Ashton Gate Stadium – Phase 3 Stand

J & D Pierce (Contracts) Ltd. were awarded the circa 1800t structural steelwork package for phase 3 of Bristol City FC’s stadium redevelopment at Ashton Gate. The stand has triangular shaped truss spanning 108m supported at each end of the stand and in turn the truss is utilised to support the large span roof members. The whole methodology of construction and safe installation of the structure was developed by J & D Pierce’s own design and technical advisors, in conjunction with the main contractor, McLaughlin & Harvey and structural consultants, Jacobs. An exceptional performance was achieved on this contract, with the entire roof structure assembly being lifted and fixed into place within a 23-hour timeframe, in a safe, controlled system of work.
