Emerald Headingley Stadium redevelopment shortlisted in prestigious Yorkshire Property Awards

The redevelopment of Emerald Headingley Stadium into a world-class sporting venue has been shortlisted in Yorkshire’s leading property awards.

Led by Caddick Construction, the scheme saw G&H Building Services provide c£6 million of mechanical and electrical services.

A full design and installation of an array of building services was delivered in the rugby south and north stands, cricket south stand and old cricket pavilion.

The £45m project was a joint venture between Leeds Rhinos rugby league team and Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

It is one of just three schemes shortlisted in the Constructing Excellence category of the Yorkshire Property Awards.

Senior Contracts Manager at G&H Building Services, David Wilson, said: “Being shortlisted for such a prestigious award is very fitting for a project that has returned an iconic venue back to its former glory as a world-class international sports arena.

“It was an incredibly complex project that took nearly two years to deliver.

“The site was extremely busy with both rugby codes – Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie – playing and training on the pitch and Yorkshire County Cricket Club hosting a full domestic fixture list as well as two internationals.

“A temporary rugby stand was built and powered during this period and the scheme as a whole required a lot of expertise to deliver and co-ordinate with Caddick Construction given the vast scale of the work.

“As such, it is a project we are very proud of and are pleased it has been recognised by the judges.”

The awards ceremony is expected to take place in October at Rudding Park, Harrogate subject to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
