Project details

We have been appointed as JCT Design and Build subcontractor for the delivery of new facilities at Broxhill Sports Centre in Romford by local contractor Valuegrade.

  • Client: Valuegrade
  • Project: 3G Football Pitch, MUGA, Car Park, Polymeric Sprint Track
  • Location: Romford
  • Sector: Leisure
  • Value: £1.1m
  • Contract Duration: 20 weeks


The scheme is part of Havering Council’s vision to provide the community with exciting new sports facilities that will include a new full sized 3G football pitch designed and constructed to meet the requirements of the FIFA Quality Concept, floodlit multi-use games area along with a polymeric sprint track and car park.

The original earthworks design required 8,467m3 of cut and 5,585m3 of fill with a surplus of 2,882m3 materials to be taken to landfill. During the tender stage, our earthworks team collaborated with Valuegrade and developed an alternative design that included optimisation of pitch levels and landscaping solutions.

Through our intervention, we reduced the design to 7,763m3 of cut and 7,871m3 of fill, saving the client in disposal costs and ensured the scheme could be delivered within their budget.

“We collaborated with O’Brien’s and believe the time spent prior to work commencing on site has been extremely valuable with regards to managing out the problems that are normally associated with these types of schemes.”
