the rest of the project team.

The exterior themed lighting package was completed on budget and ahead of schedule, which enabled the MCC to utilise the exterior LED lighting for the ICC Cricket World Cup Final on 29 March 2015.

We thank Nuvo Group for their excellent service delivery, which ensured a very successful outcome for the Club.
