Melbourne Cricket Ground

The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia’s best known sporting facility. Founded on its current site in 1853, the ‘G’ has undergone many changes over the last 150 years, the most recent of which is the $430 Million Northern Stand redevelopment, which was finished on schedule in time for the hosting of the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

The Auto-Matrix System at the ‘G’ consists of over 560 Controllers and is responsible for the control and management of all of the Mechanical systems including:

  • Over Six Chillers and Boilers
  • Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) & MCG Monday through Friday offices
  • 180+ Corporate Boxes
  • 16 Dining Rooms
  • 10 Bars
  • 157 Cool Rooms & Freezers

The Auto-Matrix System is trusted with the control of the Lighting System and the Monitors around the Grand Stand. Also entrusted is the monitoring and alarming of the Cool Rooms and Freezers that supply the 100,000 guests on match day with their food and drinks.

Interesting Fact: There are currently 55,000 Full Members, 34,000 Restricted Members and over 210,000 people on the waiting list to become members of the MCC (which equates to a 12 – 15 year wait for a Restricted Membership!)
