How can we
The new facilities set Bristol City up for Premier League football by combining training facilities for the first team and academy players. The project consisted of the construction of the new high performance centre, formation of grass pitches, the provision of floodlighting, & the erection of the groundsman’s storage, & car parking facilities.
The ground floor of the centre incorporates a gymnasium, tactics room, hydrotherapy pool, changing rooms, and medical & rehabilitation facilities. The first floor houses the management suite, welfare and education facilities, media room as well as a well equipped kitchen and dining facilities. Bristol City Women will play all of their home fixtures for the championship campaign at this state of the art facility.
The new facility will allow the first team under 23s to train together on the same site for the first time and enhance the pathway from Academy to first team. The project includes a 500-seat floodlit main pitch which will be able to host the Robins’ Under 23 matches, and two other new full-size pitches as well as two more training areas.
This project was carried out during the unprecedented Covid19 pandemic which created never seen before challenges including the unpredictable availability of materials and labour. Engineering Services ensured a Planner was on site regularly to ensure the programme was kept on track on this fast pace project.
We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.
The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.
We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
