This was an exciting project, as it saw Norstead Engineering working alongside its sister company Metnor Construction Ltd, on a design and build contract.
Mechanically, this was a 2 storey building with 2 plant rooms located on mezzanine floors at either end of the stand. One plant room housed the 3No boilers, which served all of the hot water and central heating needs to both floors including the many corporate boxes and lounge facilities on the 1st floor.
The other plant area was for the AHUs serving the ground floor Members bar, large office accommodation, and the changing areas for both home and away teams. Located within the 1st floor ceiling voids were the AHUs serving the kitchen and lounge bar areas on that floor. We also installed 2 No plunge pools to the home teams changing area.
Electrically, to cater for the increase in required load, an extension to the remote section board had to be carried out, and from there a new supply to the West stand was installed.
In addition to all of the usual lighting and small power requirements to the internal areas, Which, in this case was to a very high standard We were also charged with the complete replacement of the Pitch floodlighting, which alongside messers Philips lighting Ltd who carried out the design, was a great success and vast improvement to the clubs old system and fittings.
