State of the art facilities for elite athletes, students and the wider community, in north Leeds.

University of Leeds Cycle Track and Sports Pavilion Refurbishment to Create the Brownlee Centre

Houlton have handed over phase one of the project to carry out the refurbishment of the Sports Park Weetwood Pavilion and Cycle track as well as creating 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 facility was built to capitalise on Yorkshire's Tour De France Legacy and the Tour De Yorkshire, to provide a state of the art facility offering 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”.

The project commenced in July 2017  working alongside Gardiner and Theobald who were managing the project for the client, Architects Farrell & Clark Ltd and Quantity Surveyors Rex Proctor & Partners, a challenging programme sees the build process complete in spring 2017 with a project cost of £5M. 

Construction Director Dave Padden said:

“Houlton were very excited to be involved in this project. The scheme offers 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, was given the 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”

The facility has been renamed the 'Brownlee Centre' in honour of the British athletes Jonny and Alistair who officially opened it in April 2017
