Aussie-based construction firm builds $10 million ‘urban Viking’ for Adelaide

The Australian Construction and Urban Development Organisation (ACUDO) has completed construction of a $10-million, five-storey structure for the Adelaide Oval.

The Viking will be the first of a series of new urban structures in the Adelaide area.

The construction of the $10.6 million structure was completed by local engineering firm CTS, with help from CTS of Queensland.ACUDOA’s director of urban infrastructure, Geoff Jones, said the project was one of many that would be completed in the city over the next two years, including a new $1-million stadium.

“We’ve got a long-term plan for the city that we’re working on, a huge project with lots of other projects, so this is the first big piece of it,” Mr Jones said.

“What we’re doing is bringing our workforce together and we’ve got to get the job done.”

The Viking, which will be completed by mid-2019, is designed to accommodate two Olympic-size swimming pools and two indoor tennis courts.

Mr Jones said the Viking’s construction had been well received.

“It’s been really well received,” he said.
