More scrutiny over new stadium

There will be more attention to detail in the construction of the new Stadium Southland.

A report into the collapse of the roof during a heavy snowfall in September points to issues with engineering errors and work quality during construction over 10 years ago.

The report was prepared by a three-person Stadium Review Committee for the trustees of the Southland Indoor Leisure Centre Charitable Trust.

The report recommends that an engineer is engaged to design the rebuild and that it be subject to peer review before construction. It also recommends that a programme of quality control be implemented in consultation with the builder, architect, engineer and Invercargill City Council.

Work is underway to have a new stadium ready in 2012.
