Project Win | Brisbane Lions – Brighton Homes Arena

Hutchies has engaged VAE Group to undertake the design and construction of the mechanical services on the Brisbane Lions – Brighton Homes Arena (previously, The Reserve Community Arena) project at Springfield, located approximately 26km from the Brisbane CBD.

The Brighton Homes Arena will be the new home of the Lions’ Australian Football League, Women’s (AFLW) team and includes the development of a high-performance training and support centre for both the men’s and women’s teams. Construction of the project’s main works valued at $58.3m began this week.

The below renders show the final design of the Lions new home.

The Arena will host up to 10,000 spectators, with grandstand seating for 600 fans. The combination of seated and standing spectators in the hill areas and tiers around the oval have been designed to bring the supporters as close to the football as possible.

The public will be able to enjoy the Lions experience all year round, with access to a range of recreational facilities which form part of the open community hub.

The project is due for completion in quarter 4, 2022, ready for the kickoff of the AFL Women’s 2023 season.
