Bernard Ward in top form 


Peterborough-based building contractor Bernard Ward Ltd has been awarded the contract to design and build a new fitness suite for Stanground Sports College.

Bernard Ward Ltd was chosen to partner this project because of its particular expertise in working with schools and colleges and on community projects within Peterborough and the Cambridgeshire area. It was also able to design and build an extensive facility around a limited, fixed budget which the college had available.

The 400 sq m, two-storey, fitness suite will include a reception area, two changing rooms, a viewing gallery with meeting area, a classroom and a computer room. It will take twenty weeks to build and will be opened in time for the autumn term.

The design was made particularly complicated because of its location between two existing buildings within the college grounds. Construction work has had to be carefully planned to minimise any possible disruption to classes and to avoid any dangers that could be posed from equipment and plant on the site.

Jonathan Digby, Director of PE and Sport at Stanground College, said: “This is a very important project for us. We are one of only 140 dedicated sports colleges in the country and it is important that we have first class facilities. This will not only provide an essential resource for us but also for local schools and the community. We are very excited about our new fitness suite and are very pleased with the work Bernard Ward is doing for us.”

Steve Downes, Managing Director of Bernard Ward, said: “We have a lot of experience working on time critical projects such as this. Because of our experience we are able to provide a cost effective service. I am sure that Stanground College and its community will get a lot of pleasure from the fitness suite.”

The £400,000 fitness suite, which it is jointly funded with the local education authority (LEA) and the government, extends the current sports facilities at Stanground college. A second phase of the development is also being planned which will include a nursery.

The Stanground college contract is one of a number secured by Bernard Ward Ltd so far this year, with the total value of awards already exceeding £5 million.
