Kier Construction, one of the largest construction companies operating in the UK, selected Clark & Kent Contractors to build the Telford National BMX track at the newly constructed Phoenix Academy School in Shropshire.
Before this, Clark & Kent had been involved in the design process, working closely alongside consultants and architects on BMX track designs to maximise the use of space within the confines of the small site.
Working from the formation level, Clark & Kent undertook the care of every aspect of the build, including;
Clark & Kent also supplied and installed wooden spectator fencing to ROSPA standards and finally completed a bound surface car park area that was machine laid to achieve the highest levels of artistry.
Since installation, participation levels for BMX sport in the Telford area have risen dramatically, and the facility has successfully hosted many large race events. The BMX track continues to go from strength to strength.
The track, located in Dawley, is part of the Phoenix Academy, which now has national and regional standard facilities for many sports.
The 390 metre BMX track includes an elite section for professional riders and a development track for young children and novices.
