    you'll find that when it is installed and tensioned that water wont accumulate and it will be tensioned so that the rainwater will run off it

    Into an environmentally friendly rain water storage system or the Parramatta river?

    they may have retention onsite, depends on the hardstand area which I imagine will be significant enough to warrant on site storage,

    so yes

    The roof covering is currently only under the roof structure ... is there to be nothing on top?

    On site detention system does not necessarily mean recycling for irrigation but, right ?

    correct

    OSD is to slow down the rate at which the rain water enters the storm water system, as sometimes it falls faster than it can be drained away

    it can be recycled though for irrigation or cistern flushing

    Could be temporary to assist construction for wet days or maybe secondary component to top. Doubt they will have beams exposed to weathering like that

    I believe this is it.
    Nothing covering the exposed structural steel on top. I sourced the videos and this is how it looks at the end and in the videos from the State Govt..

    I'm a bit worried that we are getting a cheap arsed stadium, even though it looks a cracker atm. I've thought this for quite a while but haven't said anything yet. Until now.
    I also think that the egress stairs are extremely small. I know there is a lot of them, but geez, it looks like it will be a shit fight getting out of the place.

    I would say they will collect the water for re-use. May even have an under ground tank to save room outside the stadium.

    Obviously.
    I'm more talking about cheap arsed facilities.
    As much as I think this will be a great stadium for us Westies, and it will be, I can just see the short cuts being taken, and I always have seen this. Not much we can do about it now though.
    I'm still ecstatic at what will be the end result though.
    A vast improvement upon the shithole we had before.

    You see that roof material in shopping centers and other sports grounds all the time. It will be fine.

    I agree. I was shocked when I saw the size of the stair wells. It does appear to look a bit cheap. Are walls going to wrap around the outside of the stands - or just one section only?

    I think Stuart Ayres is getting a bit over excited comparing that stadium to Perth. Ha. You are kidding.

    Yeah, another bonus is that it won't be as loud as tin when it pisses down either.
