BGC Construction will begin work next month on the $95 million redevelopment of nib Stadium, after the state government announced it as the successful bidder today.

Sport and Recreation Minister Terry Waldron said today that all temporary sections of nib Stadium would be replaced, and a new permanent grandstand and open corporate seating would be completed by March 2013.

The new design is being produced by national architecture firm Cox Architecture, which was awarded a Victorian architecture medal last year for its AAMI Park rectangular arena development in Melbourne.

The stadium will have a capacity of 20,500 once the first stage of the redevelopment is complete, and a reduced capacity of 9,500 while work is under way.

“I am very pleased with the work the Department of Sport and Recreation and Building Management and Works has done in including this scope of work within our $95.14 million budget,” Mr 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.”
