It's the behind-the-scenes work that determines the success of any venue. The world-class facilities at the MCG reflect the skills of many local companies

Both the design and the materials used in the MCG bars help create a sense of something out of the ordinary. But the curved shapes posed a few challenges for the fit-out specialist.

Bill Alexander of Scott Development says the Bull Ring Bar is a good example. The curved zinc panels on the bar front needed to appear as seamless as possible to reinforce the sleek, contemporary look of the interior.

"It was a difficult fabrication, but one that came together well," he says. "The bar includes recessed neon lighting, which provides uplighting that further emphasises the contours."

Scott Development fabricated and installed 18 bars in both public and member areas. The materials varied from stainless steel, zinc and granite to solid timbers and veneer panels.

The company was also responsible for the fit-out of Corporate Boxes and the Members' Room, which features Tasmanian blackwood panelling.

Other recently completed projects by Scott Development include the RACV building and the Instyle head office in Richmond.
