As part of a £3m project for Interserve PLC, they helped to build a new Sports Centre and Swimming Pool at the University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston Campus. Later this year the company plan to release a showcase video of the works they completed there...so watch this space!

In addition, there will be a state-of-the art gym, activity studios for fitness classes, a squash court complex, a large multi-sports arena, climbing wall and much, much more.
The new sports centre’s size and quality will be unrivalled in both the health and fitness and higher education markets. It is designed to provide unrivalled opportunities for everyone from beginner to elite athletes and be supported by a world-class team of trainers and sports experts.
