Spatial Structures, the Cheltenham-based specialist manufacturer and builder of steel framed, membrane covered buildings has been awarded the contract to cover a training pitch for Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.
The contract is part of a multi-million pound development by A&H Construction and Developments that will include changing rooms and support facilities at Wolves’ Compton Park Training Ground. The Spatial Structures facility will cover an area of 6,600 square metres and will enable training to continue whatever the weather or time of day.
Wolves has the highest Premier League classification possible for Academies and these new facilities are an important part of their youth development strategy. As well as being used by the Wolves’ squad, it will also be made available to local schools on Compton Park and the Club’s independent charity, Wolves Community Trust.
Wolves’ project further reinforces Spatial Structures growing reputation as a leading provider of steel framed, fabric covered structures for a variety of sports. Spatial Structures recently completed another indoor football training area for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.
Jez Moxey, Chief Executive, Wolves, said: “Quality facilities, such as the new Indoor Training Facility being provided by Spatial Structures, are an important factor when attracting young Academy players to the Club. By investing in this new facility it will give us an added indoor, all-weather capability on the same site as the rest of our elite training facilities.”
Terry Young commented on the project: “We were delighted to have been chosen by Wolves for this prestigious project. The new building will give the club a fantastic all year round, all weather training facility. Given the unpredictable nature of the British weather we are seeing a growing demand in sports clubs wanting to cover existing facilities, meaning that bad weather need never stop play or training”.
