The original grandstand, now known as TIO Stadium, was constructed in 1990 under the direction of Government.
Under building legislation, an occupancy permit completes the certification process, however this was not obtained for the original structure of the stadium at the time of construction.
The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics has been working with building certifiers to finalise the certification for the original grandstand building.
Since its construction, the department has been undertaking ongoing maintenance and upgrade works to ensure the building is maintained to a high level of safety and reliability.
Recent improvement works to this facility include upgrades to the fire safety services, improved accessibility for the public including upgrades to the lifts and fire stairs, renovations and upgrades to the public bathrooms, canteen and bar upgrades. Certification requirements have been met for these works.
The department is committed to ensuring the ongoing safety and integrity of this significant Territory asset, and will continue to maintain and manage the stadium to ensure it remains safe for all Territorians.
