The Victoria Racing Club has appointed Multiplex to build a new stand at Flemington Racecourse to the value of $128 million.

The five level Club Stand, designed by Bates Smart Architects is the 10th grandstand to be build at Flemington since 1865. Construction is slated to begin after the 2016 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The new Club Stand will feature 360 degree views of the Mounting Yard, race track, Members Lawn, Parade Ring, Betting Ring and Winning Post. 

A first floor walkway will connect the Club Stand t to the existing Members Stand and Parade Ring. A new north-south corridor will form the heart of the new Club Stand and will also link the Betting Ring with the Members Lawn and Mounting Yard. 

The Members Lawn will also be enlarged as part of the project and seamlessly linked to function spaces on Level One by a grand sloping tier of seating encompassing viewing platforms and gardens.

A rooftop garden will be built on level five.

Graham Cottam, regional managing director at Multiplex said the new Club Stand is world-class and will deliver a completely new experience for racing patrons.
