Leicester City FC chooses
Style for new training ground
Having won the Premier League in 2016, Leicester City has continued to invest in its facilities – a great example being the club’s new training ground in Charnwood, north Leicestershire, which spans an impressive 185-acres.
The training ground’s main building, which is the new home to staff and players on a day-to-day basis, offers an exciting set of facilities – all designed to improve the team’s performance year on year.
Working at the new training ground with architects, KSS, and contractor McLaren, Style was specified to create flexible space in the club’s analyst and technical coaching room.
To achieve this, Style installed a glass folding wall with a 40dB Rw acoustic rating to enable the room to be divided into two, or opened up into one large room.
The choice of a glazed folding wall system allowed maximum light into the rooms as well as visibility and an open plan feel.
“We were thrilled to be involved in creating flexible space at Leicester City’s prestigious new training centre,” said Steve Williams, sales director for Style Midlands, “and we’re grateful to their interior designers, Ideal Group, for choosing us.
“The folding wall that we installed is a floor supported centrefold system which is simple and light to manoeuvre and means you can alter the use of the space in an instant.
“Thanks to its great acoustic integrity, you can work either side of the wall without being disturbed making this an ideal solution for a room where there is analysis and technical coaching.”
Style is the UK’s market leading, multi-award-winning moveable wall specialist with offices across the UK and a showroom in London.
The company offers moveable and folding walls for all requirements and budgets – from simple folding walls such as the one at Leicester City through to major fully automatic installations.
