The New Grandstand at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre

An additional stand was required at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre to provide covered seating for a further 5000 spectators. The structure comprises an in situ RC frame with a steel canopy. For aesthetic reasons, the design brief required the canopy to resemble that of the existing stand. A.J.J. Bartak, D.C. Kaye and T.J.
