Spatial Structures, the Gloucester based specialist manufacturer and builder of galvanized steel framed, fabric membrane covered buildings, constructed the new indoor training facility for Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.
The contract for the new indoor centre was part of a multi-million pound development that included changing rooms and support facilities. The structure covers an area of 6,600 square metres and enables training to continue whatever the weather or time of day.
The building spans 66 metres and is 112 metres long, allowing the Club to accommodate a full size 3G pitch. Galvanized steel is a vital and integral part of the structure and a very cost effective option. As well as being aesthetically pleasing the qualities of galvanized steel made it the ideal to deal with the potential high levels of condensation that can be present with a building of this nature. The robust finish of the set it apart from other potential materials. Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has the highest classification possible for Academies and these facilities are an important part of their youth development strategy.
