Project Principals and Objectives
In July 2014 Ryebridge was originally contracted by THFC to undertake a 12 week project valued at £500k with a brief to reduce the existing level of the new stadium site by 1m. By June 2016 the level of Ryebridge’s involvement in the overall project had increased to in excess of £12m as Ryebridge was appointed Principal Contractor.
The washable inert material (ballast) was washed and screened into four different stockpiles. Sand, 10mm shingle, 20mm shingle, 40mm shingle and silt. The 40mm shingle was then crushed and screened once more. The only waste product was the silt.
Weekly progress meetings were held in the stadium board room and Ryebridge played an important part in assisting THFC surveyors with progress reports and sub-contractor progress on site. The site was registered with the Considerate Contractors Scheme (CCS) and received a good report when inspected by the CCS representative. A daily report was compiled by the Ryebridge site manager and sent to Ryebridge senior management and THFC project team. The advanced stadium works managed by Ryebridge won a gold award at the 2016 Rospa Awards at the Excel, London.
Working closely with Haringey Council’s highways authority Ryebridge installed storm drainage outfalls across the main high road into the Moselle culvert and excavated numerous trial holes in the footpaths and roads around the stadium for existing services identification to assist the design team.
As THFC were still using the existing stadium for home football matches Ryebridge ensured that the works on site did not interfere with the day by day operations of the stadium and worked closely with the stadium management and security teams. During the closed season Ryebridge managed to ensure critical works were completed and the area around the stadium reinstated before the football season commenced.
High profile buildings adjacent to the new stadium site were demolished by Ryebridge and our help with the initial enabling works helped to get the stadium project up to speed.
In January 2016 Ryebridge successfully handed the running of the site to Mace and continued managing satellite sites within half a mile of the stadium which were predominantly used as a base for the ongoing washing of excavated ballast and batching of concrete from a Tarmac operated batching plant.
