HIBERNIAN FC have signed up Procast to deliver a crowd-pleasing upgrade to the West Stand at their Easter Road stadium in Edinburgh.
The refurbishment will affect the hospitality area, which sits between the two tiers of the structure and it will commence this month – May, 2022 – with a tight completion date in July, prior to the start of the new football season.
Described as a “major investment”, the project will involve:
Due to the nature and scale of the project, Procast will have two site teams operating collaboratively within different levels of the West Stand, each working to a robust construction programme to ensure the new facilities are delivered on time for the forthcoming football season.
The group have undertaken a full procurement process to ensure all materials required can be delivered on time to suit the works programme.
Operationally, the project will be headed up by Contracts Manager Gary Baxter and commercially led by our Commercial Manager John Kane, who will be aided by Assistant Quantity Surveyor Beth Dougan and Buyer Jennifer Strain.
The end result of the project will see Hibs’ hospitality offering double from two “spaces” to four at different price points for supporters.
A Procast spokesman said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this exciting project to deliver refreshed and fantastically designed hospitality areas within the West Stand of Easter Road stadium for Hibernian Football Club as this fantastic and innovative club approach the celebration of their 150th year anniversary in 2025.
“All works are being carried out over the close season, so the whole club can enjoy the new facilities in the upcoming 2022/2023 season.
“As well as working in partnership with Hibernian FC, we will continue our great relationship with the team at 442 Design Ltd and our manufactured joinery partner BJM Design Ltd who both have excellent track records with projects of this scale.
“We as a business will ensure we deliver this refurbishment programme, on time, on budget and to the client and end users’ ultimate satisfaction.”
Hibernian FC Commercial Director Greg McEwan commented: “These state-of-the-art new spaces will vastly improve the match day experience for Hibernian supporters and we are looking forward to seeing this new and exciting project come to life.”< back
