Buckingham Contracting Group is set to deliver Nottingham Forest FC’s new stand and stadium revamp. The £100-million project could go under construction before the summer. A Construction Enquirer report.
The club aims to start the £100-million redevelopment scheme at the end of this season, making the City Ground the largest stadium in the East Midlands.
Plans include building a new Peter Taylor Stand (south) and improvements to all remaining sides: the Trentside area, Brian Clough and Bridgford Stands.
The new three-tiered stand will include a museum, new club shop and a range of hospitality lounge facilities. When complete, the City Ground’s capacity will reach 38,000.
The club unveiled the stadium plan, drawn up by architect Benoy, after an agreement with the City Council for an extended lease on the City Ground.
The project is expected to complete in July 2021. However, deadlines depend on planning proceedings. Nottingham Forest have filed their application in December of 2019.
