Stadium update: Our new home takes shape
With construction continuing to advance on the club’s new stadium, the project has taken significant steps to nearing completion, with Edinburgh Rugby growing ever closer to moving #HomeAtLast.
With all four stands now in place, supporters will have seen major developments in the project via the club’s social content, detailing the continued progression since construction resumed in mid-June.
Now in October, the stadium continues to take shape, giving supporters a real sense of how match night will look and feel in our new home.
As we move into the Winter months, contractors continue to battle the elements to ensure the construction of the stands continues and that all structures are completed in due course, while the associate electrical installations have also continued throughout.
Further developments made in recent weeks of construction include:
The extent of the synthetic carpet is now visible with the engineered (porous asphalt) layer now in place.
A final shock-pad under layer – designed to cushion player impact – is ready to be installed before the arrival of the final playing surface in the coming weeks.
The new specialist floodlights are now connected with layout, alignment and commissioning complete.
The first batch of Portakabin toilet facilities have arrived, with 50% of the new toilet blocks now installed on-site at BT Murrayfield.
Keep up with the latest development of the club’s stadium project using #HomeAtLast on social media, or head to the club’s stadium information hub. As construction continues, supporters can also get a look and feel for matchday with this animated fly-through!
