CIOB members can join a virtual site visit to the Alexander Stadium Redevelopment this month to see how the £72m project is taking shape.
The stadium will be modernised, with a permanent capacity of circa 18,000 – up from the current 12,700. The stadium in Perry Barr is unrecognisable from its previous incarnation as work continues at pace.
The demolition of three existing stands has been completed and the site remodelled with steelwork that will form the eye-catching new West Stand, which has started to take shape over the past few months.
The stadium is set to become a focal point of health, wellbeing, sport, academic and community activity in an improved Perry Park – and will be in prime position to lay claim to the title of home of athletics in the UK.
The live webinar takes place at 12pm on 24 February and will show how the construction works are progressing.
The one-hour event will begin with an overview of the scheme and the associated legacy benefits for Perry Barr and the wider region. This will be followed by a pre-recorded video containing drone footage of the construction works, including the ongoing steel installation.
Following this, the structural engineering design of the new West Stand will be explained, including how this is taking shape as a result of the steel installation works.
The stakeholder engagement and social value activities – which have been ongoing throughout the construction period – will then be covered, before the session concludes with a live Q&A session.
