Liberty Stadium & Enabling Retail Development
The scope of the Liberty Stadium project was to provide funding for the sports and leisure activities as well as enabling commercial facilities on the premises of the stadium. The project was successfully approved by the Government on the site of the old athletics facilities located on the banks of the river Tawe.

SERVICE : Project Management
VALUE : USD 150 million
SIZE : 150,000 m²
CLIENT : Miller Developments
TYPE : Mixed Use & Stadium
The City and Country Council of Swansea (C.C.C.S.) sought to demolish the old football and rugby stadia and replace it with a multi-purpose stadium, releasing valuable housing land on the football stadium site.
C.C.C.S. had insufficient funds to manage this development inhouse and only completed the project with the assistance and financial support of Miller Developments.
The project was highly complex in that it consisted of a number of elements, such as:
- Football and Rugby combined stadium;
- Enabling Retail development;
- Upgrading local educational sports facilities;
- Local road and infrastructure upgrading;
In 2003, Kingston acted as the development manager up until the successful completion of the project in 2005.
