Chesterfield to kick off next season in new stadium

Posted on by in News

Chesterfield FC is playing its final season at the Saltergate ground as work is progressing on schedule on the new B2net Stadium which is due to open for the 2010/11 season.

The new 10,338 all-seater stadium is being constructed by GB Building Solutions, with the structural steel frame and precast terracing supplied and erected by Robinson Construction.

Rob McGann, Robinson Contracts Manager said: “We’ve erected 730t of structural steelwork which includes the decking to the corporate facilities for the project, terracing, steps and stairs covered by 15m-long cantilevered Westok tapered rafters, all within the agreed 12 weeks programme.”

The new stadium is located on the outskirts of Chesterfield adjacent to the A61 on a site previously occupied by the Dema Glass factory. The project forms part of a wider regeneration scheme which also includes a number of retail developments.
