B & E Boys have successfully handed over the new sports hall at the Moreton Morrell Campus of Warwickshire College. The £1.2million project was completed on time and the new facility in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside is ready for students to enjoy at the start of the summer term.
Warwickshire College has a prestigious reputation for academic success, achieving a 100% pass rate in an impressive 18 A-Level subjects. The Moreton Morrell Campus is highly regarded for its Equine and Sports learning and the new facility is a welcome addition to the site, including a reception area and large sports hall catering for indoor cricket, badminton, basketball, volleyball and netball alongside changing facilities, including home and away dressing rooms and showers as well as a disabled changing room and shower.
The new sports hall is conveniently located on campus adjacent to the college’s sport science and curriculum gym. Key features of the state-of-the-art sports hall include sprung timber flooring, electronic scoreboard and sports equipment store. The building was constructed from a modern steel and cladding construction.
Warwickshire College has also been granted the Foundation Degree Awarding Powers. This indicates that its standards are equal to any university in the country. Of course, the reputation of the institution means that the college is highly popular and it was vital to ensure absolute safety for all students and staff on this very busy residential campus. Procedures were put in place such as walking all lorry deliveries into the site through a barriered system utilising two banksmen to guarantee that accidents were avoided at all times.
Naturally, B & E Boys made sure that other key considerations were taken care of due to the nature of the project, such as ensuring that all site staff were appropriately DBS checked for safeguarding purposes. Of course, the Warwickshire College project was nothing new to B & E Boys. The company have extensive experience of constructing sports and educational buildings and have provided facilities for several educational establishments. We build to Sport England Standards, ensuring that all projects all built to high quality specifications, are long-lasting, whilst remaining cost-effective at the same time.
Contracts Manager Mike Carney said, ‘It was a pleasure to work with College team on what as a very busy campus throughout the duration of the contract. We were pleased to be given the responsibility of delivering an outstanding new facility that the college can be justifiably proud of.’
B & E Boys are always looking to develop and meet current construction requirements, blending traditional craftsmanship with the very latest techniques. We are proud with the relationships that we have built over the years with the education sector and look forward to working on similar projects in the future.
