The new Sydney Football Stadium is beginning to take shape
The new Sydney Football Stadium is beginning to take shape with the installation of the first structural steel and precast concrete seating plats.
The plats span between structural steel raking beams (rakers) and the seats will be attached to each plat. The plats come in 15 different varieties and their weights vary from two tonnes to 23 tonnes, with the lengths ranging from one and a half metres to more than 14 metres.
Andrew Redmayne and Remy Seimsen of Sydney FC, Victor Radley of the Sydney Roosters, Grace Hamilton of the Wallaroos and Alex Newsome from the NSW Waratahs, joined the Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee on site to mark the milestone and see the progress at their home ground.
