New Family Stand for Dover Athletic Football Club
November saw the completion of the new Family Stand at Dover Athletic Football Club.
The 500 seat spectators stand, including a specially designed area for disabled supporters, also incorporates new facilities for players and officials; changing rooms, a dedicated first aid room and Manager’s office have been developed within the lower ground floor area, beneath the tiered seating, with the incorporated tower providing WC facilities for fans and a control room to monitor matches.
Designed in conjunction with modular build specialists Eurokit, and structural engineers TZG, the stand is innovative in its design and construction technique, the vast structural glulam timber frame was designed and built in ‘kit’ form, with the principal structure constructed off-site. This build method has resulted in the impressive structure completed in a fraction of the time a more traditional build would have taken, allowing the stand to be available to the club in readiness for their season.
