University of Leeds: New Cycle Track and Sports Pavilion Refurbishment

Houlton have been awarded the contract to carry out the refurbishment of Bodington Sports Pavilion, the construction of a new 1.6 kilometre tarmac cycle track, and three new sports pitches.

The project, funded by University of Leeds and UK Sport and British Cycling was let by the University and procured via the YORbuild2 framework.

The intention is to build on Yorkshire's Tour De France Legacy and the recent Tour De Yorkshire, by providing a state of the art facility that will offer strength and conditioning, physiotherapy and support services to elite athletes as well as providing an environment for students to develop and fulfil their potential as future athletes.

The facilities, including the 1.6 kilometre tarmac closed road cycle circuit and pitches will be available for use by staff, students and the wider community, with the University continuing to support grass roots sport.

It is hoped that the centre would become home to British Triathlon.  Jonny Brownlee, Olympic Triathlon medallist and UoL Alumni, described the project as “very exciting”. He said: “It would take the triathlon facilities to the next level and make Leeds the complete triathlon city”.

Commencing in July 2017 and working alongside Gardiner and Theobald managing the project for the client, Architects Farrell & Clark Ltd and Quantity Surveyors Rex Proctor & Partners, a challenging programme sees the build process due to complete in December 2016 with a project cost of £5M.

Construction Director Dave Padden said 

“Houlton are very excited to be involved in this project. The scheme is going to offer students first class, state of the art facilities as well as continuing to provide grass roots sports in the wider community.

For us, the fact that Houlton, a long established company with a tradition of providing investment and opportunity for its own staff, has been given this opportunity, to be associated with  the University’s investment In its aspiring athletes of the future as well as existing Elite athletes, makes us immensely proud”
