Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club is located in Fulham and is one London’s top sports venues.
Like every football club in the English Premier League, Chelsea are working hard to meet the needs of their disabled supporters. During the Summer of 2018 preparations were well underway at their West London home ground of Stamford Bridge to improve wheelchair access throughout the stadium and add over 200 new wheelchair user spectator locations. A major part of this work has been resurfacing the Lower West Stand, which runs the entire length of the pitch, as a step free area which is now suitable and practical for every Chelsea fan to use.
Terry White, Chelsea’s Special Projects Manager chose to use Ebema concrete paving on Buzon DPH5 height adjustable pedestals. The new paving was supplied and installed by UK company Alfresco Floors
The Buzon pedestal system is the oldest, the strongest and the most respected system on the market. Whenever there are exceptional client concerns about build quality, live load capabilities and life-long fault-free performance, it’s almost always the Buzon pedestal system that gets specified. Likewise, the long and faultless history Ebema have in the concrete paving market gives them a reputation that nobody would ever question – however demanding the install environment.
Chelsea stadium now has around 450sqm of 60mm thick Ebema Rockstone pavers, and the client is delighted. The paved area was installed ahead of schedule (at less than the nearest competing quote) and has been universally approved by staff and fans alike. Moreover, the government officials who monitor and approve disabled facilities in all the UK Premier League stadiums have signed off the new installation with flying colours.
