The 28-week project sees ISG construct a two-storey, 1,630 sq m extension to the existing North Stand Concourse to create improved spectator facilities and enhance accessibility within Hampden Park. The extension to Scotland’s national stadium has been designed to blend with the existing structure and provides an enlarged concourse area, with the scheme also delivering new catering facilities, new toilets and lifts.
The area created underneath the new-build element will provide additional shelter for spectators. The undercroft at the West Stand will also be converted to provide incremental secure storage space. Catering facilities within the East Stand will also be expanded.
ISG managing director for Scotland, Andy Mallice, 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, delivering facilities that will be a lasting legacy for future generations visiting Scotland’s national stadium.”
