Newcastle Hockey Centre

Newcastle International Hockey Centre is one of Australia’s most up to date playing fields with three water-based artificial turf surfaces and a training field.


We approached the centre in 2019. One of the team drove past frequently and noticed that a number of their lights didn’t work. The centre was then awarded a grant to undertake some upgrade works, including the installation of new poles and lights for each of the turfs. We were selected as part of this process.

The project

Being an international centre, they wanted to reach AS1680 international competition hockey standards. This meant the installation of 12 new 21 metre poles with 12 lights per pole. The project took a total of two months over the winter period with no significant delays due to weather.


The light output has improved a massive 100% from previous levels, with an average lux across the three turfs of 570 lux. Additionally, due to the lower wattage lights used, the centre will save an amazing $154,742 from their electricty bill. The centre was so happy with the results, we are now the exclusive lighting partner
