    That would be a good problem to have!

    I hope we don't get the same general contractor that Tottenham Hotspur used.

    Buckingham Group built the roof for the Spurs' stadium. The roof was supposedly one of the last things built, but it was said that the delays were due to safety systems. They also built the Amex for Brighton and Hove. The Amex seemed to be completed on schedule and hosted its first match in July 2011. It was a friendly - against the Spurs

    Or, at the very least, the same safety systems subcontractor. Yikes.

    Actually the funny thing is IIRC there was no general contractor. Every trade essentially did their own thing on the own time which led to the clusterfark the process became.

    Update from the club on the Riverside stand with pictures and video: https://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2019/august/07/riverside-stand-update

    This explains why the video from Craven Cottage has been at a bad angle - they are shooting from a scaffold since everything non-structural has been removed from the Riverside stand. The grounds look normal when viewed from the Riverside scaffold, but behind it big changes are happening.

    The old Riverside stand is no more. For the time being everyone gets a view of the Thames. (The demolition video in the tweet doesn't seem to be coming through, but they have it on their Twitter feed and the website.)
