Progress Update 27-04-16

Stadium Development Project Manager Peter Smith tracks all of the latest changes to Ashton Gate as the £45million rebuild continues.

The recent installation of seats has added a splash of colour to the West Stand. Almost half the lower tier seats are fixed with the upper tier finished, except for the end blocks, which have been left to maintain work access to the inside gables. 

The external gable side walls are similarly difficult to reach and so our contractor has been cladding these using a team of skilled rope access installers. We expect to see the seating deck completed within the next few weeks but we’ll keep the plastic covers on until as late as possible to protect the seats during the final phases of work and the annual pitch renovation.

The shell of the building is almost complete apart from some low level curtain walling and a few bays which have been deliberately left open to facilitate loading materials to the upper floors and roof. Inside the building, the upper floors have fully taken shape with M&E (mechanical and electrical) being installed along with toilets, tiling, doors and hygienic walls inside the kitchens.

The player accommodation and media facilities which stretch from the tunnel to the northern quadrant of the West Stand are taking their final form with the last few walls and floors being finished following the installation of the changing room underfloor heating last week.

Much of the work on the stadium itself will soon disappear inside the stand and although not visible from the outside, M&H will be as busy on site as at any time during the Phase 3 works. At a later date work will start on completing the external areas of the stadium and car parks. It promises to be a very busy spring and early summer for everyone involved.
