First brick laid in pavilion project
THE first brick of the £600,000 sports pavilion at Butt Field, Bingham, was laid yesterday.
The contractors, Beaufort Construction of Sutton-in-Ashfield, have finished the foundations of the building.
The bricklaying stage is expected to take around four weeks to complete.
Mr Steve McRobie, the chairman of Bingham Town Youth Football Club, laid the first brick.
He said the project was about three weeks ahead of schedule.
Mr McRobie said: “Once the bricklaying is complete, we have the roof to go on and then all the internal electricity and plumbing works to follow.
“Things have gone particularly well. We haven’t come up against any problems. It has all gone according to plan.”
He said contractual problems were delaying the three new football pitches, but he hoped they would be solved in a meeting next week.
Mr McRobie said the older pitches, nearest to the pavilion, were having new drainage installed because they would be used more when the pavilion is open.
It is due to be completed in early March.
There will be six changing rooms, showers, toilets, a social area, storage space, carpark, kitchen and rooms for officials.
