The Oval Hotel is an iconic project for South Australia.
It will be built on two elevated pods that follow the external curves of the eastern façade of the stadium and therefore will not encroach on the parklands or the plaza. The pre-fabrication work commenced immediately off-site with initial on-site construction activity beginning some months later, ahead of major construction works starting at the conclusion of the AFL home and away season.
A prefabricated reception pod will span between the North and South hotel structures. Working within a fully functioning environment is a priority to the Team and minimising the impact of construction on gameday patrons at the East Gate will remain a priority throughout the build.
The project fully complied with the South Australian Industry Participation Policy, which includes requirements for hiring of South Australian workers as well as use of locally produced steel.
