Design and construction of the Kingston Communications Stadium, Hull

This paper discusses the design and construction of the 25 000 seat Kingston Communications Stadium in Hull, which opened to the public in December 2002. The paper introduces the main architectural and structural concepts and outlines how some of the key constraints were dealt with. Particular emphasis is given to the design and construction of the west stand roof, as well as the dynamic modelling and analysis of the two-tier west stand.
