Description: Perth Stadium

Construction of a new stadium in Perth (Western Australia) was contemplated since 2007. A new large venue was considered for several locations across the city and eventually settled in Burswood, east of downtown and by the Swan River.

The location is very well communicated with roads, also expected to receive a new pedestrian bridge connecting it with the centre, as well as a railway station. Altogether vast majority of visitors are to arrive by public transport, which allowed decreasing the necessary parking spaces and creation of a leisure precinct.

Due to the site’s wetland location, enabling works on site began very early, in June 2013. Only in late 2014 piling began. The stadium required over 2,000 piles to stabilize its bedding before stands for 60,000 people could start growing.

Construction began in western part of the stadium’s blueprint. By the end of 2015 first portion of the stands is to be ready, while further sections will grow gradually until early 2018. 8 tower cranes and roughly 5,700 people are expected to deliver the $821 million complex.
