Nottingham University’s requirement was for Spaciotempo to manage the installation of more than 3000 square metres of bespoke temporary sports facilities at the University Park campus, from planning and groundworks to completion within five months.
Spaciotempo’s “one stop shop” temporary solution for the University has incorporated a 12 court sports hall, gym, three squash courts, and two dance studios with sprung floors. The complex also boasts wet and dry changing facilities, office and storage, and reception area.
Dan Tilley, Director of Sport at the University commented “The temporary sports complex represents the first stage in what is a huge project for us. Spaciotempo came up with a plan that followed our brief and they’ve showed a positive, flexible attitude throughout. They provided an all-encompassing service which was a massive bonus for us. It meant we were able to delegate the entire project, and have now simply taken delivery of the keys.”
Spaciotempo’s Managing Director, Scott Jameson, said “We managed the entire project which involved a lot of ground work and the installation of several sports buildings. We put in all the drainage and provided the framework, flooring and electrical equipment including the heating and fixtures and fittings. It was a big task, but it was completed right on schedule.”
