Laudsdale Road – Rotherham Council – MUGA Refurbishment

“We are delighted to see the completion of the refurbishment of the play area. We recognise the importance of providing a safe and enjoyable place for children and young people to play and socialise, which we hope the improvements will help to deliver.”

Councillors Joanna Baker-Rogers and Michael Bennett-Sylvester, Councillors for Dalton and Trybergh Ward

“As a Council, we are committed to investing and improving neighbourhoods across Rotherham. The project is an excellent example of neighbourhood working and how it supports the delivery of local plans and priorities.”

Councillor Sarah Allen, Deputy Leader of Rotherham Council and Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Working

Lightmain were approached by RMBC (Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council) after having successfully completed the tender stage to undertake a full refurbishment of their existing MUGA at Laudsdale Road.

The works included the repair, or, replacement of panels as necessary by removing them from the site and having them re-galvanised and powder coated, stripping and repainting of all metal work, new basketball backboards and rings, and the re-lining of sports markings on the existing tarmac surface.

The client were effectively left with a new MUGA for a fraction of the cost as we were able to refurbish what they already had. If they had opted for all new fencing and goals, including surfacing and the removal of the existing, they would have been looking at around a 6-figure budget.

The project, despite having its own access challenges, was delivered on time and to budget without the need to claim on the contingencies included within the original submission.

The finished results look fantastic and the Council were delighted with the outcome. An event was held in August 2023 to officially celebrate the opening of the newly refurbished MUGA.

We can offer a variety of bespoke solutions from Archways, Fencing and Artwork to much more, including metal works and fabrications to design assistance and installation… contact us to find out more.
