Optus Stadium is a six-level steel and concrete stadium with 60,000 seats in a colosseum seating bowl, and the ability to expand to 70,000 seats. On the Burswood Peninsula, about five kilometers east of Perth’s central business district, Stadium Park offers spectacular views over the Swan River to the city. This world class venue is the third largest stadium in Australia and hosts major AFL, cricket, rugby union and league matches, soccer, and entertainment events.
The stadium was completed three weeks ahead of schedule by the project team.
This project won the Tekla Global BIM Awards 2018 in the Best Sports and Recreation category.
DBM Vircon developed the BIM protocols, specifications, and upskilled the delivery team to continue BIM deliverables post detailed documentation and into construction. By automating processes, the company was able to significantly decrease the resources needed to complete the BIM project. This allowed the delivery team to focus on project critical tasks.
As this was a fast-paced Design & Construction delivery, it was a steep learning curve for the whole project team.
