When Sydney won the bid to host the 2000 Olympic Games, it was imperative that all sites would be the best sites in the world, utilising the most sophisticated technology available. The Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) was built as a venue to hold the rowing and canoeing events for the 2000 Olympics as well as the annual national titles and other high level events such as the “Head of the River”.
Due to the success of Holman Engineering’s Athletics, Diving, Water Polo and Synchronised Swimming systems that were developed for Sydney’s other Olympic sites, Holman Engineering was invited to tender for the supply of the timing, display and event management systems for the SIRC. Holman Engineering’s bid provided a complete integrated solution to all timing, display and event management needs. The bid proposed utilising mostly products and software that were specifically developed for this project by Holman Engineering.
