Arsenal Youth Academy, London

Scope:

  • Extension of the existing Arsenal Youth Academy training ground.
  • Total 68 tonnes of steel installed.
  • Pre-fabricated steel staircases with cantilevered gallery area designed, manufactured and installed.
  • Ancon stainless steel braces installed.
  • Two-pack epoxy topcoat paintwork.

Challenges:

  • Existing building remained in constant use by Arsenal FC youth players throughout the project and so health and safety was paramount.
  • Very careful measurement and sensitive, close installation work as new steel had to interface with a delicate existing structure and materials.
  • Remedial work on existing structure.
