I expect the groundsman will be worrying about whether the grass will grow in the shade!

Excellent video.
Good to see [at c.3.30] a large barge being moored alongside. Presumably full of apologies from those who were adament that the thing would never get off the ground.

The project manager on the video seems a most impressive bloke.
A challenging, multi-facetted job. Wonder what he's doing when it's finished.
I see the PM's name is Andrew Macintosh.
Surely not another bit of nepotism.👺😄

At least we have one positive with this development. Been said a few times, just would like it bumped back to the 1st page.

This was the dates given to  FST
RIVERSIDE STAND PROGRESS
Whilst supporters can see progress of the Riverside Stand demolition progressing match by match, many have requested an update on next steps. The Trust asked for an overview of the main phases of the project and the Club provided the following summary with estimated dates. These dates were recently discussed with local residents at an open information session.
Phased demolition of old stand – underway, completion December 2019
New river wall and walkway piling – underway, completion early 2020
Putney Stand substructures and piling – underway
Putney Stand steel erection – commences November 2019
Basement excavation (18,000 m3) – commences January 2020
Basement piling – February 2020 to March 2020
River deck construction – November 2019 to February 2020
Steel erection – April 2020 to October 2020
Internal mechanical / electrical works – April 2020 to March 2021
Glazing – commences May 2020
Pre-cast concrete terracing – June 2020 to October 2020
Steel roof trusses lifted in – July 2020 to October 2020
Fit out – March 2020 to July 2021


Based on this, we're months and months behind!

I am pretty sure we are a month (or two) from starting electrical works, glazing or pre-cast concrete terracing. So we are a least six months behind, but the fit-out in planned to take 9 months which could be shortened if required.

Wouldn't surprise me if the stand opened with a fair few of the internals still to do.  If the basics are there to start bringing in revenue, then a couple of bars or lounges unfinished won't stop it.

The current plan is aiming that way, get the seats and facilities for them sorted and the fit out behind the stand comes after.

With us playing at home tomorrow, at least we should be able to see more progress here.

Fitting out beyond a shell depends also on which restaurants etc. are taking tenancies, which is another schedule liable to have been delayed.

Why?

Like most clubs we use artificial light rigs that can be moved around the pitch

A couple of shots of the rebuild during last nights full recording of the match by Sky when the ball was kicked into the stand and although dark it appeared that good progress had been made since the last photos appeared on this site.

Hopefully the lockdown will not hinder things too much.

There might be a way of them opening the stand for supporters whilst still working on the pier or swimming pool etc

From what I saw of the stand on Monday, not a lot more has happened over the last couple of weeks?

The way they were talking in the most recent video we should start seeing the stand fly up.They may have struggled recently with the high winds and not being able to use the cranes could be the excuse.
