Stadium update: February
The club’s stadium construction took a significant step forward this week as the foundations of the playing venue’s East Stand (BT Murrayfield end) and South Stand (Tram line end) were laid.
This stage in the building process will allow the stands to be erected in the coming months, with the West Stand (Water of Leith end) foundations set to poured at the tail end of this week.
With over 500 tonnes of concrete poured during this process, it has been a substantial breakthrough in the building project.
This week has also seen the setting out and formation of the floodlight bases, which will also be poured with concrete over next few days.
The floodlight columns are now on site, being wired in preparation for installation and, once foundations are set, will be erected over the course of the next few weeks.
Works will continue over the course of next weekend’s Guinness Six Nations match against France, with Arena arriving on site next Monday (2 March) to begin the delivery and preparation for the stand installation process.
That development will see the West Stand constructed first, with building moving anticlockwise to the South, East and finally finishing on the North Stand.
