Wembley was designed by architects HOK Sport and Foster and Partners with engineers Mott MacDonald, built by Multiplex and funded by Sport England, WNSL (Wembley National Stadium Limited), the Football Association, the Department for Culture Media and Sport and the London Development Agency.
It was the most expensive stadium ever built at a cost of £798 million and has the largest roof-covered seating capacity in the world.
Drytech were employed by Multiplex to design and build the external escalator voids with cold rolled load bearing profiles from Metsec. Each area had numerous architectural features.
Drytech also installed drywall partitions and ceilings in the back of house, kiosk, changing room areas.
The project was extremely challenging due to the number of other associated trades working in the same areas and particularly the material handling.
High level shaftwall above the kiosks proved difficult to build due to space limitations, whilst toilets and changing rooms required careful consideration due to the final finish tolerences
