LEICHHART OVAL

The masterplan created for Leichhardt Oval sought to enable correct positioning of facilities to allow for future expansion and review compliance issues regarding current Australian Standards and BCA.

The First stage of construction works for the project involved the restoration of the historic western stand including provision of new ticketing facilities and Public Domain improvements centred around a new entrance at Mary Street.

Stage Two works included upgrade of the media rooms and refurbishment of change room areas in the main grandstand, new first aid room and toilets in the western Stand, and additional ground maintenance facilities. The Main Grandstand is also being provided with new fire safety measures including fire hydrants and hose reels and new balustrading to comply with current building codes.

Stage Three of the project was completed in 2010 and provides new corporate facilities including a function room, bar, kitchen and a new stair and lift to improve the accessibility of the main grandstand.
