The south and west stands of Scotland's national stadium at Hamden Park are being redeveloped as the country's landmark millennium project

The £51M project has been largely funded by the Millennium Commission and is on schedule for completion for the Scottish FA Cup Final in May, according to engineer Thorburn Colquhoun.

The south stand's 47m cantilevered steel roof, one of the largest in the UK, is supported on 762mm and 508mm diameter concrete-filled steel tubes. Self-weathering steel has been used for the roof, which requires no further protection by traditional methods and is therefore highly cost effective..

A total of 6,000t of steel has been used in the development.
