The works included the demolition of the old pavilion that had been on the ground for many years and due to it being located in a persistent flood area the building itself had become dilapidated. During demolition much of the materials were recovered for recycling into new projects.
Following demolition and a two week delay due to torrential rains and flooding, construction began and was completed for the first match of the season.
The pavilion itself was a steel structure built on stilts to rise above future flooding. Inside, the building encapsulated a large open plan hall with bar on the ground floor, the first floor housing changing facilities, toilet/shower areas, a caterers kitchen, commentary box and balcony above the newly installed seating area below. The contract was completed within budget and on time for the grand opening by Graeme Hick.
