Steelwork continues to expand from the two northern corners of Everton’s new stadium build at Bramley-Moore Dock.
Spectacular new aerial shots (above) show the speed of the steel installation since the first 18-tonne super-column was installed two weeks ago, with the latticework now extending from both concrete cores as they edge ever closer.
Logistically, the overall build has been helped by the recent laying of a tarmac road – known as ‘The H’ – in the belly of the dock, to allow vehicular access to all four corners of the construction site.
And with the four-month piling operation now complete and MORE THAN 2,500 of the 15m-deep concrete foundations in place, as well as two of the four tower cranes already dominating the skyline, things continue to move at pace.
The four tower cranes, which will all be operational within the next fortnight, will predominantly facilitate and accelerate the assembly of precast concrete structures that make up the east and west stands.
New, four-story offices can also now be seen on the south east corner of the site, which will soon become the nerve centre for operations as the workforce ramps up.
