Latrobe City Council – Traralgon Sports Stadium Redevelopment

A redevelopment and expansion allowing the centre to host large-scale events.

The newly-named Gippsland Regional Indoor Sports Stadium (GRISS for short) is a multi-purpose indoor sports venue located in the regional Victorian town of Traralgon. A major $19 million redevelopment and expansion of the venue was completed in 2020 and now features nine courts, a show court with 3000 spectator seats, office space, competition changing rooms, training rooms, a commercial kitchen, cafe and function area and caters for a range of indoor sports including basketball, netball and badminton.

GRISS is capable of hosting large-scale events such as regional, national and international indoor sporting championships, floor shows, expos, E-sports competitions, meetings, professional wrestling, martial arts and much more. The stadium is one of Basketball Victoria’s seven high performance training hubs and is home to elite pathway programs in a massive coup for local talent development.

A Project Reference Group (PRG), including community representatives and user groups, met regularly throughout the planning process and helped guide the redevelopment. The project was undertaken for Latrobe City Council as a Design & Construct contract, with Becon Constructions as the lead contractor.

A total of 57 kilometres of Victorian Ash timber flooring – sourced from Heyfield’s Australian Sustainable Hardwoods – was used to floor the extension and the structural frame of the new building was erected by local contractor WELDTEK, using about 320 tonnes of steel.

ThomsonAdsett also provide technical and design assistance throughout the construction phase of this project.
