Works in Progress

Venues NSW have appointed North Construction and Building Pty Ltd via a tender process to manage the removal and replacement of the remaining non-compliant cladding at McDonald Jones Stadium following earlier cladding remediation works in two non-fire-isolated internal evacuation stairwells and parts of the internal concourse.


Works on the Western Grandstand have now commenced and are expected to take up to five months to complete.


The safety of staff, patrons and hirers remains our number one priority and we will ensure that disruption to scheduled events is limited during this period.


Adjusted evacuation plans and other mitigation strategies implemented in 2019 will continue until the new, compliant cladding is installed.


We look forward to continuing to provide a safe venue for the ongoing enjoyment of our patrons, hirers and staff for many years to come.
