New Main Stand – Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool FC’s new £114m main stand has added more than 8,000 seats in a third tier, taking the official new capacity of Anfield to 54,074.
FK’s remit included the construction of the new stand’s roof and walls, as well as a number of roofing and cladding alterations to both the existing Kop and Anfield Road stands.
FK also designed an entire new frontage to the stadium, introduced pedestrianised podiums and a new Hillsborough memorial area.
Clearly, our work had to be organised around the constraints of the football season with the season’s start being our deadline. With no access to the pitch surface allowed, we used rope access and extensive working platforms suspended from the existing structure. These allowed us access to the soffit and enabled undersealing of the roof.
