Mabley Green playing fields was an exceptionally complex project. This was because its design had to satisfy multiple funding bodies including Football Foundation, Sport England and London Delivery Authority.
Thurston provided a full turnkey project including the design, manufacture, external works and installation of a four team changing facility with office, first aid room and changing facilities.
The interior of the building was fully fitted with many different high quality features. These included a gas and water heating system that gave out hot water on demand for the shower and ablution facilities. All the plumbing and electrical work was carried out by Thurston. All the features met with the Football Foundations standards and this building is to the BBA specification with a 60 year design life.
Aesthetically the external works included a bespoke brick skin and mono pitch ‘brown’ roof which meant that all the spoils from the groundworks could be put onto the roof allowing for an environmentally friendly element to the build.
