nib Stadium Redevelopment
Allia Venue Management congratulates the State Government on their commitment to upgrade nib Stadium which the Minister of Sport and Recreation Terry Waldron has confirmed will include the redevelopment of eastern, southern and northern sections of the stadium.
The redevelopment will consist 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 will also be included. A new playing surface will be installed between July and October 2013, with the seating in the northern bowl area going in at the same time.
Speaking earlier today, Minister Waldron said “This is a fantastic result for our rectangular sporting codes as the redevelopment will provide a huge boost to the stadium amenity and, in turn, will provide a much better spectator experience.”
Allia CEO Peter Bauchop has added, “We entirely agree with Minister Waldron’s comments that this upgrade will truly provide a huge boast for all rectangular sports at nib Stadium. We congratulate the efforts of the Department of Sport and Recreation and the wider State Government on their extensive efforts in the process so far. We look forward to seeing the redevelopment progress and of course the end result which will provide significant benefits to all sporting codes and events held at nib Stadium.”
Minister Waldron also confirmed this morning that BGC Construction has been awarded the contract for the stadium redevelopment and that works are due to commence in early July 2012. It is anticipated that works will be completed in March 2013.
