GL events Seating & Stadia has provided over 2,000 seats within an open-top stand at Kent County Cricket Club’s nursery ground in Beckenham, South East London. Working with Galliford Try Construction, the club is undergoing a multi-million pound redevelopment program, which is due to be completed this autumn.
This seating stand is fitted with toilets and storage space in the underlying concourse and is just one of the elements that will dramatically enhance the cricket facilities at the Beckenham Ground, and will include an indoor cricket school to be built to ECB Academy standards, as well as a new spectator stand for 2,000 that will increase ground capacity.
Works underway also include physiotherapy treatment rooms, along with a gym and Pilates studio, and a conference and banqueting area to seat 160 people, with bar and kitchen facilities. In addition, new offices, a floodlit AstroTurf football pitch, two hard standing tennis courts, and car parking complete the ambitious developments of the site.
Jamie Clifford, the Club’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “It is very exciting that this long talked about project is now moving ahead, and it is wonderful to think that before the end of the year the Club will have such a magnificent facility from which to run Cricket, at every level, in the north of the County.”
