The Urban Sports Park, Folkestone

Location: Folkestone

Client: Shepway Sports Trust

Value: £8m

This multi-storey sports venue will be located in the heart of Folkestone, on the junction of Dover Road and Tontine Street, about a 5 minute drive from Jenner HQ.

The Urban Sports Park will provide the local community and those from further afield the chance to participate in many different sports including skating, boxing, climbing and bouldering. Each floor will be distinctive and offer a unique experience for visitors. The centre will offer nearly 600sqm of climbable spaces and the ground floor will host a competition sized boxing ring.

The Urban Sports Park will be managed by Shepway Sports Trust (SST), the Folkestone-based independent charity established to encourage participation and excellence in sport.

The scheme has been designed by the award winning Guy Hollaway Architects and will be delivered using various construction techniques including timber and concrete surfaces for the skate floors, combining the need for durability and flexibility to modify and upgrade as skating trends evolve.

Our construction work begins in Autumn 2017 and is due for completion circa Spring 2019.
