If you’ve been keeping an eye on the developments around the Sports Centre then you can’t have missed that the new development is really starting to take shape after a brief lull over the Christmas break.

You might’ve seen pictures of the new building but really, nothing can prepare you for the size of it in the flesh. Just to give you an idea, our current sports hall contains one full size basketball court; the new one will house an incredible THREE! To say we’re excited about all the amazing facilities this development will allow us to host is a massive understatement.

Now the steel framework is all in place the next stage of the build is progressing apace, with the pre-cast concrete staircase between floors recently appearing. Roof netting is in place and over the next few days we’re expecting to see metal decking and stud welding, as well as floor prep and clay board installation.

Keep checking back here for progress updates, and also keep an eye on the Campus Sport Facebook and Twitter pages.
