Tricon serve up F&B designs for new Everton FC stadium

Everton Football Club plans to build a new 52,888 capacity stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on the banks of the River Mersey. The historic dock-site in North Liverpool is semi-derelict and regarded as a gateway to the city.

Having previously worked alongside the Club on plans for the catering facilities at the new stadium, Tricon Foodservice Consultants Ltd is now collaborating with contractor Laing O’Rourke to further develop and refine the designs.

The stadium’s F&B facilities will include several hospitality lounges, varied concessions and a ‘home-end’ destination. As is the trend with many modern stadia, it is intended that the venue will be used to host other non-match day events. With this in mind, the F&B facilities must also be suitable and accessible for concert, conference, exhibition and other secondary post-COVID-19 usage.

The stadium’s waterfront location has strongly influenced the design and planning of the development. The stunning brick, steel and glass stadium design takes its inspiration from the historic maritime and warehouse buildings nearby. Everton has received widespread support for its plans from local residents, business leaders as well as local and national politicians. The Club’s stadium development is expected to have a transformational impact on the Liverpool City Region and the Northern Powerhouse by delivering a £1.3bn boost to the economy, creating more than 15,000 jobs, attracting 1.4m visitors annually and generating £237m of societal value.

Tricon’s Project Director, Jason Farrer who led the design work at Bramley-Moore Dock, is delighted to be working on another World-class stadium development. He said, “We have worked extensively in the stadia sector and are pleased to bring our expertise and unique skill-set to this exciting new project. The Bramley-Moore Dock location, within Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, means extreme care and attention to detail has been built into the plans at all levels of the development to meet planning approval. That has included the F&B facilities.

“Delivering catering facilities for multiple usage is a concept we’re very familiar with, and together with the Club, contractor and architects, we’re working to deliver something befitting to this unique scheme.”

More details of Tricon’s involvement in this project will follow in due course.
