Nested in a green park in the Cumberland City Council, West Sydney, the new Eric Tweedale Stadium, named after a “living legend” of the Australian Rugby, is a new construction of a Grandstand for 750 spectators with change rooms, multipurpose room, office, amenities, community function room, canteen, kitchen and a covered viewing deck.

The construction is part of the development of the rugby field that is home to Two Blues Rugby Union Club and will be visited by thousands of sport fans during rugby season. The timber structure that was detailed designed by Rubner Holzbau form part of the top floor of the grandstand and is cantilevering for over 8 mt on top of the seating. With a footprint of about 1.000 sqm, the structure was segmented for transport in container with concealed, factory-assembled connections for a pleasant aesthetic outcome and a guarantee of a quick erection.
