Stadium Works during season break

Recommended Posts

Are there any plans to continue with the Main Stand fit-outs and any other projects during the  break?

The changing rooms are to be completed this summer, apparently.

Is there much work left to complete in the main stand?

Will be good to watch the rest of the interior of the new stand getting painted in various strip colours etc. It is a really good theme to go with.

 

Other stands with a similar thing would finish it all off. New stand railings are still plain grey, would be nice if they got painted maroon like the other stands.

 

Also, really wish they'd paint the inside of the gable ends maroon like - https://www.hmfckickback.co.uk/index.php?/topic/177440-paint-the-walls-of-tynecastle/

I'm happy to be corrected by someone more knowledgeable, but I think the entire second floor is still to be fitted out.

The restaurant/function suite on the top floor still needs completed I think. Ann Budge said at the AGM back in December that it had to be ready at some point in June because the first wedding is booked for then!

I still thought the 2nd level hospitality and the 'Where the fecks the castle' view restaurant were still to be done

When we finally get the trees, could stick a wee model Edinburgh Castle between some branches. Some folk would never know the difference.

Big choice between a Michelin 3 star rooftop restaurant or 3 quality players? 

I dread to think what option budge will pick.

Still lots to do on the upper levels i’d Imagine but the recent concourse paint jobs seemed a big hit..

When the stand was getting completed there was pictures of an escalator put on here, what’s happened with that?

Reckon the restaurant would be cheaper and more profitable. Probably why she is rich. Knows how to appreciate money rather than spunk it

There’s a wee glass front room at the back of section s- is that a single hospitality box?

Just getting the stand finished would be good. How many millions we looking at now for a still incomplete stand?

 

The rest of the stands are looking a bit shabby in and out too. Some of the girders in the Wheatfield are almost green. The outside of the stands too particularly the Roseburn and the Wheatfield could do with a good hosing down

Anne said the Directors are being moved up to the top for access, moving their lounge too I assume!

Ah makes sense. It’s empty but. Apretty good room. Would have been interesting if we could have had 7 or 8 of them along the back.

Certainly would be interesting to get an end of season update. My recollection is that the changing rooms should be ready for the start of next season and the ‘sky lounge’ by June as someone is getting married there.

You would lose quite a few seats. The rationale for not having them is that people don’t like sitting in glass boxes. ??‍♂️

Do they still close off the corridor between the north and south sections of 

the new main stand to let the Directors and their guests get from their lounge 

to their seats. I remember they also closed the walkway in front of the 

Directors seated area obviously to keep them away from fans. This is really 

bad planning as you'd imagine the Directors and guests would have their 

own private access from their lounge to their seats which does not having 

to close off access for fans to parts of the ground.

I heard they were thinking of moving the directors to help alleviate the problem.

 The Roseburn could do with hosing down with certain fans in it !

There is one behind the turnstiles next to the shop. I have been using it as I'm walking with a stick at the moment.

People in glass boxes shouldn't throw smoke bombs.

On my visit to the Directors suite this season, which contrary to the ****in morons on here that will expect it to have Gold Champagne taps, its now right beside the main entrance and the size of a Shoebox.

 

Ann and the board deserve much better and I hope there is plans this summer to house the Suite in much better surroundings.

There’s poor chap who sits fairly high up in section R who almost has to crawl up the stairs to his seat. Bet he wishes he could make use of the escalator up to the top floor.

indeed. signing 'quality' players can still be a gamble and can flop. hopefully the restaurant will be profitable. it's awful having a successful business person at the helm throwing all these profitable ideas our way....

Decent stand but 18 million or whatever does seem to be a little steep for what's built, nice enough but the cost ??

And the cost will be only about £40 million.  Well worth every penny.

Yeah fair enough. I think there was only 5-10 seats missing for that one. One at the top of each stair would have been ideal if they were filled every week for a premium price. Not sure they would be though. I’m Not going to lose any sleep about it though!
