Steel supplier Severfield has won the contract for Everton’s new £500 stadium project at Bramley-Moore Dock.
The North Yorkshire-based group announced the deal in a trading update covering the five months to March 31. Severfield said its UK and Europe order book, at September 1, stood at a record £376m thanks to a significant amount of new work which it has secured over recent months, including the Premier League club’s new stadium.
Severfield described the Bramley-Moore Dock project as one of a number of “significant project wins” along with two large distribution facilities in the UK.
It said the record order book was illustrative of a “buoyant” market.
Severfield said that as of August 2021 it has been accredited as carbon neutral for its manufacturing and construction operations by the Carbon Trust.
A spokesperson said: “Operating in a sustainable manner is crucial to both the current and future success of the group. This is an important milestone in our journey towards net zero.”
Thirsk-based Severfield has a Bolton operation after it completed the £30m acquisition of Harry Peers & Co, a structural steelwork business within the nuclear, process industries and power generation sectors, in October 2019.
Last month, Everton staged a project commencement ceremony to mark the breaking of ground in the construction of the 52,888-capacity venue, which is set to open in 2024.
The Everton stadium project will create more than 15,000 jobs and is expected to attract 1.4 million visitors to the city of Liverpool. The project is also set to contribute an estimated £1.3bn to the UK economy.
Everton was officially cleared to begin work on the stadium in March after its planning application received Government approval. Liverpool City Council’s Planning Committee unanimously approved the plans on February 23.
