Gallagher Ltd is undertaking the groundworks and reinforced concrete superstructures package for Leicester City Football Club’s new world-class football training centre, for principal contractor McLaren.

The main building is an impressive structure that moulds into the landscape. Surrounding the building will be 11 full-size outdoor pitches, eight smaller pitches, five training grids and two goalkeeping areas. The indoor facilities include 35 bedrooms, a hydrotherapy pool, rehabilitation facilities and dining areas for the club’s academy and first team, as well as administration offices and a media centre. Next to the main building is a full-size indoor artificial pitch.

The centre will include a sports turf academy, to train the next generation of grounds-people, and a 499-seat mini-venue show pitch, so that the under-23 and under-18 teams can experience a match environment.

The programme for the works is extremely fast involving close co-ordination between Gallagher Ltd, the earthworks contractor, specialist pitch contractor and the steel frame contractor. The centre is set to complete in mid 2020.
