Multi-Use Sports Area for Bellshill Academy, UK
Spectacular sports facilities for Bellshill Academy
HAGS have a long-standing relationship with North Lanarkshire Council having worked on several large projects with them in recent years and were invited to tender for the provision of a large Multi-Use Games Area at Bellshill Academy. The contract was the largest development of this type that North Lanarkshire had carried out and was awarded to HAGS via a competitive process.
The eye-catching Multi-Use Games Area, produced and implemented by HAGS, maximised the use of available space and featured an anti-slip polymeric surface to create a multi-purpose zone offering a range of different sports activities. The design encompasses three sports Arenas all with different line-markings, an outdoor fitness area and a warm-up warm-down zone. This is surrounded by a 400m running track and a 65m sprint track.
Deputy Head at Bellshill Academy, John McGuire, said "The new MUGA facility has had a hugely positive impact at our school. It has brought a new dimension to sports classes, allowing staff a far greater range of options in their delivery of lessons. The pupils love using the facility and it has been a boon for after school clubs as well as encouraging pupils to be active at interval and lunchtime."
Ross Dunn, Play Services Manager at Culture NL (responsible for the management and operation of North Lanarkshire's cultural services), commented “From the initial contract award through to handover HAGS have continued to meet and exceed our expectations. Throughout the process they worked closely with ourselves and the school to ensure the completed site met all our specifications and carried all of the construction out within the school grounds during term time without a single issue. The on-site contractors were professional and courteous at all times and flexible to the sometimes challenging demands of working within a school environment.”
“HAGS provided extensive elements of added value during construction which greatly enhanced the completed development. We would highly recommend them for any projects of a similar nature.”
