Independent construction firm wins £3.5m rugby ground clubhouse scheme

Rugby club Kendal Hornets have selected the independent developer Pinington to work on the new construction of a club house, in a project worth around £3.5m.

The projects comes on the back of a number of high profile contract wins for the Lancaster based firm, who are enjoying a period of sustained growth and a healthy looking project pipeline.

Work is about to start on the clubhouse, sports and training facilities, whilst the team's old ground will be transformed into a new Sainsbury's supermarket offering around 83,000 sq ft of retail space. The Sainsbury's development will be handled by another North West firm, Morbaine who are based in Cheshire.

Pinington have additional projects awaiting a green light, and Managing Director Mark Ayton believes a lot of their success is down to key framework partnerships which are aiding the companies growth plans.

Mr Ayton said they were looking forward to building a modern and striking new home for the Kendall Hornets and that the development will deliver outstanding facilities to help develop players of the future.

There have been a number of high profile projects awarded to Pinington already in 2016 including the construction of a new Engineering Centre facility for Blackpool and Fylde College.

Other projects include a project for Myerscough College to develop a Food and Farm Innovation Technology center and working with haulage firm Surefreight on a new warehouse development.

The company have also enjoyed further success in negotiating ongoing contracts with county councils, including Cumbria and Lancashire.

Pinington was appointed on a 4 year contract by Cumbria County Council in March this year and also extended its partnership with Lancashire County Council on 3 separate contract agreements, which will each last for 4 years.

Kendal Hornets, who were promoted to the National League this season, are looking to move into their prestigious new home next summer.
