Enhancing communities

Project description

Working alongside Slough Urban Renewal (a joint venture partnership between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments Limited), we delivered the design and construction of an award winning 1,950 capacity community sports facility, which is also the home of Slough Town Football Club.

The facility includes a state-of-the-art 3G pitch, changing facilities, bar and kitchen.

Our team also delivered a separate four court sports hall and a four classroom refurbishment for St Joseph’s Catholic High School adjacent to the stadium.

The project was delivered in two phases. This enabled early release of the football pitch and changing facilities ready for Slough Town FC, while work on the main stand and community facilities continued in phase two.

Enhancing communities

Enhancing communities

Volunteers from the team spent 'Give and Gain' day helping allotment holders at Cherry Orchard build new raised beds and a shelter for older and disabled people.

Councillor Zaffer Ajaib said: “It is wonderful to see this ethos being shown and the community benefits to this venture being seen in both large and small ways.”


Challenges

The main stand was constructed in a live environment, following the phase one handover of pitch and changing rooms – this meant that a full safe and secure shutdown had to happen early on every home match day to ensure the smooth and safe running of the event.

The class base refurbishment and sports hall conversion into a dance studio were undertaken in a live school – works had to be carefully coordinated around the academic calendar to ensure teaching and exam periods remained unaffected.

Testimonials

“I’ve been in regeneration for years, so to have this now is amazing! Seeing the quality of this facility I’m so excited about the other facilities going forward. It’s been really, really positive. The whole team have been excellent. The site was very safe and secure and they would always shut the site so it was ready for the game. Morgan Sindall would always be at the end of the telephone on match days to sort any issues and that was great. I can’t think of any negatives!”
