Construction of the stadium was completed by Ballast Nedam in 2001. The pitch was converted to artificial FieldTurf in 2004. Since winning promotion to the top-flight of Scottish football in May 2008, the artificial surface has had to be replaced by grass due to SPL rules. In addition to the turf replacement, a temporary stand was erected in March 2008 to bring the stadium's capacity up to the SPL requirement of 6,000 all seater.Records
The stadium's record attendance of 5,898 was set on 28 February 2009 when Hamilton played league leaders Rangers in a Scottish Premier League game.
