Cambridge United open Modulek designed training ground building

Modulek are delighted that staff and players at Cambridge United have started the move into their new building and are experiencing the benefits already.

It was clear from the outset that the club wanted more than a building with new facilities. The building was symbolic of the Owners and the Boards confidence in the club and their aspirations to take the club forward.

Modulek were tasked with designing a building to bring the whole club together and take on the latest energy efficiency innovations to deliver a building targeted at BREEAM Excellent standards. A sedum roof, solar PV, ASHP hot water, heat recovery ventilation, optimum U-values, rainwater harvesting, and sustainable timber cladding were all components which were included to provide the highest levels of sustainability for the future of the Club and the local environment.

Inside the £3.5m facility there are separate changing facilities for the first team and academy players. A gym, physio and treatment room, a 30-seat analysis theatre, a laundry and a boot room, a catering kitchen and a central dining and social area, offices and meeting rooms.

At the opening CEO Alex Tunbridge stated, "Today marks an important step forward for the Club. Creating training facilities fit for purpose at this level of the professional game which can help attract, retain and develop players and staff for the future is fundamental for us becoming a sustainable League One Club.

Modulek are a leading MMC design and build contractor who specialise in delivering bespoke training facility buildings to professional sports clubs across the UK.
