Hampden Park North Stand concourse works progress
Hampden Park is progressing plans to erect a £2.8m extension to their existing North Stand Concourse work as part of preparatory works for the 2014 Commonwealth games.

The 28 week project will be overseen by construction services firm ISG and entails construction of a two storey, 1,630sq/m extension to provide improved spectator facilities and enhanced accessibility with new lifts, toilets, catering facilities and an enlarged concourse.

Andy Mallice, MD of ISG Scotland, said: “‘ISG’s recent involvement in the staging of the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the construction of the iconic velodrome and delivery of the ‘overlay’ or temporary infrastructure requirements for all London 2012 venues, gives us unrivalled expertise delivering at the very highest levels of international sport. 

“As a business, we have already forged a successful partnership with the team at Hampden Park in preparing the stadium for its role in London 2012, so we are uniquely placed in Scotland to assist as the venue continues its countdown to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games."

The new stand has been designed by Holmes Miller alongside the Waterman Group as structural engineer, It is scheduled to complete by May 2013.

Looks great. Will really lift the appearance of Somerville Drive from what's there at the moment.
