Premier Colin Barnett said it was only a year ago the first concrete pile had been driven into the ground.
“The progress since then has been remarkable and construction is now 33 per cent complete based on design and procurement status,” Mr Barnett said.
“With the first of the roof trusses installed recently, the final height of the stadium is now clearly visible.”
Next year is expected to be the busiest phase of construction and about 1000 workers will be on site at the peak of the project.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said WA businesses had significant involvement in the project, with builder Brookfield Multiplex awarding subcontracts to local companies worth more than $159 million.
