Banyards are working with Imtech North, delivering Commissioning Management services on the expansion of Anfield Football Stadium, home of Liverpool Football Club. An innovative construction programme will maintain much of the existing main stand in operation throughout the project.
The first phase will involve adding a third tier to the Main Stand, providing an additional 8,500 seats, taking the Anfield capacity to around 54,000. With more than 3,000 tonnes of steel already erected at Anfield, the Main Stand expansion project is on schedule for completion during the 2016-17 season – creating one of the largest single stands in European football.
The second phase will then see the Anfield Road Stand be expanded to add a further 4,800 seats.
