We are pleased to announce that Blakedown Sport & Play Limited has been selected by Sport England to support their framework for the Design and Construction of Artificial Outdoor Sports Surfaces.
The requirements include visiting and surveying sites for condition and suitability, preparing feasibility reports including outline design proposals, consulting with local Planning and Building Control departments, preparation and submission of necessary Planning and Building Control applications and developing detailed design solutions as well as the construction process itself. The framework will provide Clients with an informed ‘one stop shop’ for their project.
This 4 year framework agreement is a part of a new strategy by Sport England to facilitate the delivery of new and upgraded sports facilities across England initially in support of the £50m Inspired themed round of the Places People Play programme, but also subsequent funding programmes.
The framework agreement is also available for use directly by other public sector bodies and National Governing Bodies of Sport, etc in England with the aim that community level projects are provided in line with Sport England’s best practice documentation and Design Guidance Notes.
Further information regarding Sport England’s Inspired themed round can be found at www.inspiredfacilities.sportengland.org.
