New Sports Hub opens at University of Warwick

The University of Warwick has opened its new Sport and Wellness Hub. Designed by David Morley Architects with

Wilmott Dixon acting as main contractor for the project, the building is designed to be accessible and inclusive for all. Part of a £49m investment into the site, the

facility includes a 230-station gym and a 25m, 12 lane swimming pool. It also features a 12- court sports arena, six glass-backed squash courts and a climbing centre. The building has sustainability at its heart, to

leave a smaller footprint on the planet. “The Sport and Wellness Hub is part of our

wider strategy to promote health and wellbeing across the campus – with the goal of being the most active campus community in the UK by 2020,” said Lisa Dodd-Mayne, director of sport & active communities at the University of Warwick. “This project fits perfectly with our ethos to

enhance life through design, and encourages participation through a combination of people,

places and programmes,” said Andy Mytom, partner at David Morley Architects.

Mansfield sporting facilities transformed for local community

The FA Facilities Fund. “The grant we helped Mansfield Town

Developments secure from the Football Foundation will enable it to introduce community programmes to better serve local people at a modern sports facility,” says Gary Johnson director at LK2. The RH Academy will help provide the

community with fit-for-purpose sporting amenities including: Mansfield Town FC Football in the Community, Mansfield Town academy teams, local community sports clubs alongside schools and residents. The development also provides a sport education facility and community space to enhance opportunities for local communities and actively encourage participation in recreational programmes.

A £2.5m sustainable sport and recreational activity facility has opened in Mansfield. The RH Academy - short for The Radford &

Hymas Academy after the two benefactors John Radford and Steve Hymas - saw an old playing field transformed into a sports hub with a full size 3G artificial pitch, 150-seater stand and a changing room pavilion which will serve

academy teams, local community sports clubs alongside schools and residents in the local area. Architecture and sports & leisure firm LK2

worked with contractor Taylor Pearson Construction, to support Mansfield Town Developments CIC throughout the scheme, securing £500,000 worth of funding from the Football Foundation and The Premier League & 7
