For the love of the game
Moffat has been selected to support fine-dining and convenience food outlets of the new Optus Stadium in Perth.
For a stadium that hosts more than 60,000 fans at sporting events and up to 70,000 music lovers when the seating is reconfigured for concerts, catering facilities were high on the list of priorities in the design brief.
The venue houses more than 50 food and beverage outlets offering meals and refreshment for every taste, be it fine dining or grab-and-go options.
“This is an outstanding project,” says Michael Lillico, general manager, sales and marketing at Moffat, which supplied all of the essentials for the stadium kitchens, including ovens, holding cabinets, trolley washers and specialized warewashing equipment.
"With warewashing, factors such as energy efficiency are critical, but the reality is that in a stadium the seating must take precedence, so space is always at a premium. That is why the use of modular elements is also critical. The key factors we had to combine were performance and footprint. We’re very mindful of those factors, which define many parameters, including the placement of equipment and location of the controls" adds Lillico.
Moffat worked closely with Mike Driscoll & Associates (MDA) and Caterlink, the contractor charged with the complete construction fitout of each part of the project and responsible for the time line of coordinating the equipment fitout.
