Are West Ham edging ever closer to eventually owning the London Stadium as report highlights worsening finances?

Question to anyone that might be able to answer. I have some ideas about how the stadium could be improved for football while also retaining an athletics legacy. Might there any professional firms/ people who might be able run the rule over these ideas to see if they are technaically and financially feasible and if so, who are they?

Anyone who could would get significant exposure for their efforts.

I suspect this particular thread might be too narrow a window to advertise your plea. Might I suggest either the Architecture board or the Creative Corner board?

London Stadium revamp set for 2020 with new-look stands and free WiFi on the way

West Ham announced back in February plans to square off the north and south stands at the arena in E20

Back in February of this year, the club announced plans to square off the Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby Moore stands in order to bring fans closer to the action, something that has been much maligned since the team moved to the former Olympic Stadium in 2016 having left Upton Park.

It went a bit quiet on any news regarding the stands in the aftermath of the announcement but now, after a meeting of the Official Supporters Board (OSB) meeting earlier this week, it was announced that the hope is for it to be installed by next August if everything goes to plan.

Losses for the London Stadium could hit £150m but West Ham rule out lucrative naming rights sponsorship with gambling, tobacco and alcohol companies due to 'inappropriate' image

Kind if silly considering who their kit sponsor is.

West Ham haven't ruled anything out. The ban on betting shops/ tobacco/ alcohol etc was in the original lease document in 2013.

I've made a shortlist up:

SNC Lavalin
Arup
Aecom
Mott Macdonald
WSP Global
jacobs
Stantec
Kier
Skanska
Amec Foster Wheeler
Sweco
Ferrovial
Hochtief
IDOM

I thought that engineering over actual design might be more important given the project scope. Any comments/ additions?

West Ham CEO Karren Brady has said that around 300 seats in the new look north and south stands at London Stadium will not be covered by the arena roof but will be similarly close to the pitch as the current setup at Wembley and the Emirates Stadium.

It went a bit quiet on any news regarding the stands in the aftermath of the announcement but now, after a meeting of the Official Supporters Board (OSB) meeting a fortnight ago, it was announced that the hope is for it to be installed by next August if everything goes to plan.

The minutes from that meeting have now been released by the club and it confirms that Baroness Brady expects there to be around 300 seats uncovered and unprotected from the elements.

It also confirmed that the new stands would house around 3,600 seats at each end of the stadium. According to Brady, the 300 seats are expected to be "highly desirable" despite the lack of cover overhead.

Any season ticket holders in the stand will be offered the closest like-for-like seat but if their seat was now not covered by the roof and they wanted to move they will have the opportunity to relocate should they choose to.
