“The scope of the Everton Football Club stadium was huge with several different units of a very wide variety, and only Tekla’s constructible 3D BIM model could have made visualising this structure even possible! Mistakes can be avoided when we can see & plan in 3D and collaborate seamlessly on the same model. Tekla gives us this power to visualise in 3D, especially while working on such huge, unique and prestigious projects. At certain end supports in staircases that had complex connections, it was easier to see and visualise the structure because we were using Tekla, and that saved a lot of our time.”

Modelling precast elements for Everton Football Club’s new stadium
The new Everton Football Club stadium will be situated at Bramley-Moore dock on the banks of the river Mersey – on Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront! The football-first sporting arena boasts of an eye-catching design which brilliantly blends the modern with the traditional. This will serve as the next home for Everton Football Club and is one of the most eagerly anticipated stadium development projects on the planet.
The £500m stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock is also setting the standard for sustainability, as one of the most environmentally-friendly football stadia ever built.
As the 52,888-seater stadium takes shape, the Club and Laing O’Rourke – the contract partner – are also improving the health and safety of the workforce, and cutting waste, with a pioneering system of design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA).
This entails precast concrete terrace units and external brickwork panels being manufactured under factory conditions, and slotted into place on site, dramatically minimising wastage, improving safety and saving valuable time.
Team Telge’s scope of work included different precast elements such as wall panels with different shapes i.e., L walls and Parapet walls. There were different L walls on the North Upper and Lower stands as well as the South Upper and Lower stands.
The scope also included modelling 140 stairs as well as rebar modelling of some of the stairs. These stairs had some critical invisible connections at end supports.
