New home: Everton Football Club is planning a 52,000-seat stadium
Everton Football Club has drafted in Laing O’Rourke to build its new £500million stadium.
Designs for the 52,000-seat venue on Bramley-Moore Dock on Liverpool’s northern waterfront, were unveiled last summer.
Work will start this year, subject to planning consent, and is expected to take three years.
The proposed brick, steel and glass design is inspired by the historic docklands nearby, which are part of a Unesco world heritage site.
It features four huge stands, including a home end for 13,000 Everton fans, and has been billed as a major regeneration project for north Liverpool.
