Sports Hubs

Nothing show cases our abilities and scope better than the creation and delivery of an integrated Sports Hub. Drawing on our complete range of Pre-Construction services, the scale and complexity of such projects place a particular emphasis on the capability to mobilise and escalate resources according to the requirements of a multi-discipline programme.

Clients certainly appreciate our expert, one stop, single delivery solution which concentrates responsibilities, and both simplifies and maximises effective communication.

With all the key design, technical, delivery and management project elements under a single focussed control, you benefit from the inbuilt efficiencies and cost advantages which accrue in comparison to a more ‘segmented’ approach.

We provide a truly inclusive strategy which evaluates the impacts of each project phase both as individual centres and as part of the whole.

Thus, we ensure that decisions are not isolated from the requirements of the ‘bigger picture’ but are linked to create a more cohesive and balanced approach.

At an operational level the economies of using equipment, resources and management expertise across a multi-functional contract rather than duplicating the same resources for different operational areas is an obvious gain.

Our technical skills are evident and proven through our growing portfolio of Sports Hubs successfully completed for numerous high-profile clients. These include:
