Western Springs Stadium Redevelopment
Project: Western Springs Stadium Redevelopment
Client: Auckland Council
Construction & Development
Western Springs Stadium redevelopment was required to bring the pitch up to the RWC practice venue standard and to improve the future performance of the surface as a multi-use facility. The turf had to be robust enough to host speedway races and music concerts immediately following the intensive winter club rugby programme.
Redevelopment of the this multi-use facility involved NZSTI’s agronomists project managing three phases namely; specifying and managing the contract growing of replacement turf, specifying and overseeing the re-construction of the pitch and writing the pitch management programme that ensured the RWC practice venue standard was met.
The right grass selection and correct execution of the works was crucial to ensure a long and durable legacy remained following RWC 2011.
