The new home of Cricket NSW at Wilson Park in Sydney’s Silverwater has been built for the needs of current and future generation cricketers at every level; coaches, umpires, administrators, and volunteers. The new facility is said to provide contemporary high-performance training and playing facilities for all NSW professional teams, offer pathway and development programs, a community facility and office space for almost 150 staff.
Metra Aus were approached by both the builder and joiner for the project to provide a solution for electronic locking technology within the lockers throughout the players and community change rooms, administration areas and for kit bag storage on the ground floor.
There is a total of 347 electronic locks were installed throughout the facility with a mix of our RFID “on door” solution and centralised locking solution.
With all staff and regular players to be issued an RFID access card whilst using the facility, the RFID on door was considered the best solution as it allows a user to move directly to either their assigned locker, or a free locker and unlock at the door. The small number of the centralised lockers are reserved for casual users to the open auditorium.
All of the lockers were custom designed by Cox Architects, and the Metra lock was able to accommodate their unique needs – including the large horizontally hinged, lift up lockers designed specifically for large kit-bag storage.
The change rooms required a lot of individual storage, but only a small allocation of secure, valuable storage.
Lockers to the open plan office area are low height, and readily accessible for staff.
