Shot showing the same view with no temporary stand at the end.
The stadium roof will be raised 10m and an extension, made of the same material, will extend inwards, covering the seats. Lights will be hung down below the walkway on the roof, facing towards the field of play. With regards to seating. the field of play is to be lowered by 5m. The stands through the ends of the stadium will be removed, while a permanent extension along either side of the field will be built. On WHU home games, a temporary stand is added to both ends of the field, as indicated by the images attached. The current facade will be removed and replaced by a glass material. This would be able to be retracted at either end to allow for airflow at a lower level where necessary. In order to accommodate the request for 100 extra boxes, two sets of suites are to be built at either end of the stadium. The pods are to be reused as a) ticketing booths, b) entertainment stations, with video games / exhibits set up, and c) as outdoor merchandise/food and drink/beer stations. With the retaining of the running track, the venue is perfectly suited for local sporting carnivals, such as school sport days. The design is also such that concerts and boxing events could be held there.
