TMK provides structural & civil engineering services at Western United FC new home ground

Western united fc project 1

TMK recently provided structural and civil engineering technical advice & consultancy for Western United FC. Our team provided services focused on the structural integrity of the 2,000-seat terraced East Grandstand and temporary car parking areas. Services included assessment of the design and detailed structural inspections of the grandstands to ensure adherence to Australian building codes notably for stadiums.

The completion of this first stage features state-of-the-art training amenities, including three football pitches, a two-storey pavilion and capacity for 5,000. Western United has now moved in and both the men and women’s team have played home matches.

As part of its successful bid to enter the A-League in 2019, Western United FC committed to build a 15,000 seat soccer-specific stadium in Tarneit to the west of Melbourne. It will be the first major venue in Australia to be exclusively owned and operated by an A-League club, being funded through value capture.

Wyndham City Mayor, Councillor Jennie Barrera, said completion of the facility marked the first stage of the Council’s landmark A-League Stadium Project with WMG.

The next stage of the project, led by WMG, will deliver a purpose-built, 15,000-capacity football stadium and 800-lot residential community, with WMG recently announcing YourLand Developments and Johnson Controls as major project partners.
