DLC in final stages of Northampton Saints new stand completion
Darren Lee Construction are nearing the end of a one month erection programme set by one of our leading UK steel construction partners.
The construction of the new Northampton Saints stand is looking to be close to completion with follow on trades now being drafted in to complete the final stages to the project.
The new North Stand at Franklin’s Gardens represents a £5 million investment that will see the stadium remain as the pre-eminent dedicated club rugby facility within the United Kingdom.
The stand will include 1,900 seats, a new Members’ Bar on the ground floor, an enlarged hospitality suite, 10 executive boxes (compared to 21 at present), a state-of-the-art control room, TV studio and improved access and viewing areas for disabled supporters.
When it is completed, the North Stand will increase Franklin’s Gardens’ capacity from its current 13,591 to 15,500, thereby giving the Saints the ability to hold every regular season home game in Northampton, including possible Heineken Cup quarter finals.
