All of the pre-cast concrete components that slot together to form the structure of Everton Stadium have now been produced.
The components, all manufactured offsite at Laing O’Rourke’s specialist factory, are brought on site in a pioneering, high-tech method known as Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA).
These building blocks continue to arrive on site in a pre-determined order to provide the floors, walls, and supporting pillars in the two main stands.
And the speed of the build means that as internal work begins on the ground floor of the west stand, starting with the installation of drainage pipes, workers above are close to having the walls and ceilings in place on the third level.
Temporary weatherproof sheeting is in place in the two lower tiers of the west stand to withstand the elements, while the initial, internal fit-out continues.
The east stand mirrors the critical path set by the west stand, albeit around one month behind, planned due to this stand providing vehicular access to the internal bowl.
But with both concrete stands steadily rising and the roofing structures emerging in the south and north stands, Everton Stadium is taking shape.
