Arrow was delighted to be selected to deliver the industrial door package for this major redevelopment at Headingley Stadium.
The £44m project included a new rugby South Stand and a replacement for the 90-year-old joint rugby and cricket ground stand that overlooked both sites of the iconic sporting complex.
The newly completed combined stand had 4,200 seats for cricket and 3,800 facing the rugby pitch. The new South Stand for the rugby ground increased the capacity to 7,700 with 2,200 seats.
Arrow Industrial was chosen to work with Caddick Construction and DLA Architecture to design manufacture and install 92 steel doors at Headingley Stadium.
Prior to the manufacturing process, design meetings took place with the main contractor, architect and customer to review the specific requirements of the brief. Due to the scale of the project, it was imperative to ensure that each door set was designed correctly for each location and to take into consideration any special ironmongery arrangements.
Another key requirement was that the doors needed to be durable and meet building regulations around thermal and fire ratings as well as ensure safety for the stadium’s staff and the public.
The logistics of the delivery and programme were also important factors, as this continued to be a fully operational stadium, we had to coordinate our installation whilst Rugby, County and Test Cricket continued to be played.
