Following the conclusion of football at St. Andrew’s Stadium for the FIFA Men’s World Cup 2022, work to demolish the lower tiers of the Tilton Road Stand and the Kop Stand began on Saturday 12 November.
Buckingham Group, which was appointed by Birmingham City Football Club to undertake the main body of the work, has employed sub-contractors EMDD Universal Diamond Drilling Limited to complete the demolition phase of the repairs, with the contractors remaining firmly on schedule following the first week of work.
Starting from Block Two of the Tilton Road Stand, the pre-cast concrete that formed the terraces has been removed, with all demolition around to the Kop/Tilton corner completed within the first week. To date, no unexpected findings have been uncovered during the demolition phase.
Optimising revenue through New Builds, Renovations and Service Expansions is a key focus for the ALSD International series of events. See what you missed at ALSD International 2022 by watching the wrap video online here.
Work commencing this week, Monday 21 November, will be of a similar nature to this week’s work, with EMDD continuing to progress along the lower tier of the Kop.
Once the pre-cast concrete from all areas of the lower tiers has been removed, Buckingham Group will work to remove the concrete from the stadium bowl, separate it from the reinforcement and begin crushing all the remaining concrete.
The Club will continue to update supporters during the current phase of work as it progresses during the World Cup break.
