From maximised atmosphere to diverse hospitality and dining amenities, this award-winning stadium takes care of its fans and brings them closer to the action

The world-class, multi-purpose Optus Stadium was designed with one key vision: fans first. That commitment called for an innovative design that would ensure an exceptional atmosphere for every event—and a home ground advantage.

Key design and fans-first features included future-proofed stadium technology (such as full 4G Wi-Fi coverage) and more than 70 food and beverage outlets that you can enjoy without missing a thing. The stadium includes the widest range of seating and hospitality options of any stadium in Australia, and the lightweight fabric roof covers 85% of seats and responds to Perth’s climate conditions. At night, it presents a spectacular glowing halo effect.

We provided design and documentation for the electrical, fire engineering, fire protection, mechanical, sustainability, technology, and vertical transportation components of the project.

With a design that acknowledges Western Australia’s unique sporting, cultural, and Aboriginal heritage as well as a Sports Precinct that provides a spectacular vista across the Swan River to the city, Optus Stadium is a community anchor to be proud of.
