Alexander Stadium

Project Description:

The project consists of the construction of a new back straight stand to the well known Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. As part of the new stand the stadium lighting was upgraded and a central control room built to deal with the increasing requirements of hosting international events such as the Diamond League Athletics meetings.

The void below the stand was fitted out to provide 2,000m2 office space and a 100-station gym with change rooms. VZDV was involved with the Cat A design for the offices as well as the Cat B design for UK Athletics who took occupation of halve of the office space.

The stand was handed over in June 2011 for the Diamond League meeting in July, with the office and gym fitout following in October 2011.
