Structural steel group Severfield reports an upturn in business, with six new contract awards totalling £43m in value.
Severfield will be structural steelwork contractor to main contractor Carillion on the project to expand the Main Stand at Liverpool Football Club’s Anfield Stadium. Work on the project, which will add approximately 8,500 seats to the stand and increase the overall capacity of the stadium to 54,000, is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2016.
In addition to this, Severfield has won steelwork contracts for three commercial office developments in London, a major distribution centre in the Midlands, and a waste-to-energy incinerator in Dublin.

It continues the momentum we've established in recent months, and all of these new contracts are in sectors where we have a strong market share or are seeing positive future trends. We are thrilled to be working for Carillion on such a high profile project as Anfield, especially as stadia is a sector where we have a demonstrable track record."
