Description: Anfield

Ever since the club decided to stay at Anfield in 2013, Liverpool FC had been working on a feasible expansion plan. Main grandstand was the first to grow, as designed by KSS Group. Existing sections are to be retained, but merged with massive new facilities to be built behind the stand, under one new roof.

The new, enlarged main stand will hold over 20,000 people, representing an increase of 8,300-8,500 from the starting point. Spread across three tiers (9,300 / 3,100 / 7,900), the seats will provide new facilities for corporate clients, who will be crucial in recovering investment cost of £75 million (115m including secondary costs).

Enabling works began in June 2014, when demolition of houses behind the main stand was launched. By December 2014 the site was cleared and foundation works started. In March 2015 the very first steel prefabs were installed and progress proved to be rapid from that point onwards. Overall the entire stand is to be delivered in July 2016.

The project runs with a challenge of not intruding football fans from entering the main stand. Nearly all of the construction (including mounting of the new roof) will go on from behind the stand and above it, enabling constant use.
