New Stand: Ongoing work (updated)

Recommended Posts

gjcc

The old stand is kind of like the wife in a marriage who you have fond memories of but the love has fizzled out and she's not the oil painting she once was. The new main stand will be the 23 year old hot, filthy secretary who's about to take her place lol

Have to balance it up with whilst the wife is no oil painting, the 23 year old will have thousands more blokes(an a good few women) in her.

Maine road / Highbury / Upton Park / Sunderlands old ground (I forget the name) where no longer fit for purpose and shinny new stadiums replaced them. No one shed a tear....Aye sure.

 

The old stand is part of our history and something that needs replaced but that doesn't mean fans don't have memories of it. I sat there for the Graham Weir derby nearly ended up on top of the dug out when the equaliser went in...there's a great memory for me.

 

You are either on the wind up. Not a hearts fan or you just don't get football.

or possibly i just have my own opinion

 

Roker Park for your info is what it was called.

FFS its bricks and corrugated steel and asbestos and its a horrible place to watch football and very probably it was an accident waiting to happen. Its a disgrace we kept it for so long and I wont be shedding any tears like some of you girls.

 

Say good bye to it. A building aye ? FFS.

You are just taking a swing at everything to do with the new stand though, you can see why he would come to that conclusion, no?

 

First you are having a go at folk for feel sentimental about their happy memories of the old stand. Then it's the asbestos and look of the old stand. Finally you then go for the architect.

 

It makes it look like you are just pissed off about the whole thing.

I haven't taken a swing at the new stand in any way, shape or form. I welcome the day. I won't be shedding a tear for the old stand. Just my stance on it. Get over it.

 

The architect once went behind a managers back to try and get him sacked. Thats a documented fact.

 

I just don't get the gushing faux sentiment over a dilapidated dinosaur of a building which has reached the end of its useful life, a bit like yourself

Hearts have an architect with substantial knowledge. Architect plus Project Manager is pretty normal way to run projects.

 

All sounds okay.

Yip, it's not rocket science. Schedule and report. There will be delays somewhere along the line, how you manage that is of course key but with the right people it should be easily done.

I can't wait to see Tynecastle completed; four steep stands towering over the pitch. It will look fantastic, our spiritual home, snuggled deep in the heart of our community, our streets, our pubs and our transport, a modern stadium surrounded by oldie-worldie tenements, unlike those soulless retail park stadia on the edge of nowhere with only Homebase and Frankie and Bennys to keep them company.

 

 

From the plans, ours seems like two buildings. One, the stand itself, taking us up to 20,000, the other part at the front, a modern steel and glass block giving us all the space and facilities we require.

 

 

A new stand, a bigger stand, a safe stand, a smarter stand, bigger capacity, higher attendances, proper facilities and money-spinning corporate and banqueting suites.

 

 

Add to that, the world-class facilities at Riccarton and the 'sell' to players of working and living in Edinburgh, we really will have everything we need.

Come on bud, if someone is clearly at it on a thread surely people are goin to respond? Unless we put certain punters on a collective ignore then it's always gonny happen.

And if I can just add, in the interests of fairness, that I've no clue what Mars plastic does for a living but I'm sure he's very competent at it. I'm just sure that the people in charge know what they're doing, and I don't see the need to call their practices 'complete madness'.

It's going be exciting seeing it all develop, especially in the build up to our first home game with it. Throw in a tunnel and dugout and this could be not far off what the completed Tynecastle will be like:

If it's design and build a main contractor will be appointed to control/procure everything. If it's traditional build, will be run by the client and a project manager.

 

That simple? No?

I sit in the Wheatfield, and since this stand was announced, I continually find my eye wandering towards the height of the floodlights on either stand behind the goals (maybe that says a lot about the fare on the park to be honest!). But see when you imagine the truss that's goin to sit between those floodlights? It's such an increase in height from the current main stand it's unreal.

 

Tynie is goin to be a boxed in cauldron when it's finished. Acoustically it's goin to be very very impressive. I cannot ****ing wait.

Is the new Boroughmuit High D&B? No. Is Edinburgh Cooncil looking after the build in conjunction with a project manager? No.

 

Have they employed O'Hare McGovern to build the school? Aye.

I remember back in the day sitting watching Hearts play, in the back row of the old stand behind the Directors box with Roald Jensen.

If he was injured he would always sit up at the back to watch the game, he was really good company and always talked up Hearts.

So from that point of view I will miss the old stand, but can't wait to see the completed stadium.

Bet there are millions of wee stories like this. We will all have fond memories of the auld main stand, but there's no denying we are moving into a massively exciting phase in our history.

 

Sad to see it go? Nah, but that doesnae mean we can't enjoy the special memories we have of the auld girl!

I still recall being in the old stand right behind the Hibs dug out when Weir smashed in that goal  in the 4-4 game.

 

I still recall being in the old stand when De Vries  headed in number 5 in the 5-1 win over Hibs.

 

I still recall being in that old stand when Robbo scored the winner in the 2-1 win over Hibs, in fact i can still recall many games i watched from that old stand.

 

The glaring point here is that like me many other folk will recall  such games too with that emotional tag to it.

 

Your attack and argument on those expressing such bonds to the old stand was NEVER about your  one dimensional rant of   "get over it its just bricks and mortar and not fit for purpose shite but you knew that did"nt you when posting your vermin like green pesh.

 

You need to get over the fact that like me many supporters will have found memories of "auld bertie".

 

The fact that you attacked a poster  in the first place for nothing more that  expression and sharing his memories of the old stand is fecking cringe-worthy  and embarrassing.

In some respects I agree but sitting opposite it with a full moon above it I knew even if everything else had changed this was MY beloved Tynecastle. OK times change, everything changes mostly for the better, but allow people who stood at this ground and loved Tynecastle as it was and loved the great Hearts players and the great and not so great Hearts teams who played there to have their regrets. I do.

Enlighten me please

D&B, in my experience, is where a client will ask 3 parties to come up with a design for, let's say a school, and a cost to build it. This is done speculatively by those asked to tender. They will then go and source an architect and various consultants to pull it all together and then provide the aforementioned design and cost. The client will then decide who to appoint based on design and best value. This is how the new Kilmarnock College was procured.

 

A traditional build is where the client directly employs the architect and consultants to deliver a design. They will then ask, usually between 3-5, main contractors to tender for the works and will appoint who is usually the cheapest. Edinburgh Council are finding out to their detriment that wasn't a good decision to employ the cheapest contractor on Boroughmuir High.

 

Almost every project my company is involved in we are sub-contracted to the main contractor.
