Multiplex, a global contractor, has completed the Victoria Racing Club’s (VRC) new $128 million Club Stand at the Flemington Racecourse.

Designed by Bates Smart Architects, the five-level Club Stand (pictured above) is the 10th grandstand to be built at Flemington since 1865.

VRC Chairman Amanda Elliott said the Club is delighted to reach this significant milestone ahead of its hallmark events in the spring racing season.

According to Multiplex, construction of The Club Stand generated an estimated 350 full-time equivalent jobs over the 18-month construction period with a peak workforce of 435 workers on site.

Approximately 1,500 tonnes of steel were used during construction with one tower crane and up to six mobile cranes on-site each day during the main structural steel construction period.

It offers 360-degree views of the Mounting Yard, race track, Members Lawn, Parade Ring, Betting Ring and Winning Post.

Multiplex recently completed a similar project, the redevelopment of Randwick Racecourse (pictured below) for Australian Turf Club in 2013.
