The new Riverside Stand is the 9,000-seat main stand at Craven Cottage, alongside the River Thames. The building comprises a basement and 5 storey, 2 tier stand with events spaces, food court, restaurant, members’ club, boutique hotel, and a spa. All spaces are of a very high fit out standard.
Key Project Features
- The spa includes a roof top pool which overlooks the Thames
- Key aim for the project is to open up the stand from once-a-fortnight use (typical of a stadium) to 365 days a year use
- The River Thames is on the other side of the basement wall to the basement venue space
Core Five Added Value
- Innovative procurement approach which allowed the client to obtain early cost certainty on majority of the work, whilst retaining control of the fit out brief and quality
