The difference for us with this project was manufacturing and building roofless stands, later covered by canvas-type curved rooves in line with the architect’s vision.
We made excellent progress after starting on site during mid-2016 and Phase 1 stands were ready in time for Slough Town to play their first match at their new home on 29th August 2016.
In November 2017 we returned for Phase 2 to increase capacity in the main stand which houses changing facilities and clubhouse and installed a new scoreboard ready to receive TV screens.
In superb recognition of our hard work required to meet the project’s deadlines and deliver ground improvements of a quality matching this modern facility, Groundtastic, the well-respected football grounds magazine, named Arbour Park as the Best New Non-League Ground of 2016/17!
Groundtastic said “the visual continuity” and “tastefully designed” stands and facilities made it their choice for this coveted trophy.
After losing their old home in 2003 and ground sharing with Windsor and Beaconsfield, in 2015 the club were finally told they were getting a new home ground as part of Slough Council’s Urban Renewal Programme, working with our client Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, which would see a new community stadium built.
Our covered seated stands and standing terraces with cantilever roof are individually built to meet your requirements, depending on your step or division.
Turnstiles are an important feature for a ground and should be safe, durable, reliable and be able to handle high volumes of fans. At Stadium Solutions we manufacture fully self-contained turnstile buildings, allowing two queues in and out of your ground through manually operated turnstiles.
Every stand we make is built to order so you can add features to maximise use and create a unique stand that most suits your needs.
The artificial grass technology of a 3G or Third Generation, and now 4G, pitch has improved significantly over recent years from the early ‘Astroturf’ days and provides a great alternative to natural grass yet meets all the FA, FIFA, Sport England accreditations as well as other sport governing bodies in the UK.
