Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens

Design and construction of a new stadium for St Helens RFC.

The works to replace the century old Knowsley Road ground, included site clearance, demolition, remediation works, ecological surveys, archaeology drainage, substructure, superstructure, infrastructure and landscaping to public realm areas.

The North Stand has a capacity for 4,788 seated fans, and the South Stand is also a seated area with a capacity of 5,233; as well as being the main area for the club offices, media centre and function rooms.

The East Stand is a standing area holding 3,899 people. The West Stand has a capacity for 3,796, mainly standing, but does have 111 seats, bringing the total capacity of the stadium to around 18,000.

On the second floor of the South Stand are 12 executive boxes with fine views of the pitch. Each box holds up to 12 people.

The project also involved major civil engineering works to facilitate the creation of platforms for the stadium, pitch and retail store. An extensive cut and fill exercise was undertaken to establish platforms. The civils works also included remediation of contaminated ground, drainage installation and the formation of access roads and car parking.
