Construction of a brand new school sports facility in Loughborough, Leicestershire, has been completed by the contractor company Stepnell following their appointment to the project by the Loughborough Schools Foundation.
The new £2.1M Parkin Sports Centre features facilities such as a sports hall, fitness suite, dance studio, changing rooms, classrooms, and reception area, with the students of Loughborough High School and Loughborough Amherst School being the main beneficiaries of these.
The Stepnell Regional Director, Thomas Sewell stated: “We are extremely proud and pleased to have completed such a stunning sports facility, creating a space for students to learn new valuable skills in an exceptional learning environment and enjoy playing sport at the same time.
“Working in a live environment is never easy and this project was particularly challenging due the central location of the new sports hall on the school campus, surrounded by occupied buildings and neighbouring boundaries. Throughout the building works, we had to ensure that our activity didn’t impact on day to day activities at the school, and we put special measures in place so that disruption was kept to a minimum.
“Our specialist sector experts understand the complexities of educational construction, and with our combination of experience and knowledge we are able to anticipate the risks and opportunities associated with educational projects and to ensure that our clients can maximise the whole life value of their investments.”
The Director of Operations at Loughborough Schools Foundation, Rob Grant added: “Loughborough Schools Foundation is very pleased to have this fantastic new sports hall which has enhanced our sporting facilities for all of our students.
“Much consideration went into the design of the Parkin Sports Centre in order to ensure the facility offered something for everyone and encouraged sports participation at all levels. We are already seeing the benefits of the new space as our students now enjoy an increased amount of sports activities during their lessons.”
