ISG’s redevelopment of the Compton and Edrich stands at the Home of Cricket, Lord’s, has been featured in a New Steel Construction project profile. The scheme is part of Marylebone Cricket Club’s ongoing master plan for Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, UK, and ISG will erect two new three-tiered stands, positioned either side of the state-of-the-art JP Morgan Media Centre, which will provide 2,500 additional seats and bring capacity up to a total of 31,000. The reimagined stands will provide significantly enhanced facilities for cricket fans, including transformed views and increased accessibility and amenities – such as dining facilities, 12 food and beverage outlets and two hospitality restaurants.

The new stands also overlook the Nursery Ground, which is positioned adjacent to the main Lord’s pitch.

Main contractor ISG began work on site during August 2019. As well as demolition and groundworks, the first phase also includes the erection of the main steel frames of the stands along with precast floor and terrace units.

Phase two includes blockwork installation, dry lining and M&E fit-out, while the final phase includes bar and restaurant fit-out, and the erection of the stand’s steel-framed roofs and the steel link bridge.

The steel roofs are architectural features that top the stands. Elliptically-shaped, the roofs are formed with a steel framework that supports a further timber frame and a canvas covering.

The bridge will link both stands at second tier level, allowing spectators to travel between the two hospitality areas. The bridge will be 40m-long × 3.5m-wide and supported on a single row of 7.5m-high CHS columns.

Work on the Compton and Edrich stands is due for completion in Spring 2021.
