Project Description

Investigating the Cause of the WIN Stadium Collapse

More than two years after the roof of WIN Stadium’s western grandstand collapsed, we now know why it happened.The roof of the newly constructed WIN Stadium’s western grandstand buckled in strong winds on the afternoon of September 20, 2011.

The fault centred on one of the trusses at the southern end of the roof.

There are a series of trusses in the roof, each of which features members that form the shape of a triangle.

Expert reports were issued by DW Knox from KPH Consulting during 2014.
