A new video has been produced to mark the second anniversary of construction work commencing on Everton’s stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
The £500m project began with a feat of maritime engineering, as a semi-derelict dock was filled with 480,000 cubic metres of sea-dredged sand to provide solid foundations.
The 52,888 all-seater stadium, on the banks of the River Mersey has since progressed rapidly thanks to the pioneering method of Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) adopted by main contractor Laing O’Rourke.
The super structure has been pieced together using the technologically advanced DfMA. This involves all of the steelwork and precast concrete being manufactured in advance, off-site, under factory conditions before arriving on site in a pre-determined order and slotted together utilising 3D modelling.
More than half a million hand-laid bricks will clad Everton Stadium with the 731 brick façade panels manufactured under carefully-monitored factory conditions then hung in sequence.
The coming months will see the roofing structure completed, with the aim of making the stadium watertight to aid the internal fit-out, which is already well under way in the east and west stands.
Everton Stadium is due for completion in late 2024.
