Virgin Stadium Mackay provides a full NRL standard football field and 3000 seat stadium for the city of Mackay in Queensland.

As well as providing multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy and design, we also project managed the $8.8 million development to ensure on time delivery with the support and coordination of local, federal and state councils.

The project was delivered on extremely tight budget constraints and with a large amount of community involvement, with local companies being contracted to help with the construction of the stadium.

Virgin Stadium has seating for 12,200 people and is fitted with four 30-metre high light towers, each holding 44 lights, bringing the stadium into line with NRL and Fox Sport hosting standards. The federally funded project also included an upgrade of the Mackay Juniors Rugby League facilities (change rooms, lighting of fields, canteen and offices).

We were responsible for all engineering services and the management of all other consultants on the project. Our design included the new field and NRL standard light towers and a post-disaster centre within the stadium itself.
