Cleaning the Dolman stand at Ashton Gate

This week our team has been cleaning the Dolman stand at Ashton Gate stadium in Bristol. The project involved cleaning the sides and roof of this massive steel structure, as well as the tall steel poles on the roof. The metal surfaces had become badly stained with algae and atmospheric pollution, so we were called in to clean the whole structure and get it looking spick and span again. 

About the Dolman stand

Constructed in 1970, the Dolman Stand is Ashton Gate stadium’s oldest stand. It's single steel-frame cantilever roof has no pillars, allowing spectators to enjoy an uninterrupted view of the games. As one of the first stands of its kind, it was considered a feat of engineering. The stand was refurbished in 2015, when the roof was extended to tie in with the newly built South Stand. It has a capacity of around 6,200 and is named after the former club chairman and president Harry Dolman.

To find out more about our exterior cleaning services please contact Max or Andy on 0333 234 1445 or email your enquiry and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.


Safe high-level access 

We have expertise in working at height and a range of options available for reaching and cleaning hard to access exterior surfaces. We used our cherry pickers to clean the massive metal panels and support structures of the Dolman stand. Their ‘up and over’ hydraulic booms achieve excellent height and outreach. They are also compact and agile, which makes them ideal for working in tight spaces.

Our preferred cleaning method for this project was pressurised steam which made light work of removing the algae staining and left the metal surfaces looking good as new.

Our team is careful and considerate when working on site. We created a temporary track from wooden panels for our vehicles to drive across and park on to protect the precious pitch. We also covered the bench seats of the stand with plastic to stop them from getting wet.

Despite the inclement weather conditions our dedicated team of IPAF qualified operatives were able to complete the work safely, efficiently and on time. The stadium is now once again looking its brilliant best – and we have yet another incredibly pleased client.
