Swansea City Stadium
Officially opened to fans in South Wales in July 2005 The Swansea City AFC Swansea.com Stadium some years later defects began to appear which inevitably led to further problems both with aesthetically and from the point of new of corrosion.
The stadium’s refurbishment was in the making for some time, starting with initial contact with the original suppliers to understand how this project would be addressed and how the processes and procedures would integrate with the day to day running of the stadium. Following this initial review, Wardle Painters Ltd was officially awarded the project contract in Autumn 2020 to refurbish all four stands.
Starting with an initial clean of the entire structure to remove algae and built-up grime, Wardle Painters Ltd was responsible for surface preparation and application of the protective coating system. It was determined that some areas required intense surface preparation which consequently meant specialist procedures and precautions had to be undertaken, meaning the Wardle Painters Ltd team needed to hold the necessary accreditations to carry this aspect of the works safely.
Starting in September 2020, the project took just 11 months to complete.
Gordon David from Swansea City FC: “Swansea.com Stadium is a home away from home for our loyal Swansea City fans and it was important that we were able to turn to Wardle Painters Ltd to refurbish the external steelwork. We’re thrilled with the results and it’s fantastic to see the stadium look as good as new.”
