Cricket ground gets capacity boost
Work currently being undertaken at Edgbaston cricket ground will increase the stadium’s overall capacity to 25,000, in time for next summer’s Test match with India.
A new stand with a capacity to seat 8,250 spectators is being erected; the structure will also house conference facilities and offices.
Working on behalf of main contractor Galliford Try, D A Green & Sons will ultimately erect approximately 1,700t of steel for the project. The company is also carrying out connections to the concrete cores, installing metal decking and applying the steelwork’s fire protection off-site as the structure is being erected close to a busy road.
