LFC Main Stand Expansion on Target

Work is progressing well to make Liverpool Football Club’s Main Stand one of the largest all-seater single stands in Europe’s top divisions.

Stand expansion began on 5 January and is due to be completed during the 2016-17 season. The redevelopment work adds 8,500 extra seats, bringing Anfield’s capacity to around 54,000. Careful project planning and site management has been required to ensure the stadium remains fully functional throughout the construction period.

Virtual-Planit’s visualisation above and camera-matched animation below illustrate how the stadium will look following stand expansion. A time-lapse video shows progression of construction on site to date. This, along with recent site photos, give an indication of the scale of the undertaking to date.

Planit are the Project Masterplanners and Landscape Architects, and undertook the associated Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment. Visualisations and camera-matched animations were produced by our internal team, Virtual Planit. Carillion are the Main Contractor, working with KSS (Architect), Jacobs (Structural Engineer) and EC Harris (Project Manager). Expansion of Anfield’s Main Stand forms part of a wider Spatial Regeneration Framework, produced in collaboration with Turleys, and follows our work to restore Stanley Park.
