North Queensland Stadium – raising the profile of the Townsville Region
The Queensland and Federal Governments and Townsville City Council supported by the NRL and NQ Cowboys joined forces to undertake the construction of a 25,000-seat capacity multi-purpose regional stadium. Costing $250M, its doors are now open for the start of the NRL season in 2020.
The joint venture partners cite the benefits of this milestone project as:
· Expanding NQ infrastructure
· Supporting jobs and flow-on economic benefits
· Fostering urban regeneration and enhanced liveability
The stadium has been designed to deliver exceptional event-day experiences while catering to the tropical climate and taking advantage of its prime riverfront location in the shadow of that pink granite monolith, Castle Hill.
BSF were invited to construct the vast and complex architectural roof featuring a mammoth 2,500 tonne of steel.
