I wouldn't want to sit up there with the extra weight sat on them steels, they are fecked


They did look a bit fooked judging by those pics on here last week. Likewise, there's no way (not that I ever would) I will be sitting in that death trap. That steel looked fooked even without the couple of hundred ton yet to go back on - plus a few thousand punters! Bollox to that. Shocked
Those steels will need at least five coats of magic paint to stabilise them.

You and your fooking magic steel paint, FFS! Laughing

So did they start this whole thing off with no structural survey? Or are these latent defects? Or (worst option) is this PM suggesting that they had a survey done and ignored the results?

The first option would be idiocy, considering the sums involved. The second would be a bummer, but unfortunately these things do happen occasionally - not every defect is apparent before strip-out.

The third option would be, to put it very mildly, not good...
The whole project has reeked of amateur inefficiency from the start. We both said at the start that a project this size needs proper management.
if this is where we are at now the board should resign, bring the administrators in and hand the keys to the AFT. 
I'd like to see the pm please.

Jubbs have been involved from the start, as have ADG. My experiences of Jubb's isn't great, but they are no mugs. Likewise, we've worked with ADG, and they know their stuff. Like most architects, they can be a bit optimistic about how much space you need to squeeze the structure in, but they're generally smart people. I'd be very surprised if there wasn't some kind of survey done and numbers run early on. I'm guessing these issues were ones that have been uncovered during strip out? But who knows.

Like you say, I think we both raised eyebrows about a newbie Project Manager taking on something this big. The job is easy when everything goes to plan - it's when things go wrong that you earn your corn!

I'm pretty sure that all exposed steel in this type of building has to be fire retardant painted but obviously that is new construction - never heard of magic paint for 70 year old stuff, to hold it up??!!

Most posters on this forum said the Moanflower was a sixty year old pile of rusting crap that should have been taken down, problems for the future methinks. Typical Argo.

Rest assured it would have been screenshot by the piss-stained fake yank and passed onto his Jedi master, Obi Pig Kanobi.

I've managed to find this pic from before Christmas. The rusty crap shack has been strengthened so at least someone is trying to sort this mess out.  But is there anything else that has not been found????

Basically Brent approached a SW Chartered surveyors firm who strongly advised him to demolish the existing structure & build a completely new stand and that the mankover would be an inadequate bodge. Said firm did not want to touch Mankover with a bargepole.

from a reliable poster as well.


Reliable? You have got to be kidding!

At what point does refurb of the grandstand become more costly than just having knocked it flat and starting over in the first instance.

Or has that point been passed already?

Very reassuring lol. Think next time I pay £24 for my dose of footballing despair I will sit on the Lyndhurst end of the Demport - just in case.

Unreal Jethro unreal a bit of half inch plate reinforcement with bolts so small the bodger can use a battery powered windy gun to tighten the nuts.

Brent and Hallett come clean for christs sake.  Brents shenanigans over this latest fiasco has spread far and wide already over 36 hours

Guests reading this thread should contact the club and express disgust that this time Brents inept bungling will potentially put people at risk over this proposed bodge structure not fit for purpose and should be condemned forthwith

Exactly, whichever company whos men are on that need to be called out.

I will fire off an email in a bit , but judging by the lack of response to other people from this forum,
I don't have much hope,
