ADCO completes Victoria’s State Basketball Centre
Marking completion of the new build at the State Basketball Centre for the Victorian Government, Premier of Victoria Jacinta Allan and Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos, attended the facility for the official opening.
ADCO was thrilled to be the builder of choice for the $132 million plus project – including $27 million in funding from Knox City Council – designed to meet the growing popularity and participation of basketball and gymnastics, and a facility to meet all state and national basketball needs.
Located in the Knox Regional Sports Park, Wantirna South, the State Basketball Centre includes:
/ 12 new indoor basketball courts adding to the existing 6 courts
/ Comprehensive training facilities for high performance basketball including WNBL and NBL teams
/ New gymnastics facilities
/ New administration facilities to support sports organisations and clubs
/ A town square space and cafe
We are very proud to have worked with Development Victoria to achieve over 90% of the total contract value being local content, over 8% (30,000 hours) of labour hours for trainees, cadets and apprentices and engaged over 80 women on the project across various management and trade roles.
Thank you to all our people, client, consultants and trade partners on a collaborative effort to successfully deliver one of the most impressive sporting facilities and largest basketball centre in Australia.
