Perth Stadium is classed as a Design, Build, Finance and Maintain Project by the WA Government.
The Western Australian government has released figures revealing that the construction of the Perth Stadium has stimulated the local economy with more than $450 million worth of contracts going to local companies. According to the figures, local companies received about 80 per cent of the stadium subcontracts, with a swath of labourers working on the site.
- CASC won a $30 million contract to supply formwork and concrete for the stadium.
- Civmex was awarded a $73 million steelwork contract for the new $1 billion Perth Stadium at Burswood
The State will contribute 60% of the construction cost of the Stadium and Sports Precinct and Westadium has procured the balance of finance to fund the Project.
- The $1.45 billion Perth Stadium and surrounding Stadium Park will officially open with a free Community Open Day on Sunday January 21, 2018. Tickets for the opening day went on sale on November 9th, and the 70,000 allocation was exhausted in three hours.
