The brief was to demolish the existing concourse that was situated behind the clayton end stand, and rebuild a brand new concourse with a new fanzone area, new toilet facilities, bar areas, hot food areas, storage areas, new laundry room and new first aid facilities, this work also included a brand new drainage system and new services infrastructure for the technology being installed within the new area.
The works also included new pitch side barriers, new seating, and forming the new concrete terraces and barriers for the new all standing terrace. The whole of the Wham stadiums steel was given a new makeover using hundreds of litres of red paint.
It was a big ask, as ASFC, required the works completing in 9 weeks during the out of season time. Readstone Construction and its great team of subcontractors pulled together and completed what is a fantastic looking stand in the time required. We hope the fans o Accrington Stanley FC like the new look.
The project was completed within the timescale, and on budget.
The opening game against Doncaster Rovers FC proved to be a huge success.
