Officials from Everton and Laing O’Rourke have made a further visit to Severfield Steel Fabricators to review progress of the next deliveries to Everton Stadium.
Thousands of tonnes of steelwork have already passed through the production lines of one of Laing O’Rourke’s key supply chain partners, who have huge fabrication facilities in the north west, in Bolton, and in north Yorkshire, supplying engineered steelwork to form the skeletal structure of the new stadium build at Bramley-Moore Dock.
And with work moving fast, the fabrication of steelwork that will form the next stage of the project is being ramped up as Autumn approaches.
Chief Stadium Development Officer, Colin Chong, said: “The certainty we originally achieved by advance pre-ordering has ensured there will be no delays to this 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.
“The next set of raker beams, standard beams and elements of the roof trusses are progressing well, and this visit was really to check on the programme and marry up the delivery of the precast products to site.
“We were delighted with what we saw. The company is opening up a second production line with deliveries ramping up, as we really want to reap the benefits of the next eight to 10 weeks’ weather.”
