Steel football stadium
Brighton & Hove Albion (The Seagulls) new 22,500 seater stadium includes match day hospitality and conferencing facilities, and an area for City College. The structure includes 2 feature roof trusses supporting polycarbonate roofs to the east & west stands and is the first stadium in the UK to target an excellent BREEAM rating.
Achieved in twelve months
An ambitious 12 month erection programme of approximately 4,200t of structural steelwork has been achieved for this project. Four stands consist of traditional steel rakers supporting precast concrete terrace units, behind which the main structure houses concourses, toilets and shops and is erected with steel beams and columns. The steelwork provides the signature element of this project, especially for the roof structure which undulates and slopes and is said to reflect the local land fall of the South Downs. A project value of £75 million.
