Moreton Bay Regional Council’s State Equestrian Centre in Caboolture is a state-of-the-art Equestrian Facility consisting of an all-weather main arena stadium, training and warm-up facilities, administration and hospitality areas together with stabling facilities, short-term camping and accommodation and associated amenities.

Medland Metropolis were engaged to provide mechanical and electrical services for this new facility.  Lighting selections and design were mindful of energy efficiency and operational costs in order to ensure that not only initial build costs, but also whole-of-life costs, were kept to a minimum without compromising on the final quality of the facility.  In addition to this, lighting for the arena was designed in such a way as to allow for simple upgrades to achieve lighting levels required for future broadcasting of events.

Medland Metropolis also designed a fully automated control system which allows for the simple and flexible selection of desired lighting ‘scenes’ to cater for a wide variety of arena uses.

The solutions employed by Medland Metropolis blend functionality and aesthetics in a manner which not only exceeds functional requirements but also blends seamlessly with the architecture and surrounds.
