Construction Case Study
Reducing noise at the 'Big Bank' Stadium, St James Park
Exeter City Football Club is in the process of redeveloping their St James Park ground with a new spectator stand, and a student housing scheme on adjoining land behind the grandstand (known locally as the 'Big Bank'). With this major new initiative, the Club plans to significantly improve its spectator facilities, and develop up to 336 purpose-built student bedrooms and studio apartments.
Given that the site is situated in a busy part of Exeter City Centre and is within close proximity to a number of concerned neighbours and residents, the contractors were conscious that it was essential to reduce noise exposure during the works as much as possible.
