Contractors wanted for Yarrow Stadium repairs

Contractors are being sought to work on the redevelopment of New Zealand’s Yarrow Stadium, the New Plymouth venue that was badly damaged by an earthquake in 2016.

Registrations of interest are being sought from companies looking to provide construction services on the North Island venue, which continues to operate at a significantly reduced capacity. The stadium is home to Taranaki Rugby.

The project includes repairs to Yarrow Stadium’s two main stands, which have not been used since June 2018 as they are considered an earthquake risk.

There will also be technology upgrades, new LED lighting and improvements to the pitch.

Interested parties have until 6 March to register their interest, with work set to commence in June following the tender process.

The stadium project is proceeding on a budget of up to NZ$50 million.

The vision is to create the best regional stadium in New Zealand that regularly hosts national and international sports and entertainment events.
