Keeping up with an increasing demand for capacity

Hobart's Blundstone Arena in Bellerive has a long-standing tradition of hosting international cricket games over the years. More recently, Australian Football League (AFL) games were also added to the range of sports being hosted at the venue. With the increased demand for quality seating, together with the much-anticipated ICC World Cup, Cricket Tasmania added a new 5000 seat boutique grandstand on the western side of the ground.

Our team worked closely with architects DWP Suters and Artas along with Cricket Tasmania to deliver the new grandstand, named Ricky Ponting Stand. The new stand houses new facilities, including a warm-up area that is complete with public viewing areas, flexible change room facilities, and corporate hospitality provisions. In addition to game day facilities, the Ricky Ponting stand also houses Cricket Tasmania's new headquarters. We designed the upgraded CCTV and public address systems, with particular consideration for the stadium acoustics, and provided the fire engineering for the project designing cutting edge evacuation modelling throughout the new and existing stands.

Now complete, athletes and sports fans alike will be able to enjoy modern facilities and an enhanced experience.
