Stadium - Sydney Olympic Stadium, Sydney, Australia
Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors were installed in Sydney’s Olympic Stadium. The stadium was completed in 1998 and was the central venue for track and field events at the 2000 Games.
Sports stadia of this size are subject to considerable loads. The structural movement joints must be designed to allow the necessary movement and load transfer to take place, ensuring the structure functions correctly.
Ancon DSDs offer significant advantages over single dowels. They are more effective at transferring load across a joint, while allowing expansion and contraction of the structure to take place. They also simplify the onsite construction of the structural movement joint.
Ancon DSD100s have been installed at the beam to slab connections on this all-seat stadium.
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.

From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
