Britannia Park changing rooms

A project is underway in Rowley Regis to improve the infrastructure, facilities and environmental quality of Britannia Park, for the benefit of local people and neighbouring communities. Sandwell Council and the government Towns Fund are jointly funding it.

One new feature will be a low-carbon community building with referee facilities, for use by grassroots football teams.

Urban Design and Building Services (UDBS) is delighted to be supporting the delivery of a changing room block within this building, with project management, design, quantity surveying and structural roles. We are working with an external partner for the mechanical and electrical design work.

Our architects have designed the layout of the changing rooms in accordance with guidelines set out by the Football Foundation, which promotes fair access, welcoming and inclusive spaces, and minimising barriers to participation. Our goal was also to ensure the space is robust, economical to run, has minimal maintenance requirements, and is made from materials that are sympathetic to the building’s park surroundings.

We based our feasibility design on a modular-style building. But with modular build delivery currently exceeding twelve months, we are now procuring for a traditional build.

The building has received planning permission and the work is going out for tender imminently (October 2023).

As well as benefiting from the new changing rooms, grassroots football teams will soon enjoy improved pitches at Britannia Park, thanks to our landscape architects carrying out further drainage works.
