ADCO completes Stonnington Sports Complex
The City of Stonnington’s largest ever investment in community sport is complete, with the Stonnington Sports Centre now open to the public.
ADCO was thrilled to be the Builder of Choice for this project consisting of the demolition of existing facilities and construction of car parking, a four-court multipurpose stadium with change rooms and offices, tennis courts, community facilities, cafe and bowling green.
Over 160,000 hours were worked, with 140 people on site during peak construction and over 1,300 people inducted to site over the course of the project. We removed the equivalent of 40 Olympic size swimming pools of soil from site and recycled 98% of construction waste.
As a fitting tribute the stadium has been named “Margaret Connellan Stadium” after a passionate community member who for many years advocated for netball and the provision of sporting facilities for the community. In the early days of Netball in Stonnington, Margaret would often be seen sweeping the old Cato Street car park in Prahran before Sunday morning games and was a regular at Council meetings advocating for the stadium to be built.
