FP McCann is playing a major part in the construction by supplying the precast concrete terracing units onto which the spectator seating will be located. The contract to build the retail outlets and the stadium was awarded to infrastructure and construction company Robertson Central East early in 2019 by The Raeburn Place Foundation, the charity responsible for the development.FP McCann successfully tendered for the supply of precast concrete terracing and complementary structural units and has worked alongside the Robertson team throughout the build ensuring all product specifications and delivery schedules have been met.
In total, FP McCann has supplied in excess of 200 individual precast concrete units comprising mainly straight terrace seating units, base slabs, and double step blocks. Additional items include precast vomitory and tunnel walls, precast concrete stairs flights and landings and 200mm deep hollowcore flooring slabs. All products have been manufactured at the company’s specialist precast facility at Uddingston.
For further protection from the elements, all of the precast concrete products supplied have been waterproofed using the Sika Watertight Concrete System, an admixture designed to permanently seal the concrete against the penetration of water and other liquids.
David Coll, Robertson’s Project Manager says, “As principal contractor, it is very rewarding to be involved in such a prestigious scheme at the original home of Scottish international rugby. The structural contribution that FP McCann’s precast concrete products have made can be clearly seen around the stand.”
