A John Laing-Brookfield consortium has won the contract to build the new Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct in Western Australia (WA).
Westadium has agreed a deal with the WA state government to design, build, partially finance and maintain the new facility.
The consortium team’s roles are as follows:
- John Laing is the investor and manager for the project;
- Brookfield Multiplex is the design and construction contractor;
- Brookfield Financial is the financial adviser; and
- Brookfield Johnson Controls is the facilities manager for 25 years.
Westadium ‘s John Flecker, CEO of Brookfield Multiplex Australasia, said: “The team - Cox Architects, Hassell, HKS and Arup - have high profile projects of a similar nature to the new Perth Stadium to their credit, including many of Australia’s and the world’s best known sporting facilities.
“Past projects include the recent major redevelopment of the Sydney Cricket Ground, Adelaide Oval’s new western stand, USA’s biggest stadium - the 100,000 capacity AT&T Stadium in Texas, and the Beijing 2008 Olympic National Aquatics Centre.”
Construction of the stadium will begin at the end of this year and will be completed in time for the start of the 2018 Australian Rules Football League season.
