About the project

Sewell Construction is currently developing an impressive sports facility set to include three full size LED floodlit 3G Football Turf Pitches, a four-team changing pavilion with community café, meeting space and parking facilities.

Once complete, the new site at the University of Leeds will be home to six partner clubs whose 142 teams will have access to fantastic facilities. As well as supporting the local community, the scheme will also be an important home to the University’s sports programmes, as well as delivering a broad range of recreational programmes and activities for the wider community.

This project will give a welcomed boost to grassroots sports in Leeds made possible thanks to investment from the University of Leeds and a £4.2m grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation.

Progress so far

The superstructure to the pavilion is going well, with the blockwork up to the 1st lift internally and externally. The internal and external scaffold has been erected allowing blockwork to continue.

The access road to pitches 1 and 3 has been constructed to tarmac binder level. Additionally, large areas of the car park have also been constructed to tarmac level.

Works continue with ducting and drainage installation throughout the site including the link to the Brownlee Centre.

Over the next two weeks

The steel frame to the 2nd half of the pavilion will be installed over the coming weeks. This will allow the continuation of the blockwork up to the wall plate height, releasing the roofing works.

Externally we plan to continue preparing and laying tarmac to the car park areas.
