Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park community construction milestone reached
Sheffield’s Olympic Legacy Park has reached a ‘major’ milestone with steelwork erections taking place.
Last week key figures behind the delivery of the project, including SGI, Legacy Park Ltd, GMI Construction, Whittam Cox Architects, Zerum Planning, Sheffield Eagles RLFC and Darnall FA marked the construction milestone with a steel signing ceremony.
GMI Construction is the main contractor for the stadium, which will include a three-storey, covered grandstand alongside 23,000 sq ft of business space and ancillary facilities.
SGI has also committed to providing three Padel Tennis courts within the grounds of the stadium. As well as becoming a permanent home to Sheffield Eagles Rugby League Football Club, the stadium will also be available for community use.
Mark Jackson, development director at SGI, said: “We are delighted to see works on the Community Stadium progressing well and on target, especially as we know how important it will be to the local community.”
The steelwork is due to be completed in early October and the entire project handed over by February 2022.
