MODERN FACILITIES – Delivered through a JCT D&B contract with early engagement of key supply parnters, Read worked in partnership with the Football Assocation of Wales, Glyndŵr University and Lawray Architects to deliver this prestigious project at Colliers Park, Gresford. Colliers Park is the new elite football training facility that refurbished an existing outdated facility and married it with a substantial modern extension comprising, dedicated player zone, analysis rooms, impressive changing rooms and state of the art medical facilities, coaching suites and gymnasium.

DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION – We deployed drone technologies and imagery to produce site wide 3D modelled progress updates and cut / fill volume calculations. The information was shared with our supply chain, design and client teams to improve transparency of progress reporting and cost data.

The centre further benefits Welsh football nationally and locally by delivering accessible and high-class training facilities for talented young players and the wider football workforce in North Wales.

The training facility includes:

  • two top quality grass pitches;
