The Everton Stadium build waves goodbye to 2022 by offering an exciting glimpse into the Club’s future.
Viewed from above in our final weekly update of the year, the north stand terracing is now complete on the upper levels, with the first of two full-span roof trusses in place, taking the stadium to its full height of just under 45 metres.
The second truss will be installed early in 2023.
The south stand is also progressing on schedule, with most of the twin-stepped terracing units installed across the width of the 13,000-capacity, one-tier home end.
This stand will eventually support three full-span roof trusses, which construction partner Laing O’Rourke plan to have installed by Easter 2023.
Work on the two concrete stands, in the east and west, is also progressing well. Temporary weatherproof sheeting in the centre of west stand has been installed as protection from the elements as the initial internal fit-out begins.
The first batch of brick facades now clad the western wall of the north west core, with gaps deliberately left for the later installation of decorative meshing that will help ventilate the public areas.
On the east elevation, a dedicated roadway and tunnel at ground level continue to provide vehicular access to the internal bowl, with the concrete build itself mirroring the west stand.
On all four sides, the lower tier of terracing has yet to be installed. This planned scheduling allows the cranes working within the bowl to get closer to the actual stands themselves and aid the overall build, before the lower tiers are constructed at a later date.
