Close season refurb for Stoke City FC
The Premier League football stars at Stoke City will enjoy upgraded facilities in the 2016/17 season following a range of close season improvements which we’ll be carrying out.
The club’s training complex at Clayton Wood has been the subject of a multi-million pound redevelopment project in recent months and we’ve been called in to deliver a number of new and upgraded facilities.
The scope of the project includes the creation a new ground maintenance workshop to improve the facilities available to ground staff, and the Clayton Wood complex itself will receive a brand new gate house giving enhanced security at the complex.
With a new season approaching, few areas of the training ground are more important than the treatment room where Stoke’s superstars receive vital medical attention, and we’ll be building an extension so that club doctors can work more comfortably and efficiently.
The team will also construct and erect a new TV gantry so that the club’s training sessions, academy matches and behind-closed-doors fixtures can be filmed, and all the work at the training ground must be completed to the club’s extremely high standards.
Adam Williams, construction manager at Novus Property Solutions, said: “Stoke City’s training facilities are state-of-the-art and between May and July we will be working very hard to make them even better.
“The existing facility includes features such as zinc cladding and offset column designs, and we’ll ensure the new elements are entirely in keeping with the aesthetic and functional qualities that the club expects.”
Richard Smith, managing director of Stoke City Property, said: “As a club we are constantly looking at ways we can provide our players and staff, both at first team level and in the academy, with the best possible environment in which to work.
“The latest phase of redevelopment work represents another hugely significant investment in terms of the cost but it’s necessary to continue to move the club forward.”
