New images have been released illustrating how Manchester City FC’s Etihad Stadium will look once the 6,000-seat stadium expansion – designed by Populous – has been completed. City gained planning permission for the expansion back in February and engineering firm Laing O’Rourke is overseeing the construction.
An integrated Laing O’Rourke Group team is carrying out the expansion, with work having commenced at the beginning of April. Interesting aspects of the new pictures include versatile signage on the stadium facades and interiors.
The first phase of construction will be completed in time for the 2015-16 season and will see the South Stand expanded by c.6,000 seats. The second phase will see development of the North Stand to complete the transformation.
