The IStructE QLD Committee invites you to join us as we hear Spencer Robinson, Technical Director at Mott MacDonald, discuss the redevelopment of the Compton and Edrich Stands at Lord's Cricket Stadium.
Often referred to as the cathedral of cricket, Lord’s is the spiritual, and administrative home of cricket with a long and rich history and heritage.
The primary aims of the design were to develop an integrated engineering solution that complimented the client and architectural vision to create open, flexile spaces for a fantastic spectator experience.
The presentation describes how the structural solutions proposed fulfilled these requirements whilst also navigating the constraints of a heavily congested site and a demanding construction programme.
