Lords Cricket Ground
Barretts of Aspley
In 2021 AJN completed the supply of around 150 tonnes of steel to leading structural steelwork and balcony specialists, Barretts of Aspley, for the redevelopment and construction of the Edrich and Compton Stands at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The majority of the steel, comprising a range flat bars, circular hollow sections and angles, was used for the bulk of the balustrades, handrails and staircases at the new three-tier stands.
The redevelopment – which offers an additional 2,600 seats and increases the Ground’s capacity to 31,600 – is the Club’s largest to date and is an integral part of the Marylebone Cricket Club’s (MCC) Masterplan to revitalise ‘The Home of Cricket’.
The new stands feature a connecting walkway overlooking the Nursery Ground and include two premium hospitality restaurants, 12 food and drink units and wheelchair enclosures and amenity seating on all levels.
