Work is set to begin on the concrete foundations that will support the west stand at Everton Football Club’s new waterside stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. The first of the concrete ground floor slabs will be poured in the coming days, as work commences on the main stands following the initial pre-build of the four cores in each corner.
The erection of the four tower cranes has been timed to tie-in with the super-structure being built on the west and east sides of the stadium.
This is predominantly comprised of precast concrete components which are manufactured off site, transported to Bramley-Moore Dock and then assembled by Laing O’Rourke’s specialist team.
These building blocks arrive on site in a pre-determined order and are effectively slotted together above the concrete foundations, utilising 3D modelling.
The 2022 edition of ALSD International is being hosted at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this September 19-20, with the main focus of optimising revenue through New Builds, Renovations & Service Expansions, with Architecture & Design, Fan Experience, Hospitality & Interiors, Premium Seating, Rebuilding & Recovery, Sales & Service, Sustainability and Technology some of the key pillars. Everton’s Vicky Jaycock and Oliver Wright will both be speaking.
And with the steelwork continuing to be knitted together on the north stand and emerging on the southern elevation – which will eventually form one continuous stand and house approximately 13,000 Everton fans – raker beams that will support the concrete terracing within the bowl are now visible for the first time.
A total of 3,400 terracing units, which will eventually sit on these raker beams to form the internal bowl lining, are being manufactured in Ireland by Laing O’Rourke’s supply chain partner, Banagher Precast, and will be delivered by ship to Liverpool docks, a short distance from the project site.
Laing O’Rourke is construction partner for the stadium, with architects BDP Pattern and MEIS-A Perkins Eastman Studio, with Dan Meis’ role to include reviewing the technical construction specifications and engaging the compliance team ahead of each stage of development to ensure the original design concept remains in place throughout the build.
Venue specialists Forward Associates will collaborate with Everton to design matchday hospitality packages and experiences at the new ground at Bramley-Moore Dock.
A roundtable entitled “Effective Ops & Commercialisation” will be moderated by Shawn Doss, Chief Business Officer – International, Elevate Sports Venues, with speakers Chris Bray, EVP, ASM Global; Oliver Wright, Head of Premium Sales, Hospitality & Catering, Everton; and Roy Westwood, CEO, Forward Associates, on Day 1 of ALSD International 2022.
