Ground broken for new stadium for Aberdeen FC

woensdag 6 juni 2018

McIntosh Plant Hire has started earthworks and ground remediation in preparation for the construction of the community sports hub and football training facilities. All is part of the new GBP 50 million Aberdeen FC stadium.
Aberdeen’s ambitious plans for the new 20,000-seater stadium and training facilities were given the green light by Aberdeen City Council in January after a series of delays due to objections.


McIntosh, a local firm, will prepare the site, much of which was formerly used as landfill, to allow construction to begin later this summer. Phase one, valued at around GBP 10 million, will include the construction of the training pavilion, groundsman’s accommodation, three professional training pitches, two 3G pitches and two grass pitches.
‘The commitment by AFC to providing much-needed space and facilities for the community makes the whole project even more compelling and something we are proud to be part of,’ Bert McIntosh said. ‘We hope to get work under way as soon as possible and will be securing the site in the next few days.’

Aberdeen FC has issued tenders for various elements around the construction of phase one and has pledged to appoint local firms wherever possible. Contracts for the overall project are anticipated to safeguard or create around 150 jobs initially.

It is anticipated that the club will relocate to the new stadium – to the west of Aberdeen – from current ground Pittodrie in autumn 2019.
