Construction is now complete on the $74 million 20,500 seat nib Stadium, the home of Perth Glory and the Western Force Super Rugby Teams.
BGC Construction handed over the project after seven months, during which the stadium remained operational with a reduced capacity of 9,500 seats.
The redevelopment consisted of a covered eastern grandstand complete with new food, beverage and toilet facilities, a 250-seat barbecue terrace and seating for approximately 420 patrons in open corporate boxes.
A new uncovered permanent southern stand, two large video replay boards, a new whole-of-stadium PA system, CCTV surveillance system and new pitch lighting has also been included. A new playing surface was installed between July and October 2013, with the seating in the northern bowl area going in at the same time.
According to BGC Construction Senior Projects Manager Chris Spooner, the project has provided a real boost to the facilities at the stadium.
“Sporting and entertainment fans alike will benefit from the upgrade, and all visitors will enjoy a far superior viewing experience in the future.”
