About the Project

Client:     ACT Sport and Recreation, Territory Venues and Events and ABA Construction Managers
Size:     300m²
Cost:     $1.2M
Date:     2014

GIO Stadium (formerly Bruce Stadium) was originally constructed as an athletics venue for the 1977 Pacific Conference Games.  Located adjacent to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in the Canberra suburb of Bruce, the stadium has undergone a number of redevelopments over the last 35 years.  The athletics track was relocated to within the AIS in 1990, and the ground is now primarily used for rugby league and rugby union – the home for the Canberra Raiders and Brumbies.

AMC were engaged by ABA Construction Managers to redevelop the entry & ticketing facilities to Canberra Stadium in 2013.  The project brief included the following requirements:

  • Design of cost effective temporary new ticketing booths to the west and east entries which sat comfortably with the stadium structure itself
  • Improve access to the stadium entrance to achieve a clear and obvious entry arrangement for members and patrons for a better patron experience generally
  • Improve the overall functionality of the ticketing building to improve efficiency and productivity for Ticketek, the Raiders, Brumbies and other users
  • Ensure optimal performance of  the entry/exit facilities to ensure efficient and secure access and egress to GIO Stadium

Construction of the new entry facilities was complete in February 2014 just prior to the commencement of the 2014 Super Rugby competition.  The new buildings sit very comfortably in front of an imposing stadium structure and the large fascia-mounted GIO signage acts like a beacon for patrons approaching the stadium from all directions.
