Creagh win big at the Concrete Society Awards
Creagh Concrete Products Ltd. won an award at the recent Concrete Society Award’s for the company’s involvement at Lord’s 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 company’s Toome factory were delivered to Lord’s 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 officials’ facility has been added that exceeds ICC and ECB standards and make Lord’s a world leader in this area.
