Dock Filling for the New Everton Stadium Project at Bramley Moore Dock, Liverpool
Andy Baynton – Principal Engineer, Laing O’Rourke
Bramley Moore Dock was opened in 1848 and became a major part of the Port of Liverpool as the dock system was gradually extended to the north of the city. By the 1980’s, the area went into decline and remained as such until recently with only part of the surrounding land being used by a dredging company and the dock itself being used as a mooring for tugs operating out in the port.
In 2021, Everton Football Club gained planning permission to build a 52,888-seat capacity stadium on what would become land reclaimed by infilling of the dock.
This presentation aims to provide an overview of the operation including preparation works, filling, compacting and testing in order to allow follow on works to commence for construction of the new stadium.
Refreshments available from 17:30hrs, with Kendal’s Bar open post-event for networking opportunities.
