ISG is building a National Speedway Stadium and a National Basketball Performance Centre. It is also partially refurbishing the existing leisure centre on site and installing two floodlit 3G artificial grass sports pitches. One of these will be within the speedway track.
The contact was procured by Manchester City Council through North West Construction Hub (NWCH). ISG was selected for the project nearly two years ago. (See our previous report here.)
The 6,000 capacity speedway stadium will become the home of the historic Belle Vue Aces team. The new National Basketball Performance Centre will be a new-build steel frame structure, with modern composite cladding panels to its façade. It will have a 2,000-seat match court and will be the hub for England Basketball’s national teams.
ISG regional managing director Danny Murray said: “This highly-anticipated development marks a major investment by the council into outstanding new sporting facilities in East Manchester. Procured through NWCH, the scheme is rooted in the principles of maximising efficiencies and driving out waste from the construction process. ISG is also committed to providing a community skills and training legacy, as well as fully utilising the expertise of the regional supply chain to deliver this keynote regeneration project.”
