Knavesmire Grandstand, York Racecourse

The Knavesmire Stand provided new Tattersalls accommodation for 5,000 race goers whilst the upper two floors included dining and hospitality for 1,000 people. The facilities have been carefully designed to cater for both racing and non-racing use, being flexible in form and function.

GWP have worked in association with the Directors of the Racecourse over the past 20 years on a variety of projects, including the provision of two major grandstand developments.

Located within a conservation area, the re-development aspects of the site have required careful consideration with the Local authority Planning Department in respect of potential visual impact primarily to the surrounding area. The practice has also been recognised by a number of significant awards for projects on the site.
