Increased student numbers and growth in popularity of sports clubs and fitness meant that the University of Kent required an extension and refurbishment of their existing Sports Centre complex.

University of Kent Sports Centre Extension

Location: Canterbury

Client: University of Kent

Value: £2.1m

Across a 30 week contract, we delivered additional fitness studio space, a free weights studio, physio hub and new dance studio as well as a new four courts sports hall.

The new four badminton court sized sports hall was constructed to Sport England standards, while the existing fitness suite was completely refurbished and extended to form part of an 800 sq m fitness and high performance free weights suite. This has provided the University with the ability to cater for greater numbers at peak times.

The ‘physio therapy hub’ allows for treatment of injuries on site and the 280 sq m multi-purpose studio can be sub-divided and is suitable for various activities including; spinning, aerobics, yoga, martial arts as well as exams, conferences and events.
