Demolition works underway as part of £40 million Headingley Stadium redevelopment
New photographs show the demolition of parts of Headingley’s iconic rugby and cricket stands ahead of G&H Building Services starting on-site.
The rugby South Stand and the combined rugby and cricket stand have now been razed to the ground by the main contractor, Caddick Construction.
The work reveals an open expanse with sight across both international sports pitches.
Caddick Construction appointed G&H Building Services in a £5 million contract to deliver the mechanical and electrical design and build as part of the £40 million redevelopment.
The scheme is a joint project between Yorkshire County Cricket Club, rugby league side Leeds Rhinos and rugby union side Yorkshire Carnegie.
Director at G&H Building Services, Andrew Hudson, said: “The demolition work helps us to picture what we are going to be working with and shows the scale of the project.
“We are currently working closely with the client to finalise the designs, drawings and selecting the products and equipment that will be used for the main plant.
“This work will allow us to be ready to start on-site in the South Stand in the first week in January.
“Once the redevelopment is completed, players, spectators and club staff will be able to enjoy new stands with state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical features.”
G&H Building Services will design and install full heating, domestic services, above ground drainage, gas supplies, ventilation, air conditioning and a building management system.
Lighting, power, fire alarms, security systems, AV, PA, CCTV, data and door access will also be carried out.
The services will be installed in both the spectator facing parts of the cricket and rugby stands including new banqueting and corporate suites as well as underneath where changing rooms, treatment areas and offices will be housed.
The new South Stand will have a 7,700 capacity with 2,200 being seated.
The new combined rugby and cricket stand will seat 4,200 for cricket with 3,800 seats facing the rugby pitch.
G&H Building Services is also carrying out a mechanical and electrical refurbishment of the old cricket pavilion situated to the east of the combined stand.
