Sports pavilion and clubhouse construction

When producing a comprehensive and inclusive design solution for your sports facility, we can include and implement the full necessary support structure.

This includes sports buildings and structures:

  • Modular grandstands
  • Bleacher seating
  • Covered walkways
  • Pavilions
  • Club rooms
  • Team shelters
  • Storage

As well as the construction of state of the art sports facilities, we work with clients such as Leatherhead Youth Football Club, Holy Cross School and South Bromsgrove High to deliver supporting surfacing, equipment installation and building construction.

Aside from the economical side of working with one contractor to deliver both the major and supporting elements of a new sports construction project, clients benefit from our highly experienced, collaborative and expert team from start to finish.

Whether you need a small spectator seating area, team shelters or a large-scale pavilion, we can incorporate a wide variety of buildings and structures into your sports construction project.

Sports Pavilion Construction

How long does it take to build a new sports pavilion or spectator area?

Clubhouses, team shelters and spectator areas are likely to be incorporated at the design and planning stage of a new sports construction project. The design and planning stage will likely be the most time-consuming part of the process, and in the case of certain structures, like team shelters, much of the main pitch construction will need to be completed first.

As part of the agreed construction schedule, our dedicated teams will ensure that the supporting building structures are delivered alongside the construction of your sports pitch or court.

Small structures may be built and implemented within a short space of time, with multi-story pavilions generally constructed alongside the main pitch, to ensure that your new facilities are handed over as one. This could take between 2-14 weeks, depending on the size and scope of your overall project works.

How much does a sports building cost?

This will depend entirely on the size and scope of the building. For example, a 4-team changing room and club room pavilion for a football club will be a lot more expensive than pitch-side team shelters or a small storage provision.

The main factors that will impact the overall cost are:

  • Type of building, e.g. pavilion, storage room, team shelter
  • Size of the building, e.g. number of stories and rooms
  • Scope of groundworks required
  • Internal features e.g. electrical and utilities
  • Materials used (e.g. modular, timber frame etc.)
  • Design and finish
  • Ancillary equipment

Cost Benefits

As well as taking advantage of our one-stop service which minimises management complexity and maximises communication, making our brief fully inclusive delivers both management and supply cost efficiencies.

For instance, whilst we have our groundworks and construction machinery on site to prepare a sport pitch footprint and sub-base, it makes complete economic sense to utilise the same to prepare foundations for say new changing facilities.

Project delivery benefits

And it certainly helps to achieve a smooth and integrated programme of works if there is just one specialist control point.
