Toffees stadium quickly taking shape
One of the Premier League’s oldest stadiums is set to be vacated as Everton Football Club’s (the Toffees) new ground is quickly rising up on the banks of the River Mersey.
Set to open in 2024, the Bramley-Moore Dock stadium will replace the club’s Victorian-built Goodison Park with a new state-of-the-art ground with a 52,888 all-seater capacity.
Working on behalf of main contractor Laing O’Rourke, Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting the project’s steelwork. Work is currently progressing on the four stands and terracing, while the installation of the cantilevering roofs is due to start before the end of the year.
Chief Stadium Development Officer, Colin Chong, said: “The certainty we originally achieved by advance pre-ordering has ensured there will be no delays to our critical activity and recently, along with senior project leaders from Laing O’Rourke, I had the pleasure of another visit to Severfield, where all remains firmly on track.”
