Victoria Racing Club’s (VRC) brand new $128 million state of the art Club Stand at Flemington Racecourse has reached the finish line, and now offers a range of new features including the use of recycled plastic to build the Grandstand bench seats. Replas took on the challenge to provide the white recycled plastic seating which covers all three levels of the grand stand and also the trainer viewing platform seating. The iconic five level Club Stand has set a new benchmark for racecourse facilities and represents the 10th Grandstand to be built at Flemington since 1865. The stand was designed by Bates Smart Architects and was constructed by Multiplex.
Graham Cottam, Regional Managing Director for Victoria at Multiplex said,”we are thrilled to complete this iconic new Club Stand for the VRC and ensure that this event destination remains one of Australia’s most outstanding sporting venues. The Club Stand celebrates the rich history and character of Flemington Racecourse and will deliver a new and exciting experience to racing patrons.”
“The Club Stand marks the VRC’s next step in its renewal plans at Flemington and the Victorian Government, Racing Victoria and Tabcorp have supported the project to ensure the racecourse retains its position as a ‘must visit’ world-class sporting, entertainment and tourism venue in Australia.”
