Creagh Concrete Products Ltd. won an award at the recent Concrete Society Awardís for the companyís involvement at Lordís Cricket Ground, London. The project focused on the new Warner Stand and involved the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of precast concrete terracing, step blocks, vomitary walls and staircases.

The project took a total of 12 weeks for Creagh Concrete Products Ltd to complete from start to finish; with 448 pieces in total. A total of 46 loads from the companyís Toome factory were delivered to Lordís Cricket Grounds in London, comprising just over 1,100 tonnes.

The original Warner Stand was completed in 1958 and was no longer fit for purpose. In contrast, the new stand has 2,656 seats, and combines outstanding facilities with innovative architecture. It incorporates two tiers of seating on a steeper gradient than the current stand, thus greatly improving sightlines; while a new match-control and match officialsí facility has been added that exceeds ICC and ECB standards and make Lordís a world leader in this area.
