Stadium upgrade creates local opportunities

GMHBA stadium at Kardinia Park Stage 5 Redevelopment


A new northern standard will be delivered as part of the upgrade, increasing the seating capacity by 14,000 to 40,000. Works also include several major improvements including a new northern entry plaza, change rooms, a regional cricket hub and replacement facilities for the Geelong Cricket Club, and new media facilities. A local content target of 91% has been set for the project under the State Government’s Local Jobs First policy. BESIX Watpac is aiming to have more than 50% of subcontractors engaged on the project from the local Geelong region. The project is also targeting a minimum of 3% Indigenous employment with an aspirational goal of 6%, with a minimum of $1.2 million will be allocated to purchasing goods and services from social enterprises.
