Full Height Of Everton Stadium Revealed

Watch more work on the roof of the Blues' future home.

The full height of Everton Stadium is now evident with the installation of supporting steelwork trestles for the roof trusses.

The curved support structure at the rear of the north stand is awaiting the first of the giant trusses, which are being pieced together at ground level before being carefully lifted into place, starting this week.

The depth of these trusses varies between 4m deep at the supports, to around 11.5m at mid-span.

There are two trusses in the north stand, each comprising of three pre-assembled sections which are lifted into place individually.

The roof truss installation in the south stand will then commence in the coming weeks, with three trusses to be installed atop the end that will eventually house 13,000 Evertonians.

Again, these three comprise of three pre-assembled sections - and all will then be hoisted into place individually and joined up.

Each of the 15 lifts of individual sections of truss are approximately 100 tons in weight, and mark a milestone moment in the build. 

Elsewhere, at Bramley-Moore Dock, work is well underway on the third level of the west (main) stand, closest to the River Mersey, and on the second level of the opposing east stand. Unlike the steel structures in the north and south, these two stands are predominantly concrete builds.
