Spatial Structures, the Cheltenham-based specialist manufacturer and builder of steel-framed, membrane-covered buildings, has won the contract to cover a training pitch at Wolverhampton Wanderers' training facilities.
The deal is part of a multimillion pound development by A&H Construction and Developments that will include changing rooms and support facilities at Wolves’ Compton Park training ground.
The Spatial Structures facility will cover an area of 6,600sqm and will enable training to continue whatever the weather or time of day.
As well as being used by the Wolves’ squad, it will also be made available to local schools and the club’s independent charity, Wolves Community Trust.
Spatial Structures recently completed another indoor football training area for Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club.
Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey said: “Quality facilities, such as the new indoor training facility being provided by Spatial Structures, are an important factor when attracting young academy players to the club."
“By investing in this new facility it will give us an added indoor, all-weather capability on the same site as the rest of our elite training facilities.”
Spacial Structures’ managing director Terry Young said: “We were delighted to have been chosen by Wolves for this prestigious project."
“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 wanting to cover existing facilities, meaning that bad weather need never stop play or training.”
Wolves were recently crowned champions of League One, and can still attain a record points tally in their final games of the season.
