Complete Regeneration were contracted by Laing O’Rouke to complete the internal demolition works on the Colin Bell Stand at the Etihad Stadium.
The works comprised of a full soft strip followed by demolition of concrete staircases, floors and walls to form the new Tunnel Club and team changing areas. Working over 4 different levels up to 12 metres below ground floor level made the egress of materials extremely challenging.
Methods of demolition included remote controlled Brokks and Track Saws as well as traditional hand demolition. The works were precisely phased and programmed over a 10-month period ensuring the stadium and all its facilities, including the kitchen could trade at all times and Premier League and Champions League matches could be played as scheduled.
