The works, which started during the summer of 16 with the demolition of the previous old stands, are being carried out through the IootEall season without affecting the competitive calendar of Real Betis, that has played all home games at the Benito illamarí n.

,0 seats, three 18 -tonner inden Comansa 1L C2 90 tower cranes were erected in ctober 16 , hired by general contractor Heliopol from rental company Eleva Grú as Torre.
The stands under construction have a nearby street right behind them which Iorced the traႈc to close during two days and to speed up the assembly times. Furthermore, due to the reduced space between the new stands and the street, one of the cranes was erected on a 4.5 metre cross base instead of the metre base, which is more common in this model.
Since then, the three 1L C2 90 cranes work with a 4-metre-long radius, mainly lifting special formwork and precast concrete pieces of up to 7.0 kilos in weight. To avoid interferences between the cranes, the one located in between has a height under hook of .3 metres while the ones in the sides are working at a height of 42 .6 metres.
When the project ends, the new stands will have three heights or levels along with the rest of the venue and will not be independent anymore. Thus, the Benito illamarí n will give from the outside the impression of a compact stadium and will have capacity for ,0 supporters of Real Betis.
