Barr Construction has been named the preferred contractor for the new £38m Aberdeen FC stadium at Loirston Loch in Scotland.

Barr will transform land at Loirston Loch into a 21,000-seat arena south of Aberdeen.

Construction on the stadium will start early next year and is expected to be complete ahead of the 2013-14 season.

Design features for the proposed stadium include horizontal bands of translucent cladding installed around the top of the stadium bowl, allowing it to emit a red glow at night to match the team’s colours.

The Scottish Government approved the application for this project in March 2011.
