Not sure id fancy saying that will be all up and running for say May 2020.

That’s because it’s all set for end of June 2020, right on track according to the construction statement :thumbup:

More good photos on Twitter on inside the  Training Centre and the indoor pitch. It seems there’s a shift on sub contractors promoting their work at the ground. Hopefully it’ll mean more better quality updates of progress.

I'm still happy to wager that 1st July that complex will not be ready and complete for full use.I think we need to be a little more patient .Construction possible yes but pitches set in April not likely But pre season for August should be on.

My wife went round last week, she says she has never seen such an efficient building site in 17 years in her job.

What is her job?

She's the one that had to read through all the letters from frank and explain to the local councillors that it was mainly beneficial to the local area. Because the alternative was 1000s of houses being built on it eventually lol

 

Also know as the principal planning officer for Charnwood council who dealt with the application.

Deserves a raise just for this

If you could email the director at charnwood and pass that on lol

 

And before any questions it, yes she did read every objection personally. Professional to the last.

 

I'd have scanned most of them and burnt them. Probably why I don't work for her lol

These were on JCB's twitter feed this week!

Ta!

 

Found this, for anyone (unlike me) is interested in this kinda thing:

 

Watling JCB propels Leicester City up the table

Added: 21 November 2019

It's great to see our products working locally and we're delighted that a number of machines sold by us here at Watling JCB have made their way onto the site of the brand new £120m Leicester City Football Club training and performance facility. The football club has enjoyed unprecedented success in the last few years; reaching the top of the Premier League tree in 2016 and currently flying high near the top of the league. Our own success has run in parallel with Watling JCB achieving the top of our own pinnacle as World No 1 JCB dealer last year. You could say we’re both helping to put Leicester on the map.

The new state-of-the-art training ground is being developed on a 185-acre site in Charnwood and will feature a full-size indoor artificial pitch and 11 full-size outdoor pitches, including a 499-seater mini-venue show pitch. The training centre building includes dining areas, administration offices and a media centre.

JCB machines are helping with every step of the build including a JCB Loadall telehandler and JS 145 tracked excavator on hire from Watling JCB customer, Willow Hire. Two super safe hi-viz JCB 7-tonne dumpers have been supplied by Hewitt Sportsturf; another Leicester-based customer that specialises in the design and construction of natural grass sports surfaces.

We’re also delighted to see two recently retailed Access Platforms working on-site helping to carry out electrical and mechanical installation work. The highly distinctive units were hired from Thurmaston-based BJB Hire by ABS Midlands Ltd and will be on site for up to six months ensuring that all work at height is carried out safely and efficiently. Reliability and performance were key features for Russ Conway at BJB Hire; “We recently bought two S1930E JCB Electric Scissor Lifts to fulfil a contract at the new Leicester City FC training ground after
hearing positive feedback from the marketplace. For such a high profile contract we needed to make sure we provided the safest, most productive machines. The JCB scissor lifts are fitted with safety features including control interlocks, speed limiting at height and a load sensing system. They are both on hire and we’ve had no issues so no news is good news.”

£120m, looks like the budget was increased. We're massive.

Surprised they're using the S1930E. I'd have gone for the S1930F to be honest.

This is why you aren't involved, the F clearly is incapable of carrying out the work
