Laing O’Rourke to Start Work on Everton Stadium in July End
Laing O’Rourke will begin the first phase of construction of Everton’s new 52,888 capacity stadium on 26 July. The announcement came as Everton confirmed it will take possession of the Bramley-Moore Dock site, part of Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, on 26 July, allowing Laing O’Rourke to immediately begin the first phase of the project on that date.
The first phase of the development will be the enabling works to prepare the dock site in readiness for the build. Work will include the repair and preservation of the Grade II listed dock wall, stabilising of the hydraulic tower located on the site, the development of welfare facilities for Laing O’Rourke construction staff, the preparation for demolition of existing non-listed structures, and raking of the dock floor. Pipework will also be installed that will be used for the infilling of the dock.
Once these works are completed, Laing O’Rourke will begin the process of infilling the dock.
