$15.8m complex is just the start

Posted: 3pm 01 Oct 2020

The huge new $15.8 million complex being built by Moreton Bay Regional Council at South Pine Sports Complex (SPSC) is on track to open next year.

The indoor centre’s first-storey floor concrete has been poured meaning the project is now almost two-thirds complete. It is scheduled to be ready early next year.

Mayor Peter Flannery toured the facilities in Brendale, with Councillor Cath Tonks (Div 9), saying it was one of six SPSC precincts council was investing in.

Lesson learned

“One thing we learned in lockdown is the importance of sporting infrastructure to our daily lives, so it’s great to see the indoor sporting complex nearing completion,” he says.

“We have plans to invest a further $135 million to ensure future generations have a healthy lifestyle.

“The Brisbane Roar Women and Youth teams have committed to relocating to a new football centre of excellence at the sports complex in time for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.”

Multi-purpose

The indoor complex extension includes three multi-purpose courts, canteen and spectator areas, function and event space, universal changerooms, amenities and retractable seating. The project also includes a new $2.3 million rugby union and touch football clubhouse.

“With the first-floor slab down we’ve now commenced works on the north and south administration sections of the indoor centre, and preliminary works on its new courts,” says BBN Constructions director Brett Hardner.

Cr Tonks says: “Our region is growing at a rapid rate, so it’s vitally important we continue to develop state-of-the-art facilities like the indoor sports centre and rugby clubhouse for the next generations.”
