As the last round of County Championship matches get underway tomorrow (Wednesday September 23rd) in the domestic cricket season, construction firm BAM is playing a longer innings through to May.
The company has announced that work on Headingley's Carnegie Pavilion development, a dual-use facility for Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds Metropolitan University and part-financed by Yorkshire Forward, is on schedule for completion in that month. BAM is currently finishing the concrete frame which was so visible during the fourth Test Match, and is about to start steel works for the fourth floor in the next few weeks as well as progressing M&E (mechanical and electrical) works for the structure. The £21 million, 4000-square metre project peaks before Christmas with over 100 workers on site. It was designed by Will Alsop.
The club recently won its bid to stage the prestigious Test Match in July 2010 between Pakistan and Australia. This will be the first major match after the Carnegie Pavilion is opened.
Simon Sutcliffe, BAM's project manager, says, "Relationships with our two clients have been very positive and work is progressing to programme. We have even come up with a new idea for the stumps."
