P.A. People Deliver BSC Brewhouse for Bankstown Sports Club

The Basement Brewhouse, inside Bankstown Sports Club is now open. Featuring its own microbrewery serving a pilsner, sparkling ale, pale ale and American-style pale ale, 30 taps with a variety of craft beer and cider, and a tap wine selection for those looking for something a little sweeter, as well as a burger menu and a gourmet delicatessen.

“The brief given to The P.A. People in the lead-up to the Brewhouse project, was to provide a high quality distributed sound system, high definition vision, and a simple, yet intuitive control system. They have exceeded expectations in their delivery, with some very positive feedback from early on,” said Jason Klippel, Audio Visual Team Leader.

The Brewhouse was an engaging challenge from the outset, working within the confines of a fully operational club, ever conscious of noise and an existing structure.

“We were in constant contact with the club’s AV Team to give final approvals on all site locations as we would not get a second go at getting it right,” observed Ross Ford, Project Manager for The P.A. People.

The TVs around the outer walls of the venue were an initial challenge. Curtains ran behind each one and the desired outcome was not to see fix-points. The P.A. People designed a single-point swivel bracket that the curtain could be fitted around – with the TV sitting just in front – hiding all fixings and cables.

TV screens inside the barrels were an even bigger issue. The original design required single-sided units, mounted to a round pole which the joiner was supplying. During the process, the club decided to enhance these specs, which required mounting them on both sides of a square pole fixture. The team then came up with the mounting idea complete with tinted acrylic trim to hide all cables and connections.

“We were on site most days to ensure that we were not ‘built-out’ of any areas. Thankfully we were mostly in front of where we needed to be and completed the install task days before the official opening,” said Ross.

“In the process of this install, we upgraded the entire site-wide MATV system from analogue to digital. The Brewhouse was running Digital for Melbourne Cup Day.” added Brett Steele, Manager – Installed Systems.
