Sports, Culture & the Arts

We put your audience in the box seat

We’re a nation that loves our downtime. If we’re not at home entertaining family and friends, we’re out watching our favourite football team or visiting the latest art exhibition. Entertainment is what Australians do well and it’s what WGE loves to do.

Our widely qualified engineers are experts at building entertainment facilities – sports stadiums, recital halls, theatres, art galleries, concert halls, town halls, convention centres and libraries. Whatever the venue, our focus is the “fan first” experience. Making use of the latest technology whilst implementing green initiatives, we are proud to have been involved with some of Australia’s greatest venues such as Hobart’s Blundstone Arena, Sydney’s Blue Mountain Cultural Centre and Perth’s nib Stadium, Perth’s Optus Stadium and the iconic Fremantle Maritime Museum.

The engineer’s role is to deliver fully compliant designs that contribute to the overall experience of every end user. We understand that the building is only a small part of the experience which should enhance but not interfere with the performance, the art or the game; it is the entertainment itself is that matters most.

Our advice to clients

Understanding stakeholder requirements is key to the success of every project.  For Sports, Culture & the Arts type projects it is imperative to talk to everyone involved, including fan representatives, players, performers, artists, staff and venue managers.  Then apply the innovative thinking of a world class venue-producing engineering team to meet stakeholder needs, aims and desires, to deliver a truly outstanding venue to be proud of.
