“I’ve been thrown in at the deep end”, says Daniel, who returns to his course in September after England’s Third Test at Lord’s commences on Thursday 8th. “It’s been a fantastic help to see how design is used in practice.
“I’m a Man City fan more than a cricket fan, but it’s been a fascinating experience to take back with me to my final year of study. It feels great to contribute to making things happen here.”
Daniel has been managing quality issues, day-to-day procedures, and letting cranes in at early hours of the morning.
The £25 million new Stand is half way through its extensive programme. Seating will be ready for the Pakistan Test Match starting 14 July but it completes next year, and will improve the access and view for MCC Members while creating world-class back-of-house control and catering facilities. Designed by Populous, it forms part of the MCC’s £200 million masterplan for modernising the world’s premier cricket ground. By neat co-incidence, MCC is also one of Loughborough University’s key sponsors.
