Weeks to build
Hutchies is proud to be working with the Brisbane Lions Football Club on the construction of their new game-changing AFL training and playing facility in the thriving city of Springfield.
We’ve been working together through an early contractor involvement (ECI) process to complete the design development of the project while on-site civil preparation works were underway. The precinct will be built over the next 16 months ready for the 2023 AFL Women’s season and will secure around 400 local jobs throughout construction.
Known as ‘Brighton Homes Arena’, the precinct will be the new home of the AFLW team and includes the development of a new high performance training and administration centre for both men’s and women’s teams. The specially designed equal facilities will provide players with a state-of-the-art indoor training field (50m by 35m), recovery pools and a large gymnasium big enough to fit all athletes.
Spectators will watch matches from a new boutique arena with capacity for up to 10,000 and a grandstand seating 1,000 people. Locals can enjoy access to a range of public recreational facilities which will form part of the open community hub all-year round. The facility will have live broadcasting of major events through the latest technical media infrastructure.
Designed by globally-acclaimed sports architects and long-term Hutchies consultants, Populous, Brighton Homes Arena will be a world-class home and training centre for the Brisbane Lions. It will be a community asset the locals of Springfield will be proud of and its completion will mark the celebration of 166 years of Australian Football in Queensland.
Hutchies was born and bred in Queensland. We’ve got a vested interest in being part of places that liven up our communities. The new home of the Brisbane Lions will be a game changer for locals and we’re proud to be involved.
