  • Why not get a qualified engineer to inspect the damaged grandstand and make a qualified decision on whether the grandstand can be repaired as the proposed "mound" will not attract as many supporters to the SANFL as would a grandstand.

    Vicki Rickard asked 3 months ago

    Hi there,

    Following a severe storm event on 27 December 2016 the roof at the HY Sparks stand at the Glenelg Oval suffered significant damage resulting in the partial demolition of the corrugated iron roof and damage to the brick work and steel support columns.

    Council undertook an engineering assessment of the damage and an IMPARTA engineer produced a structural damage report for the insurance company. The findings of these reports plus a costings report were provided to Council on 14 March 2017. The report included $600k to repair the stand. If Council were to spend the $600k to repair the grandstand, it would only bring it up to the pre storm condition, which was very poor and the worst change room facilities in the SANFL. The Council report included 3 options and the decision was made to demolish the stand and replace with a grass mound and shelter.

    Further to this:

    • The facilities provided within the grandstand didn’t meet some areas of the SANFL requirements and needed upgrading

    • There is some legacy issues with access and egress and compliance that needed to be addressed

    • With current crowds, the 1000 seat Edward Rix stand is more than adequate

    Thank you.
