The two-storey building will contribute 3,200m2 to the Jersey Road training complex and will include dedicated office space, changing rooms and medical treatment rooms.
Working in partnership with Ardent Sports, the team at Portakabin have been able to create a bespoke building for the Bees following planning approval in June.
The new training facility, whilst temporary, represents a significant improvement on current facilities and will act as a stepping-stone towards the Club’s longer-term vision for a state-of-the-art performance centre.
Made up of over 80 modules which have been precision engineered offsite at the Portakabin manufacturing facility in York, the building will contain all necessary facilities the Premier League side will require for both its First and B teams.
Installed over 14 days, the building will be operational by the end of the year and as well as level access, fully glazed doors and bespoke furniture will also contain a hydrotherapy suite, a cryotherapy unit and plunge pool. A viewing platform will also be installed on the roof of the ground floor overlooking the pitches at Jersey Road. The surrounding site will benefit from a new roadway as well as an attenuation tank.
We’re delighted to be once again working with a topflight Premiership football club. Having the capability to deliver facilities like this for the highest calibre of athlete is a fantastic achievement for our team. The building will be in place for the next five years, enabling the Club to continue to develop its plans for a new permanent performance centre and we’re honoured to be part of that process.
