Sports and Leisure

Buckingham Group is recognised as a major contractor in safely delivering very high quality, unique and iconic, Sports Stadia, Leisure, Training, and Community Sports Facilities on time and within budget. Our experience embraces the following multiple award winning projects:

  • The BREEAM Very Good American Express Community Stadium at Brighton
  • The BREEAM Excellent Copper Box and Multi-use Arena at the Olympic Park

The majority of the projects we undertake are procured on a design and build basis, either with novated or appointed Design Teams. We retain excellent, collaborative working relationships with the UK’s leading sports Designers, Architects, and Engineers, who work alongside our in-house design and construction Sports and Leisure Teams.

For the design, construction and operation of our Sports and Leisure Projects, we understand the commercial reality of today’s sports facilities and work closely with Clients, Clubs and Design Teams to maximise and protect revenue streams, minimise disruption to ongoing operations, and provide early release of seats and/or guaranteed completion dates. We focus on:

  • Health and Safety, Quality and Environmental (HSEQ) Management
  • Energy efficiency, with a number of our projects completed to BREEAM Excellent / Very Good
  • Added value and performance
