Here at Horizons West, we’re so excited to have been asked to be a part of the iconic new Perth Stadium! We’ve teamed up with our old mates at Brookfield Multiplex to make sure all the incredibly hard working trades are able to get to site on time every day. We’ve accepted the challenge of shuttling the team to and from site every morning and night from 5.30am to 7.30pm. And let’s not forget just how big the project is, which means a massive 800 workers have been contracted at the point to build this iconic Perth landmark…and that number is set to rise very soon!
But the story doesn’t begin at the Stadium. Our story really begins in March 2009 when Horizons West originally teamed up with Brookfield Multiplex to build the Fiona Stanley Hospital in Murdoch. We worked tirelessly to make sure the whole team got to work on time every day and could get home after a long day’s work on site. The iconic Perth hospital opened its doors in October 2014 and now ranks among the best in the country. We’re so proud to have played a part in such an important project, and we’re so thankful for the friendship that came about from that first partnership.
The amazing team at Brookfield Multiplex have such an inspirational work ethic and eye for detail, which is why it comes as no surprise they’re in charge of building Perth’s incredible new stadium. The stadium is planned to seat over 60,000 visitors and will have a ‘fans first’ approach featuring complete Wi-Fi coverage, a 4-star Green Star rating and 2 massive 340m2 video screens that will be some of the largest in Australia! The venue will host events such as AFL, cricket and rugby, as well as major international sporting events such as the Commonwealth Games. The state of the art venue will even have LED lighting to display home team colours at night! All in all, the Perth Stadium is set to be one of the most important and iconic buildings in the state and Horizons West is honoured to play their part.
Understandably, the project is no small feat. With a predicted 2018 completion date, the team at Brookfield Multiplex will have to work tirelessly to get the job done. Over the next year, the number of contractors required on site each day will increase from 800-1400, meaning Horizons West will have their work cut out for them every day to make sure each day runs smoothly. But we love a challenge at Horizons West, so we’ll be stepping up to the plate and doing our all to get the job done!
Horizons West is absolutely honoured to have been asked to play a part in this incredible project and to play a part in building the future of Perth. Every day on the job is a new moving experience, and that’s what we’re all about here at Horizons West. We hope to work with our good friends at Brookfield Multiplex in the future and are excited to see what the future holds for our beautiful city.
