We’ve worked on many sports and leisure schemes, from internationally renown sports clubs to smaller leisure premises.
The modernisation and redevelopment of this iconic Cricket Club saw the construction of two new stands with a capacity of more than 7,000 seats, four-storey player dressing rooms and state-of-the-art media centre.
Scope of works:
To structurally separate and demolish a number of buildings within the ground’s footprint; structurally separating and demolishing a number of buildings around the Ground; segregation of works area and public areas; internal soft stripping.
As the Club remained fully operational throughout the works, the team had to work to a demanding programme to ensure all matches and events were able to take place as scheduled and in a safe environment. Key liaison with the main contractor, Club and stakeholders was significant. The Point Conference Centre and Hotel were located within one meter of the demolition works.
To enable the development of a new housing scheme, the Berners Swimming Pool at Grange-over-Sands was to be demolished in its entirety.
Scope of works:
The internal soft strip, controlled deconstruction of pool building, ground slabs and foundations broken out, and recycling and removal of waste materials.
The structure was of hybrid construction with a combination of reinforced concrete, structural steelwork and masonry. Although a relatively low level structure, the client nominated ‘top down’ controlled collapse as the proposed method of deconstruction.
