A Unique Facility with Unique Needs – Feisst Electrical and the Avantidrome
The Avantidrome is one of only two indoor velodromes in New Zealand – and the only one in the North Island. Completed in February 2014, the facility features a 250 metre indoor cycling track with a range of complementary facilities: a kids’ bike-skills park, café, and fitness centre.
This range of offerings, makes for a unique facility with unique and varied requirements – and that includes electrical work. With hundreds of kilometres of wiring, specialised lighting rigs, electronic timers, security and IT electronics, Avantidrome’s electrical and cabling design and installation was very complex. Lighting for the huge indoor track includes 356 light fittings, many set into a ceiling 15 metres above the ground. There are also electronic timers for riders to monitor their pace, a security system with keycard entry for staff, and IT systems for the Avantidrome itself, the bike shop, and the café outside.
With years of experience and expertise in designing best-fit solutions for unique projects, Feisst was the obvious choice. They brought their expertise to the project right from the beginning. It meant they were able to design an electrical solution that would suit the Avantidrome, and then work with construction teams to install electrical components and wiring.
