Geotechnics, the leading site investigation specialists, were delighted to support Wrexham AFC in their ambitious redevelopment project. The club, owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, plans to build a new stand and improve the external areas of the stadium.
The Wrexham AFC ground investigation set out to analyse the soil and water conditions at the sites in early 2023, providing reliable data and recommendations for the construction design. The investigation aimed to ensure the highest standards of safety and quality for the project, which would transform the Kop Stand into a modern and attractive facility.
The new stand would accommodate 5500 spectators, with 5000 seats for general admission and 500 seats for corporate guests. The design of the stand would pay tribute to Wrexham's coal mining heritage, a theme that would be echoed in the surrounding public spaces.
The concourse area of the stand would also function as a versatile venue for events on non-matchdays, such as concerts, exhibitions and conferences. This would fill a gap in the local market and create more economic opportunities and visibility for the city.
