The Brisbane Broncos new $27 million training and administration base at Red Hill – the Clive Berghofer Centre (CBC) is officially open.


DMA Partners Associate Director John Dobrenov said the creation of a quality brief from the get go was paramount to the successful delivery of the five-year project.


“The performance brief was driven by the high-performance culture of the Brisbane Broncos,” said John.


“The brief was informed by new national and international biomedical research and developed in collaboration with all stakeholders including senior management, coaching, medical and operations staff, to ensure the delivery of a world class training facility.


“The space has been designed with a strong focus on encouraging conversation and collaboration across all parts of the club including staff, players and management, which is epitomised in the large communal dining room that encourages the interaction of players and staff across the club.


“There is a strong community feel to the CBC. The space provides significant community interaction and even access to facilities like the lecture theatres used for player briefings and as theaterettes for community groups during the evenings.


“The successful delivery of the CBC demonstrates the power of stakeholder engagement during the briefing stage to ensure assets deliver better commercially orientated spaces and better outcomes for everyone.”


DMA Partners was engaged by the Brisbane Broncos in 2014 as their Development Manager and Project Manager to lead the entire project from the initial briefing, funding negotiations and approvals at federal, state and local government, design management, tender and construction management.


DMA Partners Managing Director, Ryan Andersen said “We are incredibly proud of the outcome that was achieved by the entire team in conceiving and delivering such a fantastic, state of the art facility for the Broncos here in Brisbane.”
