Watford Football Club
A major gas infrastructure to support a redevelopment at Watford Football Club
The alteration and upgrading of the existing gas service meter and outlet pipework in advance of demolition work. This had to be completed with minimal disruption to the football ground, as gas demand was still required to serve the other parts of the stadium, which remained fully operational.
Construction work on the new stand was undertaken in two phases and initially required significant gas infrastructure work to ensure that the club’s new changing facilities (located in the stand) would be ready for the start of the season. Phase two increased seating capacity at the club from 17,500 to 21,000 and involved connecting to the new outlet pipework and feeding gas to the new changing rooms via above ground steel pipework.
Gas infrastructure design for the project was undertaken by Siteworks’ engineers, who have a strong track record of delivering football stadia projects.
The project was completed to schedule and in time for the official opening of the new stadium by Sir Elton John, who is the club’s Honorary Life President.
