Adelaide Oval Western Grandstand Media Box

Newly refurbished Adelaide Oval

SHAPE was engaged by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure to undergo an extensive redevelopment of Adelaide Oval, Western Grandstand. It was a large project that required the construction of a new media facility, coaching boxes, interchange benches and food and beverage areas in readiness for the Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test and the AFL football season for 2014.

The project required the installation of a range of technically complex features. These intricate designs involved a curved roof, external facade, and ceiling to produce an exceptional high quality media centre.


As part of the Adelaide Oval Redevelopment the existing Western Grandstand required modification to provide an AFL media and operation facilities. A key requirement of the project was to undertake the works over a compressed timeframe. The SHAPE project team was able to deliver a difficult and challenging project on time to enable the facility to be utilised for the 2013 Ashes. SHAPE worked well with the client, design team and other contractors to resolve design and constructability issues whilst maintaining the construction programme.
