Where a stadium terrace is big enough, we can easily build useful stadium flooring underneath.
A box level at the rear of the stadium produces excellent viewing accommodation and permits much more available useful space for hospitality suites underneath.
A lean to is a cheap and good way to produce stadium accommodation with a small stand.
A box level behind a stand produces an economic structure and more and better accommodation.
Some people plan to provide ground level stadium flooring by raising the terrace by a couple of metres. This leads to a bad grandstand with high obtrusive front barriers which obstruct the view, expensive stairs which also obstruct, un suitable disabled locations, and huge extra expense. A grandstand terrace is an expensive way to provide a ceiling for a room. Please avoid this, by using a lean to behind.
Substantial studios and boxes can be suspended under the rafters.
One major club even planned to have a full scale restaurant up in the rafters, but unfortunately, this was a pie in the sky. There are up to 34 international TV studios in the Doug Ellis stadium at Aston Villa.
The North East and North West corners easily provide excellent in fill boxes, balconies, restaurants, banqueting suites, commentary boxes, interview rooms etc.
Accommodation in grandstands can be used for hospitality suites such as restaurants, ball rooms, balconies, banqueting suites, and bars, or for commentary boxes, TV studios, interview rooms, office space, board rooms, conferencing, video conferencing, shops, or as public facilities such as hotels, and gymnasiums.
