THE COMPANY that has designed Rockhampton's proposed stadium and convention centre has played a lead hand in some of the world's most recognisable infrastructure.
Populous is an international collective of architects, designers and technical experts.
Its past projects include the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, the iconic Yankee and Wembley stadiums and Australia's leading venues - Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium, Sydney's ANZ Stadium and Melbourne's Etihad Stadium.
Capricorn Enterprise is driving the Rockhampton project and will lobby the State Government for funding for the $150million proposal.
CEO Mary Carroll is calling on the community to stand up and show its support.
She said the stadium and convention centre would provide an immediate economic benefit to the region and would be a driver for further development.
She said Populous's involvement in the project was a coup for the region.
"This is an internationally renowned design company that specialises in convention and stadium space," Ms Carroll said.
"To have such a firm working on this project again reinforces its credibility."
An update on the plans will be released next week.
