Northrop were the civil and structural engineering consultants for stage one of the Brisbane Cricket Ground redevelopment, otherwise known as the Gabba.
The upgrade consisted of a $27 million dollar refresh of the existing facilities with the focus of making the facility more user and public friendly for upcoming test matches and AFL games.
The redevelopment included the rebadging of the facility incorporating the construction of 4 New Gates Structures as the primary entry into the facility. It also included significant improvements for DDA facilities and corporate and media facilities. Other improvements included the development of new bars and shade structures on the upper terraces of the facility.
Northrop have utilised our long-standing knowledge in sports projects and previous experience of various projects at the Gabba to enhance project outcomes and deliver a streamlined and efficient design for our client.
