Steelwork completes on Commonwealth Games stadium
Work on the redevelopment of the Alexander Stadium, which will host athletics as well as the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, has reached a milestone with the completion of steel erection.
Working on behalf of main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey, BHC has fabricated, supplied and erected 1,400t of steelwork for the stadium’s new West Stand.
Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “This is an exciting milestone and it is testament to the hard work and efforts of all involved that we have made such progress despite the challenges of delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We can now clearly see what the new stadium will look like when complete – congratulations to everyone who is working on the redevelopment.”
