Stadium update: Construction continues
With construction now back underway on the club’s new stadium following last month’s project resumption, contractors continue to make significant progress on site at BT Murrayfield.
The construction team – who continue to follow Scottish Government health and safety guidelines regarding COVID-19 – have been back on site since 15 June with the stadium’s infrastructure and stands now really beginning to take shape as detailed in the imagery below.
Main Contractor Malcolm Group continue to make steady and ongoing progress with the project’s groundworks, including drainage trench works, drainage for the stand roof, as well as utility services trench works.
This period of construction has also seen SP Energy Networks install the stadium’s substation, while developments continue to be made on the water mains pipework jointing and installation.
As well as this, contractors have continued with the stone fill under the North Stand, while trench works have been developed for the container bar on the East side of the ground.
Arena make stands progress
The South, West and East stands are now nearing completion as Arena continue to make rapid progress following last month’s construction restart.
Arena have now begun to install the roofing on each of three stands and once this stage of the project is complete, the contractors will move to begin the construction of the Main North Stand, that will include team seating, coaches box, press seats and TV gantry.
