BGC wins $73m sports contract

LEN Buckeridge’s BGC Construction has won a $73 million contract for the development of a basketball and athletics complex at AK Reserve, to replace facilities at Perry Lakes stadium. Construction of the state government-funded project, to be managed by a BGC Perkins joint venture, will begin shortly with completion expected in early 2009. Sport and Recreation Minister John Kobelke said the facilities at Perry Lakes were outdated, unsafe and desperately needed to be replaced. “The facilities will be built across the road from the old Perry Lakes Stadium in the sports precinct, which is already home to Challenge Stadium, the Western Australian Institute of Sport and UWA Sports Park,” he said. “The athletics stadium will become the new state-of-the-art home for athletics in Western Australia with a 2,000 seat grandstand and grassed banking for a further 8,000 people. Mr Kobelke said the co-operation of the University of Western Australia had ensured the new facilities would improve the whole district. The basketball stadium will be an eight-court facility, including a show court and office space for local clubs and Basketball WA, and forms part of the state government’s $21 billion capital works program.
