Manchester United Quadrant Development
This prestigious development involves the construction of the north-east and north-west quadrants – unifying the stadium by reinforcing the `bowl’ concept on the upper seating decks and linking the main east stand to the north and west stands by a high quality facade.
The design of the quadrants introduces major vertical circulation and this has been resolved by of highly modelled stair towers placed centrally in the quadrant creating an iconic image for the stadium. The structural system minimises the impact of the roof steel and this is achieved by creating a structural web from the stair tower to carry the quadrant roof.
The seating decks themselves provide additional capacity of 8,000 spectators, bringing the football stadium capacity to 76,000. Below the seating decks are 3 levels of hospitality providing catering for 2500. Work started on site in April 2005, the first phase was completed at the end of July with the project overall completion by July 2006.
