ISG Helps Hampden Get Ready

International construction services company ISG has been appointed by Hampden Park Limited in Glasgow to carry out £2.8m of improvement works on the North Stand Concourse at Scotland’s national stadium, located on the south-side of the city.                             

The 28-week project will see ISG construct a two-storey, 1,630 sq m extension to the existing North Stand Concourse to create improved spectator facilities and enhance accessibility within Hampden Park which host athletic during the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The extension has been designed to blend with the existing structure and provides an enlarged concourse area, with the scheme also delivering new catering facilities, new toilets and lifts.

The area created underneath the new build element will provide additional shelter for spectators. The under croft at the West Stand will also be converted to provide incremental secure storage space. Existing catering facilities within the East Stand will also be extended, providing additional counter space and increased service capacity for patrons.

ISG’s Andy Mallice, managing director – Scotland, commented: ‘‘ISG’s recent involvement in the staging of the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the construction of the iconic velodrome and delivery of the ‘overlay’ or temporary infrastructure requirements for all London 2012 venues, gives us unrivalled expertise delivering at the very highest levels of international sport.

“As a business, we have already forged a successful partnership with the team at Hampden Park in preparing the stadium for its role in London 2012, so we are uniquely placed in Scotland to assist the venue and deliver facilities that will be a lasting legacy for future generations visiting Scotland’s national stadium.”

In view of Hampden’s location in the heart of the Kings Park suburb of Glasgow, a key priority for both ISG and Hampden Park Limited is to maintain communication with the local residents. ISG’s customer care team will play a vital role in ensuring local residents are kept fully appraised of work in progress and detailing important developments throughout the duration of the project.
