Type of installation: New training ground
Location: Reading FC
Reading’s success is a ringing endorsement for Kestrel who constructed Reading’s new training ground surfaces at the start of the season.
Kestrel were contracted to construct a new training facility for Reading FC’s Training Academy. A specification was drawn up that would provide the club with a pitch that was a mirror image of the current one in place at the Madejski Stadium.
As well as this specification Kestrel were required to create as many high quality playing surfaces in the area provided.
The first team have been doing their match preparation on the stadium specification pitch and like the team, it’s performing well!
There were also improvements to the youth academy pitches with general renovations carried out.
Overall Reading were delighted with the new facilities
“We were extremely happy with the service Kestrel provided. The quality of the surface was first class. The players, staff and all levels of management commented on the surfaces Kestrel were responsible for and we have great confidence in the quality Kestrel can achieve. That’s why we’ll use them to carry out our end of season renovations and other maintenance work.
The training pitch has been instrumental in our rise to the top of the Championship and our first appearance in the Premiership! The new facilities are indicative of the standard of quality we are setting at the club and Kestrel are a part of that.”
