EIC to revamp Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium

Alcester-based services provider EIC has won a £2m contract to install the mechanical and electrical services at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, which is set to be used as an Olympic training base.

The project involves the construction of a new spectators stand along the back straight of the running track which, when complete, will also accommodate office and gym facilities.

Working with main contractor Thomas Vale Construction, on behalf of Birmingham City Council, EIC’s contract includes installation of mechanical and electrical services including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, domestic water services, small power, lighting, CCTV and security to the new stand, offices and gym.

Much of the work on the stands has been completed ahead of the recent Samsung Diamond League meeting to be held in Birmingham, while the office fit out and gym elements are set for completion later this year.
