We were chosen to deliver a turnkey home and away changing room facility to Saracens RFC which will be used for a 12 month period whilst a new stand and changing room are constructed.
Measuring 15m x 35m, the structure uses a 255mm x 122mm industrial frame which is snow and wind loaded and received full building control approval.
The sandwich panel sides and blow up roof give our client an insulated solution, whilst the electric sliding doors, suspended ceiling, and specially designed shower rooms make this structure feel like more of a permanent solution.
Our offering included complete project management of subcontractors including plumbing, heating, power and internal fit out.
Left in our very capable hands to deliver the whole project, we well and truly delivered.
Tottenham FC: Semi-Permanent Changing Rooms
Year of Job: 2021
We were approached by Tottenham Hotspur to provide a solution for the Ladies 1st Team facility. At the time, the ladies team was training out of a local school and wanted a building to facilitate all of their needs.
After a 4 month planning process of between our ourselves, the client and their consultants, we began work on the installation of their brand new facility.
Tottenham already had a relationship with a civils and groundworker so they engaged with them to lay the foundations and slab containing all of the necessary services coming up through the slab in agreed locations.
We then started onsite erecting the 15m x 37.5m structure. Getting the aluminium frame up and clad in 80mm thick walling and 100mm thick roof within 2 weeks was a pleasant surprise to the client! We then installed 13 double glazed windows and 8 doors of various make-ups to give the structure all of the natural light and access that they needed.
Then the work started internally with the installation of a heating/cooling system as well as all of the electrics and plumbing. During this phase we also installed the internal walls which were a mix of fire resistant plasterboard and acoustic plasterboard, all full height to the roof to comply with both fire regs and the clients sound attenuation requirements.
The spaces created varied from changing rooms, shower facilities, meeting rooms, kitchen, physio suite, gymnasium, multiple toilets and the necessary cleaners/plant rooms/data room and storage spaces.
With all the trades present both inside and out there were some days with in excess of 35 workers onsite – It was a fantastic demonstration of how we manage and deploy our subcontracted team to deliver a fantastic project.
Taking just 17 weeks from dropping the first foot on the slab to handing over the building, we were extremely proud to deliver this to a very excited Ladies First team and all the associated staff to occupy.
