The St Helen’s Sports Complex project was one of those projects that Bison had to have! Having been involved with the design since its inception, the Bison team worked hard to achieve the desired result – a large clear span building that was cost effective, yet architecturally attractive. Bison Constructions was chosen by AJR Construct to fabricate this superstructure, including the supply of all the cladding, flashings and rain water products. Lifting the roof off the ground in one single lift with parapet walls and the box gutter in place was completed with ease.

This again demonstrates Bison’s commitment to do as much as possible at ground level, making the build process safer, quicker and more economical.


  • Multi profiled and spaced cladding for an authentic appeal
  • Totally painted 36m clear-span structure
  • High level natural lighting using Wonderglas
  • Structural support for fold-up basketball backboards


St Helen's stadium project was great! Seeing this project go from a concept right through to completion has been really satisfying, to say the least. We worked hard with the designers to get a good mix in terms of cost versus aesthetics, we went well fabricating it, and constructing it onsite went like a breeze!

It is a new building which also incorporates the refurbishment of an existing building. In terms of the stadium from a sporting perspective, it is being built to an excellent standard and we have incorporated a number of green aspects into the building.
