The Perth Stadium development is a multi-purpose venue which caters for AFL, rugby, soccer, cricket and entertainment events. The project will be the third biggest capacity stadium in Australia seating more than 60,000 people in AFL mode.

Scope of Work: DBM Vircon’s scope covers 2 critical aspects of the project. The BIM Management for Brookfield Multiplex on the Stadium, including training and knowledge transfer to the Brookfield Multiplex project team on the project and Shop Detailing in close collaboration with the Architect/Designer and Fabricator for the +15,000 tons of steel supply for this facility.

The approach to the project ensures that systems, relationships and forums will be used to comprehensively develop the BIM Management Plan in collaboration with the State, the Operator, the Facilities Manager and the D&C Team including key subcontractors and suppliers, consultants and key stakeholders. In conjunction with the shop detailing, this best practice BIM Management approach maximises the benefit to the project owners.
