New sports facilities for London school

Advising the client and negotiating with local authorities helped provide a state-of-the-art multi-use games area for Queen’s Park Community School.

Queen’s Park Community School appointed Eddisons to deliver project management and contract administration services for this exciting project for the School. Multi-use games area (MUGA) pitches are becoming the top choice for organisations looking for a durable, safe option that has multiple uses for sports and play.

The client had received planning permission to go ahead, subject to a number of planning conditions. Once we had appointed Blakedown Sport and Play as contractor, the project team, headed by Ryan Lambert, made an application to Brent Council to discharge all conditions.

One of the largest challenges was that of neighbours objecting to the works because of potential disruption to daily life. Understandably, approval then took longer than normal as each planning condition had to be considered. These conditions are put in place to protect the people, buildings, and infrastructure that exists where the project is planned for. Fortunately, the council accepted our application and work was able to forge ahead.

We worked closely with Blakedown Sport & Play throughout the project to ensure the pitch was completed on time, in budget and created as little disruption to everyday life within the surrounds of Queen’s Park Community School as possible.

With hard work and consistent communication between all parties involved, the school was able to safely continue running during construction and the whole community can benefit – from pupils having a great facility, to external parties renting the space for their own use.

It was a fantastic experience to work with Queen’s Park Community School and Blakedown Sport and Play, on such an interesting and worthwhile project.
