Mossop commenced the Bennett Oval Grandstand Upgrade in mid-October 2019 with a fast track program with critical drop dead completion date for mid-February 2020 to accommodate the AFL 2020 preseason match to be held at the ground. Works were completed on program.
Works comprised a total refurbishment of the inside and outside of the grandstand including installation of a new canopy structure, new coach’s boxes located in the grandstand, and facilities as well as an extension of the existing grandstand, housing new amenities with new toilets and showers for players and public use.
New construction works include new doctor’s quarters and office facility plus associated works with the placement of new modular Canteen block and Bar block to service the refurbished grandstand.
The total upgrade will bring the complex up to national sporting standards for AFL and Cricket.
