Emerald Headingley Stadium

Grandstand Tensile Fabric Roof Canopy

Base Structures were extremely proud to be working together with Caddick Construction on the plans to transform the Emerald Headingley Cricket Ground.

Much has changed since the crowds poured in to watch the first Test at this truly iconic and world-famous sporting venue in 1899. The addition of the new 4,300 seater main stand will make Headingley one of the finest cricket venues in the world.

Base were tasked with the design, manufacture and install of the fabric roof and bespoke gutter system on the new Emerald main stand, the centrepiece of the Headingley redevelopment project.

 

Emerald Headingley Stadium

The cantilever stadium roof comprises of ten bays, each of which is covered by Ferrari’s high performance membrane, TX30-II, which benefits from a 30 year lifespan.

Fabric installations can be a tricky game at times due to inclement weather, especially at height and when conducted solely by Rope Access Technicians. However, our installation was unhampered and benefitted by the long, hot and settled summer weather. It was a touch too warm at times up there…due to the fabric glare, temperatures peaked at 48°C!
