Steel is on site

Posted by Andy Walsh, General Manager FC United of Manchester on Wednesday 19 February 2014
We are now a quarter of the way through our building programme in Moston. Despite the heavy rain during most of 2014 we’re very pleased that work continues in line with the build timetable which has not been easy given the conditions on site. As with any building work we have issues and problems to deal with but we are continuing to plough through these and we remain on target.

The preliminary preparation works to both the stadium pitch and the community pitches is complete. In the light of how many postponements we have suffered recently we are now re-visiting our pitch designs and working hard with our pitch consultant and contractor to investigate alternative design solutions in an effort to try and ensure we have the optimum drainage solution for the pitches within the budget we have available.



Piling works were completed in January and we are approximately 50% of the way through laying the foundations to the Main (south) stand. Steel work for the main stand is on site this week and has started to go up. The pre-cast concrete terrace units are to follow soon after. This is when we will start to see progress above ground and the body of our new ground starting to take shape.



We visited our steel fabricator at his yard in Lancaster last week to check on progress of the re-modelling of the former Northwich Victoria stadium stands which were in part salvaged from their original ground the Drill Field which dates back to 1875. Work on refabricating the Northwich Vics steelwork to fit our design is progressing well and this will form the basis for the structure of our east (St Marys Road) terrace.



A team of hardy volunteers gave their time recently to collecting and moving into storage a donation of perfectly fine pre-loved office furniture which will fit out our stadium office and classroom as well as saving us a few quid in the process. Many thanks to the lads who gave up their time on this. In this vein we are looking to do a call to volunteers to help assist the stadium team with the project - an announcement will be made through the the usual forums soon.

Behind the scenes the stadium team are also working hard at researching and putting the final details together of items such as the kitchen layout, beer cellar design, bar fit out, communications room requirements, the travel plan, etc. etc. Items which are not necessarily earth shatteringly exciting but all issues we need to get right so we have the best possible stadium we can.
