Another major milestone was reached yesterday in the construction of our new home as the floodlight pylons were installed. Brentford FC will be moving to its new stadium at the end of the 2019/20 season and a Golden Bolt ceremony was held at the end of last month when the last steel beam was bolted into place – signifying that the build is structurally complete. The construction team are now adding the additional external steel work with floodlight pylons installed yesterday.
The 17,250-seater stadium and associated development commenced in Quarter Two of 2018 with the Club’s development partner – and new principal partner – EcoWorld London, and its stadium principal contractor Buckingham Construction Group Limited. The Brentford Community Stadium development is an important part of the wider regeneration of the area known as Brentford East. It will deliver a stadium together with more than 900 new homes, a new purpose-built location for Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, and a public square with shops and cafes.
Work is continuing around the stadium site with the steel work now complete. Cladding is being placed around the outside of the stadium while inside the bowl, there is preparation underway for the pitch to be installed over the summer. Internal fit-out is also underway and more news on the progress of our new home will follow soon.
