Bankwest Stadium (WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM) is part of the NSW Government $1.6 billion Stadia Strategy, aiming to improve sporting infrastructure across the State. The new stadium will form the centrepiece for Parramatta’s transformation, enhancing a sense of place in the revitalised Parramatta CBD’s historic parkland setting.
Judah Steel has worked alongside the Builder Lend Lease to build a stadium that will benefit Western Sydney’s sporting culture immensely. The stadium required continuous onsite reviews including the change of design by our technical team. Judah Steel’s Steel Stud and Track Wall Framing system was used for the external walls in addition to our Top Hats and Top Hat cleats. We provided an external wall design to Contractor Brighton; whom provided complete façade drawings and details to the builder. The external framing solution allowed for extensive wind loads and seismic factors to be considered.
The stadium will be the new home to sporting teams such as the Western Sydney Wanderers and the Parramatta Eels. The project will attract big ticket events and cater for both national and international major sporting events for decades to come, with undercover seating for 30,000 people. The stadium will also cater for corporate and social events, with function spaces to suit such events. Architect Populous thoughtfully included these areas whilst optimising maximal seating for the public.
Judah Steel has maintained a relationship with Brighton Ceilings for over 20 years and continually enjoys working with them. Brighton appreciates Judah Steel’s technical support, quality products and its long-standing reliable relationship. Judah Steel is proud to have worked on this spectacular project, the stadium provided approximately 1,200 jobs throughout construction and has generated between 600-900 jobs operationally.
