£10 million awarded to help schools open their sports facilities

£10 million awarded to help schools open their sports facilities
04/05/2021

Sport England are investing £10.1 million of government money to help more schools open their facilities to the public once the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is over.

The funding, which has been provided by the Department for Education, is in addition to the £1.5m awarded as part of the School Sport and Activity Action Plan announced in July 2019 and will help schools deliver extra-curricular activities and open their facilities outside of the school day during evenings, weekends and school holidays.

The approach to providing the ideal sustainable sports training structure is based on a number of indicative designs that are: efficiently planned, functionally efficient, meeting sporting requirements, contained within an economical building structure, provided with an efficient and cost effective internal environmental controlled system, capable of being quickly constructed and easily operated.

Planning & Concept When designing a sports facility concept, you firstly need to make sure that the facility meets local needs and will be sustainable in the long-term through clear, logical business and operational planning. To help arrive at the right sports hall provision, Sport England and the national governing bodies of sport (NGBs), have developed a specific eight step path to guide you to RIBA Stage 0 – Strategic Definition which can be found on their website.

The next RIBA stage, Stage 1 would be developing the project objectives, including quality objectives and project outcomes, sustainability aspirations, project budget, other parameters or constraints and develop the initial project brief. This would then lead into undertaking feasibility studies and a review of site information.

Rubb Buildings Ltd has worked alongside many architects, contractors and end users from RIBA Stage 3 to Stage 6 to design, manufacture and construct a number of sports facilities that have been supported by Sport England’s vision. An example would be the new international level sports structure for the University of York, measuring 40m wide x 55m long, which includes a central, premier standard, multi-sports court for recreational and performance level basketball, netball, badminton, futsal and volleyball.
