Chelsea Sign Spatial Structures For New Training Ground Project

Thu 24th Mar 2016 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Spatial Structures, the Gloucester based specialist manufacturer and builder of steel framed, membrane covered buildings has been awarded the contract to build a state of art covered pitch building for Chelsea Football Club.

Work on the new building at Chelsea Football Club’s Cobham training ground is underway and is expected to be completed in September. The new building will be a 60 x 80m single span, steel framed Spatial Structures building.

The fact that there will be no columns will mean that 100% of the 4,800 square metre area will be useable and translucent PVC roof will allow the maximum possible amount of natural daylight through.

The contract which is worth £1.8 million includes, foundations, the superstructures, ventilation, sports lighting, de-humidification and a feature glass façade. Chelsea’s project further reinforces Spatial Structures growing reputation as a leading provider of steel framed, fabric covered structures for a variety of sports.

Spatial Structures have also built indoor football training facilities for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club and Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club (pictured).

Terry Young, Managing Director of Dove Construction which is behind the Spatial Structures brand, commented on the project. “We are delighted to have been chosen by Chelsea for this prestigious project.

“To have been chosen by a Club like Chelsea for a project of this importance is testament to our growing reputation in the industry. 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 both large and small, wanting to cover existing facilities, meaning that bad weather need never stop play or training.”
