Client: ACT Sport and Recreation, Territory Venues and Events and ABA Construction Managers
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:
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.
