CIAT Awards Victory – 2nd Year Running!
Up against strong competition, our comparatively modest football stand development at Dover Athletic Football Club has been awarded the runner up prize of ‘Highly Commended’ at the CIAT AT Awards 2017 for Excellence in Architectural Technology.
‘The Family Stand’ at Dover Athletic Football Club, designed by Associate and Senior Technologist Lee Waters, and was up against six other outstanding schemes vying for this prestigious prize.
This structure takes kit-build to new level – a 500-seat capacity spectators’ stand designed specifically to fit this narrow site, manufactured in Europe and erected at the Club’s Crabble Athletic Ground in Dover, Kent, in just 16 weeks.
The impressive cantilevered seating area provides sheltered yet panoramic views for match-goers in a family-friendly environment.
The new facilities provide players’ and officials’ changing rooms, medical room, laundry, manager’s office, spectators’ WCs, control tower and dedicated elevated viewing area for disabled spectators, all within a pre-fabricated structure on a minimal footprint.
The awards event was attended by Lee Waters and junior technology, Luke Remmington, and held on 15th September 2017 at the unique Village Underground venue in Shoreditch – a fantastic and perfect venue to showcase and champion innovative design.
