RUFC - Stadium progressing

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart says that now the process of demolition has started at the Old Guest and Chrimes site it should show the people of Rotherham that progress on the new stadium is gathering pace.

Speaking to the Official Site earlier this week, Mr Stewart said, 'The site that is being cleared is the additional land that was purchased to provide us with the additional flexibility for future amenities and access to and from the new stadium development site.`

Speaking to Michael Upton of the The Advertiser, Ron Hull the Chairman of the demolition company said, 'As a Millers fan myself I know just how pleased everyone will be that preparation work is starting to happen on the ground.`

Taking down a steel frame warehouse, recently used for storing furniture, is the first phase of the project and is expected to take between four and five weeks and Tony Stewart said, 'It`s a huge operation but when the site is cleared it will give us the platform to ensure we have the best facilities possible for when we move into our new stadium in 2012.`

Gleeds Nottingham have been appointed as construction consultants of the stadium project and the firm`s managing partner, Stuart Senior said, 'Every project we undertake has unique aspects which make our role interesting and this one is no different and one of our top concerns is public safety as the site is bordered by both a railway line and the River Don, which makes access a concern. We have assembled a project team who are specialists at dealing with such challenges and it is really encouraging to see that progress is being made.

'By 2012 the club will have a fantastic new stadium to call home.`

The whole operation is also going to be very 'green` with a spokesman from Ron Hull Demolition saying that almost everything being removed from the site will be recycled saying that the steel, timber and other materials will go to the recycling centre in town.
