Refurbishing an Alberton Icon - The Fos Williams Grandstand


Restored Fos Williams Grandstand
Brimblecombe Builders restored the Fos Williams Stand at Alberton Oval  in time for the 2016 Family Day.

This was the culmination of 3 stages of remediation and restoration. The final stage involved the removal of asbestos, waterproofing, rendering and airconditioning. Amenities were also updated.
